Beautiful canyoning trips of French Riviera

There are a lot of magnificent spots for canyoning in French Riviera around Nice Cote d’Azur. Whether you are in Frejus, Antibes, Grasse, Cannes or Nice, the French Riviera is the ideal place to discover canyoning, a summer sport which consists in walking, swimming, jumping and toboganning down a river, and abseiling with a rope (except for grade one canyons). More about the canyoning techniques here.
The Nice area is perfect for this water sport which is a good way to escape from summer heat with friends or family. An experienced instructor will guide you during this relaxing canyoning experience.

How strenuous is it?

Even if some canyons are reserved for daring sportsmen, quite a few are accessible to beginners and unexperienced people. Some of them are quite suitable for 8 years old children.
Practitioners must be able to swim and must not suffer from medical impediments.


Grade 1 canyoning, half a day

(40 euros per person if there are more than 6 people, or 45 euros per person for smaller groups)

Jumps are less than 5 meters. No abseiling in this grade! Obstacles are easy to avoid. These canyons are suitable for families as you can bring 8 years old children and for people who do not favour risky ventures.

Mind you: if more daring people join the group, they will be able to slide down waterfalls and jump from higher spots.

This is the perfect canyon for beginners who don’t want to abseil. A lot of fun…
