Malvaux’s canyon

The best waterway

Near Foncines-le-bas, a river with an often large flow nestling in a small valley with natural charm offers a summary of aquatic canyoning.

The descent starts with a series of jumps (all avoidable) in beautiful pools of green water, enhanced by fun slides. If you’re a good swimmer, there’s a magnificent underwater section where you can test your apnea skills.

When the flow is strong, several cascades provide an opportunity to feel the power of the water. Finally, you come to the last rise of the descent, a magnificent double cascade, which provides the opportunity for a sporting jump, which is easy to avoid.
