On vacation in the south, finally succumb to the freshness of the canyons

During holidays in the south of France, it is impossible to resist the call of the big blue, walks in the pine forests and hikes in the mountains. But another activity could well come and shake up your habits. Canyoning takes summer visitors outside their comfort zone, while offering them a cool break.

For your next vacation in the south, have you thought about canyoning? In Corsica, in the Pyrenees, in Occitanie, in Provence and in the Alps, sumptuous canyons await the daring. You will discover idyllic landscapes in the heart of unspoiled nature. You will experience new sensations. Waterfalls, swimming pools and natural slides, abseils and water walking will allow you to push your limits. Accompanied by your loved ones, you will also create lasting memories.
