Big Abseils

200 metres of cliff (and you don't even start to the top !)
in a grandiose setting with the emerald river as reference point studded with multi-coloured boats like toys...

Rappel in the sky of the VerdonEven if, under certain conditions, children can be taken, this is not childs play.Far from it. After 15 minutes walk gradually climbing above the lake, you enter the gorge on the side of the cliff. Don't worry about the breeze : it's the canyon breathing. A fixed rope protects you to the end. The vista opens up before you waterfalls, rodes, peaks, sky, river...

Rappel under the emerald waters of the grand canyonThen you descend, change rope (Damn, my feet aren't touching the rock !) and descend again. A break on a suspended terrace (one of the famous suspended garden well known by climbers) and you're off again for two more overhanging pitches.
And then are your friends, come to get us in pedalos.
