We do not recommend taking other items into the canyon as they may be damaged. The buckets do not protect against shocks and are not guaranteed to be 100% waterproof. As far as possible, do not leave valuables in the vehicles, as the various car parks at the activity sites are unguarded. Leave your jewellery and valuables at home. The instructor cannot be held responsible for theft, loss or damage to your own equipment.

We lend each participant :

– a pair of neoprene socks
– a complete neoprene suit
– a harness equipped with gliding pants, lanyards and descender

The instructor takes a backpack, ropes and a waterproof container for the first aid kit, car keys.


It is the largest canyon in Europe ! In figures it is a start at 2000m altitude, 1500m of difference in altitude over 15km of length spread over 2 days of activity. The Bendola Intégrale is an interminable race reserved exclusively for endurance machines with a mind of steel ! You should not expect a “double Maglia” but rather an extraordinary human adventure where you will have to push your limits for hours on end, walking, climbing, swimming, abseiling, carrying your bag, isolated from the rest of the world in a surreal setting. The expedition starts at dawn with a 4×4 shuttle that we organize. The starting point is located next to the Cime de Marta in the mountain pastures. After a short approach walk, the abseils follow one another with the crossing of basins, dry portions and névés according to the season. The water then runs for good and a total of thirty abseils are necessary to reach the Bois des Ours bivouac. The second day is less vertical but more aquatic in magnificent reaches and meanders dotted with tufa waterfalls until the Pont de Castou which marks the end of the canyon.
