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.


All the ingredients are there to make the Vallon de Cramassouri a magnificent canyon, THE best of the Alpes Maritimes for a half-day trip ! The walk starts with a short approach walk downhill during which you will see below the superb baths and natural pools with turquoise and emerald reflections. The water is beautiful and relatively warm. The session starts with small jumps and slides and then gradually intensifies, the canyon will then rush between sumptuously sculpted cliffs to end in a climax with a sublime 8m waterfall. This waterfall can ideally be crossed by a slide, but also by jumping or gently with a zip line&nbsp!
