Activity description

The Riou de la Bollène at La Bollène-Vésubie is a fun and sporty canyon descent where you can abseil down all the important obstacles.

At the bottom of the large coniferous forest of Turini, this very aquatic descent offers many jumps and big slides, reserved for experienced people.

You meet your guide at the exit of the village of Plan-du-Var in the Alpes Maritimes. He gives you the equipment and explains you the various canyoning techniques you'll need for the descent.

After an approach walk of about 15 minutes, you arrive at the departure of the Bollene canyon near the bridge of Oule.

Then, you start a descent of 4 hours: You follow the thread of the water where there are some obstacles that will require you to jump. Then the obstacles become higher and 2 toboggans follow one another. Then some jumps lead to a 10-meter abseil. After the last swim, the canyon stops and gives way to a calm river.

You then walk for about 30 minutes to exit the canyon.

Please note that the exact meeting point always has to be decided with the instructor.
