The canyon of Riolan is one of the famous canyon in the French Alps, it’s situated in the valley of Esteron, after the village of Roquesteron.

Depending on the time of departure we can really have a perfect clear blue water, so typical from this valley. Some narrow parts are wonderfull.

The water has a natural turquoise blue color because of the limestone which is so particular in the Esteron Valley

In this canyon you’ll have rappelling, walk, swim and jumps. Just a 5 mins walk to go to the departure of the canyon and only 1 min to go out, it’s perfect.

A wild, middle sportive canyon, this is what the canyoning of Riolan offers you.

This canyon is just close to the village of Roquesteron and Gilette in the Esteron Valley. The other canyons in this valley are the one of Cuébris or Aiglun.

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