How difficult is it ?

Jumping and tobogganing down the river is good fun. As the Gorges du Loup canyon is not narrow, you can walk down around the obstacles if you do not wish to jump or slide down.

So it is suitable for children and beginners in general as an initiation to canyoning (more than 8 years old).
It is never absolutely necessary to jump or to toboggan.
On the other hand, it can be a challenging and thrilling experience for sportsmen who like tobogganing and you can jump down from rocks 10 meters above the water. Your canyoning guide will show you different options according to your level…

Should you choose grade two trip, you will start a little higher and you will abseil down two waterfalls (one is 12 meters high, the other is 8 meters high).

If you don’t want to learn how to abseil, the best is to choose the grade one tour, also known as aquatic hike. More details about the aquatic hike.
It is up to you to choose the option when you contact me to book for your canyoning trip in Gorges du Loup .


For grade one canyon, 50 euros per person and 45 euros if you book for 6 people and more.
For grade two canyon, 55 euros per person and 50 euros if you book for 6  people and more.
You will pay your canyoning guide with cash when you arrive on the spot.
