• What exactly is canyoning?

Canyoning is an outdoor sport in which you descend a river on foot, wearing a neoprene wetsuit and carrying all the necessary equipment. You walk where the river has chosen to go, using the natural obstacles along the way, such as jumps, slides, abseiling and many other surprises that we can't tell you about here!

  • Is canyoning open to everyone?

There's no denying it, canyoning is a sporting activity. If you're motivated and have no contraindications, we can guide you towards the route that's best suited to your needs. Don't hesitate to ask us!

  • Can I go canyoning if I'm afraid of heights?

Certain routes, such as the Infernet canyon, the Alloix waterfalls and the Ecouges canyon INTEGRAL, are obviously not suitable for people suffering from vertigo. But there's no problem with the other descents, as the obstacles can be avoided or negotiated differently.

  • What is the minimum age for canyoning?

7/8 years, but this is more a weight limit than an age limit. There are no neoprene wetsuits suitable for children under 20/25kg. What's more, little ones don't regulate their temperature like adults and will get cold more quickly.

  • Is it compulsory to know how to swim to go canyoning?

No, because the neoprene wetsuit will make you float, but canyoning is still an aquatic activity. If you're not an Olympic champion swimmer, you still shouldn't be afraid of getting your head under water at the end of jumps or slides.

  • Are all the jumps, slides and siphons compulsory?

Jumps are never compulsory in a canyon, just like slides or siphons, which can be impressive. There will always be a way to avoid them or go around them in a different way (abseiling independently or with assistance, or simply walking around them).

  • How do you choose between the different canyons on offer?

If the canyon descriptions don't help you, don't hesitate to give us a call! We'll work with you to choose the route that suits you best.

  • For day trips, what about picnics?

We'll pack our picnics in waterproof canisters and take them with us into the canyon. Bear in mind that the bags (in which the canisters are placed) will be doing the same jumps and slides as we are: eggs, peaches, tomatoes... are therefore out of the question. A good classic sandwich will be welcome.

  • What is the maximum group size?

We limit groups to 8 or 10 people, depending on the canyon.

  • What equipment is provided?

Each person will have a 5mm neoprene wetsuit (long john + jacket), a pair of neoprene socks, a harness with all the necessary equipment and a helmet.
Special canyoning bags and waterproof containers (for picnics) will also be made available to the group.

  • What do I need to bring for a canyoning trip?

All you need to bring is a swimming costume, a bottle of water (1.5 litres for two people) and a pair of closed-toe shoes, such as trainers or hiking boots, to go in the water. We provide neoprene socks but you must bring your own shoes.

  • I'm wearing glasses or contact lenses, is this a problem when canyoning?

No, it's not really a problem. Just remember to use a small cord to fasten them so they don't break.
For contact lenses, opt for daily lenses. You can also take a spare pair that we'll have with us in a dry, waterproof container.

  • I saw that photos were offered, how can I get them back?

We'll have a waterproof camera with us and we'll be taking as many photos as possible throughout the canyon. They're free and we'll send them to you by e-mail, which is easy to download.

  • Can I bring my own camera?

You are not forbidden to bring your own camera as long as it is waterproof. However, we cannot be held responsible for any loss or breakage.

  • What happens if the weather is bad?

Rain is not necessarily dangerous for canyoning, as you'll be wet anyway. On the other hand, we'll have no problem cancelling if there's a risk of the water flow making the canyon impassable.
Naturally, if you prefer to cancel or reschedule your trip, we will not object and your deposit will be refunded in full.
