Canyoning trip on the Haut verdon

Daytime course. Very complete descent in an Alpine setting and crystal clear water.

One of the most sporty courses in the region; it is reserved for people with an excellent physical condition. You will chain great jumps and rappels watered in this flagship canyon of the Haut Verdon valley.

Description Canyoning : Canyoning - Torrent de la lance

Lola, your canyon guide offers you a magnificent and sporty day in the torrent of the Lance, located next to the village of Colmars, on the Haut Verdon, one hour from Castellane.

Count 6 to 7 hours of activity. It is therefore necessary to arrive with your eyes wide open and at the best of your form.

After the presentations and once the equipment is distributed and the picnic is packaged in the waterproof cans, we start with a beautiful approach walk.

This one is rather steep and will last a good big hour before reaching the start of the canyon at 1,600 meters above sea level.

The torrent of La Lance is the perfect deal for a sports audience that has already practiced and that, of course, is not sensitive to vertigo.

The approach walk is rather steep, but it is largely in the shade of fir trees and the landscapes, magnificent, will quickly make you forget the efforts to be made.

Here we go!

We put on the combis and throw ourselves into the water. Large limestone slabs to begin with, bring us to the first obstacle to cross: a beautiful reminder of fifteen meters (optional). 

The first part of the canyon is rather open and sunny and offers us a succession of jumps in huge basins. What fun!

Then, change of atmosphere: the setting darkens: Passage of rock receipts and successive reminders.

This first part of the canyon ends with a swimming area before leaving the riverbed. A path leads us through the forest to the Pont de la Lance, an ideal place to take a break and picnic.

We don't fall asleep!

The second part is a little shorter but makes us discover magnificent waterfalls. We cross them by jumping or abseiling (up to 25 meters). The last obstacle is just at the top. A suspended relay that invites us to descend a reminder to the plumb of a huge basin of bubbling water. This will be the last jump, so enjoy!

A short twenty-minute walk takes us back to the cars . It's time for a well-deserved nap.
