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 a spring canyon which is done around April, May, June ; after this period the Imberguet is usually dry. The session lasts a short day but it is complete with all the ingredients for a great canyon adventure : great jumps, nice slides and abseils ! After a very short walk, a few jumps and descents, the river enters a grandiose gorge with superb hanging basins. A very vertical section follows with a succession of three abseils of 9, 11 and 21m. The final section is just as aerial but with smaller abseils. This course is predominantly vertical with the ten or so compulsory abseils. A total change of scenery guaranteed !

Meeting point

The meeting place is at the “Parking du pont Durandy” in the commune of Le Plan du Var 06670. When you leave the town of Plan du Var in the direction of Lantosque, drive 200m, the car park is located just after the bridge over the Vésubie, on the right at the roundabout between the M6202 and the Route de la Vésubie M2565.
