The instructor cannot be held responsible for theft, loss or damage to your own equipment.

The Riou de la Bollène-Vésubie is one of those daytime canyons in the Alpes Maritimes that you absolutely must do ! The pools are limpid and emerald. The atmosphere is vegetal, mossy, green and shaded under the branches of the trees. In some places, resurgences flow in drops in plant walls decorated with ferns and mosses. And it is also a very playful canyon with lots of jumps, lots of slides and some abseils in very beautiful waterfalls that make this canyon famous. The whole thing is interspersed with short sections of walking during the 4-hour descent !

Meeting point

The car park of the meeting place is located about 2km upstream of the village of Lantosque 06450 on the Route de la Vésubie M2565. This car park is indicated under the name: “Aire de la Dorgane”.
