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.


The Vallon de la Peïra is an extremely exhilarating and vertical adventure with a dozen abseiling descents down waterfalls of up to 60m, some of which are beautifully adorned with tuff. The flow is ideally moderated so that the spray from the waterfalls refreshes you by misting just right. This is punctuated by small jumps and slides and swimming in the clear, emerald hanging pools. The ideal session for lovers of beautiful abseils !

Meeting point

The meeting point is on the car park at the level of a bridge 1.3km downstream from Saint-Jean la Rivière 06450 on the Route de la Vésubie M2565. If you come from the bottom of the valley, after crossing the place called “Cros d’Utelle” limited to 50km/h, continue for another 5km on the M2565, you will cross a long tunnel of 300m, the car park is located 500m after this tunnel, on the right just before the bridge.
