CANYONING: half-day descent in St-Auban canyon

A canyon with plenty of jumps !




Meet at 9:30 am or 2:00 pm at the canyoning site of St. Auban (see acces map)

The canyoning guide is there to welcome you. He gives a safety talk, introduces you to the environment and to the abseiling techniques, and hands out your equipment. St. Auban canyon has a lot a water and promises to give you plenty of opportunities to swim, slide on natural slides and jump.

The activity begins with two short slides. A 6 m jump brings you to the point where the canyon becomes deeper and narrower. You then climb down a few obstacles and arrive at the top of a beautiful waterfall which you cross by sliding on a tight rope attached at the other side of the canyon. A 5 m jump follows, and the canyon opens up again. After that point, you can enjoy a few jumps - up to 7 m if you wish to - and a few more exciting slides still await you.

At the bottom of the canyon, a short walk is necessary to return to the starting point.

Due to local reglementation, St-Auban canyon is accessible only on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
