This extreme canyoning course is perfectly suited for people looking for thrills with high abseiling and very aquatic canyons.
You'll practice in the magnificent canyons of the Alps which offer both pleasure and adrenaline. Indeed, you will face vertiginous rappelling of more than 50 meters high and go down the second highest waterfall in France! In addition, you'll be confronted with slides where you'll be trained in the force of the currents and jump in deep and swirling waters.
Also, you'll discover different canyons (the Ecouges, the Ruzand, the Moulin Marquis, the Floors and Infernet) with splendid rocks and plants but also beautiful light effects.
An intense canyoning trip awaits you with many technical and pedagogical learnings. Despite the difficulties, your instructor will adapt to your level and your desires to help you discover the canyons of the region.
- Rappelling over 150 meters
- Traveling the most beautiful canyons in Isère
- Learn rope management on big abseils
- Various descents in an exceptional setting
- Improvement of different canyoning techniques
- Gaining autonomy during the descent
Every day, the guide will give you an appointment according to your possibilities and the location of the canyon that you'll discover. Arrived at the meeting point, you'll gear up and be briefed on the safety rules and the activity. You'll then walk to the start of the canyon.
Feet in the water, you'll enjoy the environment, the descent and the pleasures they offer you. Then you'll picnic in the middle of the canyon to regain strength for the rest of the descent. At the end of the canyon, you will head to the cars to take off the equipment and start thinking about the next canyon!
