J'ai été ravi de la qualité de l'organisation et du sérieux de notre accompagnant. Un petit groupe de 7 bien sympa, tout a long de la journée. Cool et frais...sans avoir froid ! 😀

Très bonne première expérience en canyoning dans les gorges du loup , idéal pour débuter, les derniers sauts sont assez hauts mais pas obligatoires. Notre guide Jérôme était au top
We had a great time canyoning with the family and I enjoyed some good climbs with my sons. They were flexible and Olivier was helpful and responded really fast.

Level 2 canyoning gedaan. Leuk, gevarieerd parcour met 2x abseilen, vele sprongen en glijbanen. Prachtige natuur. Georges is een topgids die goed op de veiligheid let en duidelijke instructies geeft. Ook de communicatie met Olivier vooraf bij het boeken is perfect. Er worden geen foto's gemaakt tijdens de canyoning, dat had wel leuk geweest.

Expérience extraordinaire. Notre guide, Rémi était top, il a su s’adapter à chaque personne et a été à l’écoute. Et le parcours de 2h-2h30 avec des vues surprenantes est passé à une vitesse incroyable. Merci Rémi ☺️

Première expérience de canyoning incroyable dans les gorges du Loup. Descente en rappel, toboggans, petits sauts, grands sauts, tout y est ! Un grand merci à Olivier mais aussi aux deux guides, Rémi et Simon, pour leur sympathie et leur professionnalisme ! Merci encore !

My family of 8 (14-38) enjoyed a day of canyoning and absailing whilst in France. We chose Oliver’s company due to his excellent communication. He even gave us lots of recommendations for our trip. He would always get back quickly and was very informative. The rates were excellent as we had over 6 people. We were met by Julien our guide who was lovely, comical and embraced our Scottish accent. He was a good laugh throughout. The activity was excellent. We learned to absail too which was fun! Everyone loved the whole experience. If booking please note: there are no changing areas. We had to change in our cars but we dried quickly in the summer sun. I would have loved if the guides had cameras to take photos. We done ghyll scrambling in the Lake District and there were 2 guides - one of which would take lots of photos for us! Although I appreciate, another guide would increase costs and the currents in some of the waters may be unsafe! But just a suggestion :) We would 100% recommend Olivers company and if we were ever returning to water canyon we would absolutely use this company again!

Discover canyoning in Nice with half-day canyons

You can for example choose a half-day tour if you don’t have a lot of time or just if you want to have a soft approach of this water sport. That would be the best choice with children or if all your friends are not very fit as the activity will be of 2h-2h30 in the river.

Furthermore, a jump or slide is never obligatory. Your canyon guide will always be able to offer you an alternative. Children aged 8 and over can also participate as long as they know how to swim and love water! If you want to discover canyoning in the Alpes Maritimes with your family, we recommend this article dedicated to practicing it with children.

Though these outings are rather easy, sportsmen could get a lot of fun as it’s possible to do big jumps or slides if you want.

Discover canyoning with grade 1 trip

50 euros per person or 45 euros per person if you book for 6 people and more

Grade 1 canyoning is also known as aquatic hike. 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. The aquatic hike is mainly interesting if you really don’t want to go down with the rope. As the abseiling technique is very easy, we generally prefer to discover canyoning in grade 2 with almost everybody…

Mind you: if more daring people join the group, they will be able to slide down waterfalls and jump from higher spots (7m).
