The Riou has a vertical nature, and is one of the most beautiful canyons of the Verdon gorges.
We will start the tour with a one hour ascending walk by the Notre dame trail, an anthic trail laden with history.
When we arrive on the plateau, we will take a snack and restore ourselves, getting ready to face the verticality of the Verdon… You’ll be fitted with your wetsuits, ready to go for 3 hours in the water.
The canyon is split into two parts:
- The first is an aquatic section in a narrow gorge, where we will jump and use some fixed ropes.
- The second section is vertical with a sequence of several waterfalls that will satisfy even the most daring!
At the end of the Riou, we will arrive in the village of Moustiers, which we will pass through to go back to our cars.
This canyon must be done as early as possible in the season; from May to mid-July.
Allow 4 to 5 hours of your time for the activity.
