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.


The interest of this outing is to discover and contemplate a wild natural environment far from civilisation by taking time out for a day. This session is for those who like hiking. The canyon is a round trip, 45′ of approach walking on the way out, 45′ on the way back. And in the same way, you go down the canyon, then up again. This pretty walk in the meadows of the Estéron plain is a bit long but your efforts will be rewarded by the discovery of the little paradise of the Clue des Mujouls. This canyon is in itself quite flat with few waterfalls and therefore few jumps and abseils. But it is an aquatic course with lots of water. And the Clue des Mujouls like its neighbour the Clue d’Aiglun is quite impressive and monumental. The Estéron has carved out a beautiful recess here with cliffs overhanging by a hundred metres. In some places, resurgences form magnificent tuff waterfalls covered with moss. In these plant walls, the water flows drop by drop… The pleasure is divine for the eyes !

Meeting point

The meeting place is in the village of Gars 06850, at the Estéron car park. Take the Chemin de l’Estéron and park in the car park at the top left before the road is closed to traffic.
