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.

– 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.


This is a magnificent canyon in the Vallée du Loup, only 3km from Gréolières. Compared to the “Gorges du Loup” canyon further downstream, the Gours du Ray is much less crowded. It is an excellent choice in high season to avoid the crowds. The area is green and wild, the rocks are white, the water is always crystal clear and fresh. It is a very accessible canyon but complete with everything you need to have fun: small easy abseils, jumps, slides, during a two-hour descent !

Meeting point

When you arrive at the village of Gréolières 06620, always follow the signs “Andon”, continue in the direction of Andon, you will very quickly find yourself on the D79. Once you have left Gréolières, continue for another 3km on the D79. You will see a sign indicating the stream “La Bouisse”, continue 500m and there it is! There are various car parks on both sides of the road. However, if you cross a second stream called “La Haute Bouisse”, you have gone too far. The car park is therefore between the Bouisse and the Haute Bouisse.
