Infos & Booking


Come to refresh yourself and have fun on this canyoning / aquatic trekking course which takes place in the exceptional setting of the Loup gorges, one of the most beautiful rivers of the Alpes-Maritimes.

I propose you a playful descent, a mix of hiking and white water, with many jumps and natural toboggans. The obstacles (which can all be bypassed and are therefore not mandatory) are very progressive in terms of difficulty: you start with jumps of 50 centimeters and the final for the bravest, and provided you have perfectly integrated the jumping techniques, can go up to 10 meters high! This aquatic hike does not require the use of a rope, for example to make abseils. You just have to swim, slide and jump in the transparent waters of the Loup River.

The descent will be adapted to the group: I will pick from the multitude of jumps, slides and swimming passages where you float on your back (helped by the neoprene suit which increases buoyancy) while taking the time to admire the magnificent environment, to make the best possible course.

In family with the children (from the age of 8 years old) or between sportsmen, this descent will leave nobody disappointed and will not traumatize anybody!

If you are in the mood for more technical canyon descents, I advise you to visit the magnificent and nearby canyon of Riolan, canyon of Gours du Ray or canyon of Saint-Auban.
