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
– a helmet

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


This is another pearl of the Roya Valley, whose colours, vegetation, beautiful concretions and clear water basins are reminiscent of the famous Maglia. The big difference is that the Vallon de la Carleva is much less frequented, certainly because of the 2-hour walk required to reach the start. It is therefore a long and very wild canyon, a complete course with beautiful jumps, slides and abseils, a physically demanding race and in the end a very beautiful adventure and a beautiful challenge !
