Our office is in the Gorges du Loup (Syndicat Local LESGECKOS) :
We have all our equipment and we have a private parking, no parking problem which is a real plus considering the difficulty of parking in the Gorges du Loup, it gives us a very important asset to our competitors.

What should I bring for a canyoning outing?
- A swimsuit,
- A towel,
- A pair of good shoes with which you will walk in the water and the stones, it is necessary that they hold well with the foot (with laces) and do not have holes …
For the day canyons you will need a picnic in the form of sandwich and cereal bar that we will put in waterproof boxes, nothing fragile because the bags will be thrown into the water and sent in the slides …
What should I bring for a ROCK CLIMBING OR VIA FERRATA outing?

Is the specific canyoning material provided?
We will provide you with a neoprene suit in 5 mm thick (we will have to communicate your sizes and weights), a harness and a helmet. The bags and food containers will be provided for the full day canyons.
IF YOUR WEAR GLASSES?
If you can do without during the activity, it is safer but if you need to keep them there are two possibilities. Either you take a cord that holds well to not lose them, or you take a hard case to protect them on every jump and slide (you put this case in your suit).
Is there a boat for canyoning?
Do not laugh, we are often asked the question… No boat in canyoning, we walk down the river, and we cross the obstacles in rappelling, jump or toboggan …
