Very close to Grenoble and Lyon, the lower part Furon is the only canyon accessible by public transport, a very big advantage for those who do not have a vehicle! It is a complete course with beautiful obstacles in a great magnitude.
It is the first known canyon in Isère since the 90s. It is little shorter in length than the upper part Furon, but the obstacles (jumps and abseils) are little higher.
For example, we will descend in a 20 m Tuf waterfall, we will let ourselves slip in several siphons (not mandatory) and if your heart allows you that to make larger jumps up to 12 m possible (not mandatory).
The temperature of the water in the lower part Furon is colder than the upper part. The cold water resurgence of the caves of Sassenage flows into the Canyon.
Possibility of linking the upper part Furon to achieve the Furon Integral.See more

These two canyons are similar but the lower Furon has some advantages:
From Grenoble, take the tram A to Terminus "Fontaine la Poyat" From the Terminus, there are 2 solutions:
No, it is only a possibility reserved for peaple already introduced to canyoning. This jump can be easily avoided.
Close to Grenoble, just above the village of Claix on the eastern side of the Vercors, There is the beautiful waterfall of the Pissarde which sweeps the last foothills of the Vercors in a 80m waterfall . The course is a combination of walking in the forest and many short abseils and slides. A refreshing trip !!!!
