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 session starts at the foot of the beautiful and impressive Bès de Courmes waterfall, a dizzying 65m waterfall that we will just watch. As an aperitif we offer an introduction to abseiling in the smaller waterfalls below. This is followed by an all-you-can-eat buffet of jumps and slides ! And for dessert there is a magnificent final drop where the more daring can try their hand at some of the crazier jumps ! All the obstacles are nevertheless easily bypassed by walking on the banks of the river. The setting is sumptuous, the water is crystal clear, a perfect aqualand ! The only drawback is that it is crowded in high season, parking spaces are scarce and you have to zigzag between the bathers’ towels… For more peace and quiet, the Gours du Ray, which is 15 minutes further upstream, is a very good alternative.
