Infos & Booking


The lower part of the Écouges canyon is located below the large waterfalls of the upper canyon. This canyoning course is very complete, and it is my favorite.

The atmosphere of this canyon also makes its reputation! The water is clear all year long, it comes directly from the Vercors mountains located upstream. This course is ideal as a gift for a bachelor or bachelorette party. The canyon can also be explored with friends or family with children from 9 years of age and is very suitable for an introduction to the activity.

The descent begins directly with the abseiling of two large waterfalls of 15 and 28 meters, the opportunity for you to learn the techniques of rope descent. You then go on to slides and jumps in beautiful natural pools, including a magnificent abseiling slide known as the "twist" which takes you down a tube. The jumps are 4 to 6 meters high, so they are accessible to those who want to try the art of splashing in canyoning. However, it is possible to avoid them by going around them, using slides or abseiling.

If you have some experience in canyoning, why not try the full descent of the Écouges canyon, one of the most beautiful and spectacular in the region?

If you want to discover other canyoning descents nearby in the Vercors massif, you can follow me in the lower part of the Versoud canyon, in the lower part of the Furon canyon or in the upper part of this Furon canyon.
