Initiation and discovery canyon, the gorges of Malvaux will make you discover the joys of canyoning in the heart of the Jura.

The course starts with a walk in the river bed before reaching the first jump of a few meters high. The rest is a succession of small rapids and small jumps with possibilities of swimming, toboggan and side jumps.

Note the presence of a natural siphon in the middle of the canyon which, depending on the water level, can be crossed by snorkeling. The canyon ends with a jump of about 7 meters in a magnificent waterfall.
