    The Ecouges canyon, located in the Vercors massif, is one of the most beautiful canyons in France. And not for nothing! Just a stone's throw from Grenoble and not far from Lyon, it's a canyon that can be enjoyed all day, with a varied and highly technical upper section.

    The upper part is a succession of abseils in a gorge a hundred metres deep. We'll take the time to explain the rudiments of abseiling in a canyon before plunging into this fault. One waterfall follows another in an extraordinary setting and the abseiling lines will be more or less watered depending on the flow of water at the time. The exit via this magnificent 65m vertical drop leaves no room for vertigo!

    After a good break and a picnic by the river, we move on to the lower part of the Ecouges canyon (Ecouges 2), where the abseils seem much smaller (just 28m!). The route then becomes a fun canyoning experience, with a succession of jumps and slides in beautiful natural pools.

    It's also possible to do just the upper section for half a day.
    The whole of the Ecouges canyon requires good physical condition and vertigo is forbidden. A good command of abseiling techniques (climbing or canyoning) is also welcome

    Here are a few important rules for canyoning:

  • You must be able to swim and not be afraid of water.
  • You must not have any serious medical problems (heart or respiratory problems, back problems, prostheses or other serious antecedents).
    Asthmatics must also be informed at the time of booking.

  • Don't hesitate to contact us if you find yourself in one of these situations (or others), and we can check together, on a case-by-case basis, whether or not canyoning is possible.


    1I've never done canyoning before, can I sign up for the Intégrale des Ecouges?
    To do this part of the Ecouges canyon, it's best to have already mastered abseiling (canyoning or climbing). However, it may be accessible to novices who like thrills, but in this case we'll need to discuss it on the phone beforehand.
    2Are there any jumps in the upper part of Les Ecouges?
    No, none in this part. It's really a series of beautiful abseils in a narrow gorge, but there will be plenty of time to make up for it in the lower part in the afternoon.
    3How high is the highest abseil?
    65 m, the last of the upper section.
    4Can I only do the upper part of the Ecouges canyon?
    Yes, of course. The 2 parts are very different and separated by the road.
    5What if we're a group and not everyone wants to do the upper section?
    That's fine, you can set off in the morning on the upper section with some people and pick up the rest of the group at the end of the upper section/beginning of the lower section. We can all have a picnic together between the 2 sections.
    6I can't find the "Intégral Ecouges Canyon" gift voucher?
    No problem. To offer a "Intégral Ecouges Canyon" gift voucher, you need to send us a request via the contact form. We want to be sure that it is THE canyon adapted to the level and desire of the lucky owner(s).


    This is a MUST! The sequence of the 2 parts is just magnificent. A crazy atmosphere in the upper section and then the fun in the lower section. There's a reason why this section of the Ecouges canyon is one of the most beautiful in France! You never get tired of it.
    The Holy Grail of the Vercors: a technical and challenging route that demands a lot of experience and attention in the morning, followed by a picnic, then the afternoon with the lower part, which is as much fun as you could wish for. You're guaranteed to sleep well the night after this legendary day! It's always a treat to see these beautiful waterfalls!
