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

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


It is difficult to describe the beauty of this canyon in words alone. The Maglia is the best canyoning in the South East of France. It is a long and very aquatic race. The flow is consequent, the water is fresh and crystal clear. A pure moment of canyoning with multiple jumps, slides and swimming sections punctuated by abseiling. The peak of the beauty is reached in the heart of the canyon when the river literally rushes into a cave! It looks like a little earthly paradise, an Eden. The water is blue, emerald, turquoise. The concretions are yellow and reddish. The vegetation discharges in resurgences, tuffs, mosses and ferns at the rhythm of the drip… It is magnificent !

Meeting point

From Nice, take the A8 in the direction of “Gènes” (Genova), at the Italian toll booth take the exit “Vintimille” (Vintimiglia) then follow the direction of Tende, Breil sur Roya. When you arrive in Breil sur Roya 06540, drive through the village on the D6204, leaving the train station on your left, continue straight on at the crossroads with the direction of “Sospel”, drive another 300m and the car park of the meeting place will be on your left after a bus stop and a central median. If you arrive at a Total petrol station, you have gone too far.
