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 Clue de Saint Auban is characterised by its frosty mint freshness and its infernal rhythm, a tonic cocktail ! A succession of beautiful basins offer a series of jumps and slides during a 2h30 descent. At 2/3 of the way down, you can jump off an 11m waterfall and go down the next 40m on a zip line ! Saint Auban is the first canyon crossed by the Estéron. Further downstream will follow: the Clue des Mujouls, the Clue d’Aiglun and the Clue de la Cerise. In Saint Auban, canyoning is only allowed on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays ; the other days are reserved for fishing.

Meeting point

The meeting point is at the bottom of the Saint Auban canyon on the D2211 between Saint Auban and Briançonnet, next to the bridge over the Saint Pierre.
