    The Versoud canyon is located in the Vercors massif, halfway between Grenoble, Lyon and Valence. It's a canyoning experience that's as accessible to beginners as it is to experts, as all the obstacles can be bypassed or redesigned. This succession of waterfalls and this beautiful suspended basin forming a small natural pool is a real pleasure of canyoning.

    As you may have guessed, canyoning at Le Versoud is a fun and very complete canyon, offering a whole host of obstacles to help you discover all the different facets of the activity. Several jumps are possible at different heights if you want to give it a go! You'll also learn how to abseil over the waterfalls, and if you're a bit of a player, some abseils can be transformed into more or less impressive abseil slides.

    Just like the Furon canyon in the upper section, the Versoud canyon is very popular for HEN/STAG party because of its fun aspect and its proximity to the cities of Grenoble and Lyon.
    A great half-day to discover this canyon with friends, family or group.

  • 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.


    1Is the Versoud canyon accessible to beginners?
    Yes, it's a canyon where all the obstacles can be bypassed or arranged differently, but if you like to play and have thrills, it's also possible!
    2Are all the jumps at Le Versoud compulsory?
    No, none are compulsory. But if you'd like to give it a go, we'll find some very small ones to get you started!
    3How high is the highest jump in the canyon?
    The highest jump in the Versoud canyon is 8m. It is not compulsory and there are even intermediate levels if you prefer.
    4Why don't some of the abseil ropes reach the bottom in the photos?
    These are the famous abseil-toboggans! You start with an abseil and then finish with a slide. But we won't tell you more to keep it a surprise!
    5I'm organising an HEN/STAG party, is the Versoud canyon suitable?
    The Versoud and Furon UPPER part canyoning courses are the 2 most suitable for HEN/STAG party. They are both fun and all the obstacles can be adapted to suit the wishes and levels of each person.


    The Versoud canyon is full of obstacles that can be very challenging if you want to! The abseiling slides can start from quite high up, and the suspended basin is just magnificent. It's another canyon where everything can be adapted to suit the mood and level of the participants. Le Versoud is a great canyoning spot for beginners and experts alike!
    You can't get much more condensed than this: abseiling, slides and jumps follow on from each other with virtually no junction. To top it all off, there's a bucolic, country atmosphere!
