Half day canyon with intermediate  level, this ludic descent,  very  aquatic and sporty will charm you!

The canyon is situated between two 150-meter high cliffs. Inside it, you will find many jumps, slides  and a zip line which will  require a  good physical condition.

Sharing this river with the fishermen, a regulation applies to  this  canyon : the  canyoning activity is possible there only  on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Description of the canyoning activity - Canyon de Saint Auban

The meeting point with your qualified instructor,  will be on the carpark  of the canyon (at the edge of the river, at 400 meters from the village of Saint Auban)  located at a 40-min driving from Castellane (30km).

After you’ve  been equipped  with a  neoprene suit,  a helmet and a harness, your monitor will organize  shuttles with the participants in order to put vehicles at the arrival of the canyon (5min).

Then you will do a short walk (200m) to join the starting point of the canyon.
Your monitor will give you all the safety instructions necessary to practice canyoning.

Afterwards, your monitor will  guide you during  2 :30 hours. Along the course, you will find many jumps  from 3 to 6 meters (above three meters, they are not obligatory anymore),  slides,   long parts to be swum and if the number of monitors allows it,  a large zip line arriving in the water.

At the end of the  canyon,  just five minutes walking left to arrive at the car park  where you will have parked your vehicles thanks to the shuttle system.

For the less bold, there is a possibility of looking at the activity from the top of the road overhanging the course.
