Canyoning on the gorges du Verdon in the Ravin de Mainmorte

The Ravin de Mainmorte is a very beautiful and DRY canyon, a Cathedral- like landscape that opens up into the Verdon Grand Canyon.

To have time to get to the Verdon, you’ll start in the morning and do some abseiling (shortest descent is 20m), and some zip-lining.

This trip in fact takes place in the deepest section of the canyon and concludes with a breath-taking vertical descent of 60m split up into two parts: a 2-metre abseil which leads to a platform where you’ll stop for a break and get your equipment sorted.

The second part of the descent is a 40-metre abseil, down a rounded rock formation followed by various other obstacles.

The second half of the trip is much more relaxed and starts with a lunch break on a small beach along the Verdon; perfect for admiring the landscape, enjoying the sunshine and maybe spotting one of the famous Griffon Vultures which live in the Grand Canyon.

Then it’ll be time to set off again, fully kitted out in wetsuits to come back up the Verdon to do the ‘Imbut’, a tunnel through which the Verdon has carved its way, and you’ll go over fords and reach the ‘Maugue’ trail (quite a challenging footpath!).
