Canyoning in the mainmorte canyon, Alpes de Haute Provence

Located in the heart of the Verdon gorges, this dry canyon is certainly one of the most beautiful.

The starting point is not far from La Palud sur verdon, towards La Maline refuge. We will hike down the Bastidon trail, looking to the canyon from above. Then we will enter the narrow passageway leading to our first abseil. Here we will learn how to abseil, and make you feel confident with all the rope manipulation you’ll need throughout your adventure.

Then we will hike in the narrow canyon and descend a few abseils of different heights, until the last one, a spectacular 45 meters abseil from a natural arch of limestone ! Arrived on the Verdon river bank, we will have a break and a snack before the most exciting part of the adventure !

After being restored, we put on our wetsuits and jump into crystal clear pools, navigate through narrow passageways and slide down waterfalls. 

By swimming upriver, we will access a hidden spectacular place in the Verdon gorges : l’Imbut !

We will visit an underground cave, and end in a elmerald pool where you can adapt the height of your jump depending on your thirst of adrenaline !

And after 50 minutes of ascending hike through the beautiful provence nature, (By the Maugué trail) we will head back to the cars.
