Infos & Booking


Near La Palud-sur-Verdon in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department, the Trou du renard (Fox Hole in english) is a fun and very vertiginous via corda course, located on a cliff overlooking the Verdon River which flows peacefully more than 250 meters below. In this absolutely exceptional environment, the panorama is spectacular!

The progression is made along fixed ropes to which you are connected by means of lanyards in order to guarantee a safe evolution. This easy climbing course, which takes place mostly on ledges, is embellished with various workshops that will give you strong sensations: crossing on a beam, abseiling on a spider's thread of about 20 meters, a 40 meter long zip line at a height of 50 meters, Tarzan's jump (pendular crossing by swinging with a rope like Tarzan on his liana, impressive but very easy and secure) and crossing a small cave (the famous Trou du Renard).

All along this incredible itinerary, you will discover the magnificent and famous gorges of the Verdon from a new angle.

If you like this kind of vertical activity with sensations, I recommend the nearby dry canyon of Mainmorte which combines an incredible descent in a dry canyon with a superb via corda climbing.
