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 walk starts gently with a few small waterfalls, jumps and slides to quickly get to the heart of the matter. This is a grandiose enclosure of great geological beauty in white limestone walls. The more adventurous will not lack for thrills with different attractions available all along the course, some with evocative names: “The cat flap”, “The slide of death”… But don’t worry, swimming in long reaches will keep your head cool. The Clue du Riolan is a major race not to be missed, a magnificent day canyon !
