Challenging, sporty canyons in the Hautes-Alpes

If you know how to handle ropes and wish to explore harder routes, longer canyons or more aerial descents, we can offer several challenging canyon descents, depending on the season and the water levels.

Le Canyon de la Blache

A progressive canyon with a number of abseils through a maze of limestone formations ending with a spectacularly beautiful finale.

This canyon is divided into two stages which allows for a gradual progression in this vertical universe.

The complete canyon offered here is perfect for getting (re)acquainted with abseiling procedures. The first part is magnificent and easy then, after a picnic in a meadow, there is a sequence of three beautiful abseils which bring you to the Ubaye River.

Take time to brush up your technique and tackle high-calibre obstacles.

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO BE ABLE TO SWIM IN ORDER TO PRACTISE CANYONING
