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.


It is a very vertical and aquatic mountain stream. There is no swimming because the pools are too shallow but the waterfalls are well sprinkled, the cold shower is guaranteed. A short section of walking quickly leads to the heart of the matter: the torrent rushes under a very beautiful natural arch to then gush out behind in an impressive 60m waterfall in the middle of the wall. What follows is a succession of 7 smaller abseils between 5 and 30m.

Meeting point

If you are coming from Saint-Sauveur-sur-Tinée 06420, take the M30 direction “Roure, Roubion, Varberg”. Stay on the M30, after the 5th tunnel, drive another 600m and you will be able to park in a parking area on the right. Just after this area, there is a footpath that goes up along a low wall marked with a small sign “290 Ambruos Roure”. If you are coming from the village of Roubion 06420, continue for another 5km on the M30 towards Saint-Sauveur-sur-Tinée, down the twists and turns, a left hairpin and then a right hairpin with a small bridge and an SOS sign. The meeting point is 300m after this hairpin on the left.
