CANYONING – WHITEWATER HIKING IN THE GORGES DU LOUP – GRASSE

Canyoning in the Gorges du Loup Canyon is the best way to discover canyoneering and white-water hiking in south of France.

The Gorges du Loup canyon is an ideal introduction to canyoning on the Cote d’Azur. Located near Grasse, it’s the most well known whitewater scramble (called « randonnée aquatique » in french) in the Alpes Maritimes. The Gorges du Loup canyon is a bit of a choose your own adventure in that there’s always an escape route if you choose not to do a jump or a slide. In the other way, if you want more adventure, there are some lovely jumps and slides, and the possibility to discover abseiling up to 10 meters.

It’s an easy way down, you can choose what you want to do for jumps and slides.

The descent is suitable for kids from 7 years old if they are use to swim and jumps in swimming pool (Weight > 25 kg).

Your guide will show you water falls and naturals slides and you’ll choose what you want to do, totally secured…

In the level II there is rappelling (abseiling), it’s sliding along the rock holding a rope. Everything will be explain to you by your guide of course. It’s a canyon suitable for beginners.

Appointments are made directly on place of activity, our page Map of activities will provide you all the informations required.

For more informations about canyoning on the Alpes Maritimes, I suggest you to look at the leaflet Randoxygènes written by the Conseil Général des Alpes Maritimes (in french only) :

IMPORTANT : HOW TO PARK IN THE GORGES DU LOUP

During summer it’s busy and not easy to find a place to park. The car park at the exit of the tunnel is small. The guides are park there but if you don’t find any places just go further up on the road or down and park on a good place. You’ll just have to walk to the tunnel and the car park with the guides. Easy and not long, take 10-15 minutes before timetable…
