Cramassouri is probably one of the most beautiful half day canyons on the Côte d’Azur for beginners. At forty minutes from Nice by car, at the beginning of the Tinée valley, this is an ideal spot for a gradual introduction to canyoning in Nice.
Alex storm in october 2020 has deeply modified the Cramassouri canyon, bringing some stones in the pools. As a consequence, there are almost no jumps and slides anymore. This beautiful canyon is now the perfect place to improve your abseiling techniques.
While following the river, you’ll meet quite a few obstacles which will help you to learn how to abseil gradually and you will become more and more confident. The highest abseil (10 meters) will be at the end.
The rocks above the river are statuesque and no doubt it is one of the most beautiful canyons of the French Riviera.
So it is a perfect introduction to canyoning as well as a fine way to enjoy an afternoon in a magnificent environment.
60 euros per person and 55 euros if you book for at least 6 people.
You will pay your canyoning guide with cash when you arrive on the spot.
What do you need?
Swimming trunks and sport shoes, like running shoes or tennis shoes, but do not wear bathing shoes . I will provide technical gear.
