Furon canyon upper part


The Furon canyon is probably the most famous canyon in the area. It is located in the range of Vercors, above Sassenage, approximatly 15 min from Grenoble and an hour away from Lyon.

Tested and recommended by the Grenoble Tourist Office

The upper part of Furon canyon is located in Isère, it is the most popular canyon in the area of Grenoble. This is a half day of 3 hours descent and is suitable for all levels of people, including families, friends, corporate groups or special occasions like bacholor party.

It is a complete route that we propose from the Mayousse bridge to the end of the express part, including many possible but not mandatory jumps (up to 9 m), slides, ziplines, short abseiling, and a part of playful aquatic walk. We will never get bored at the Furon, each obstacle is fun and the final part called the express, there will be the biggest obstacles (jumps and slides) that allow us to finish the canyon in style!

Depending on the level and expectations of participants, different entries and exits are possible in this canyon that allows us to adjust the level of the course in the best way.

An advantage of this canyon is, its water is protected by the dam of Engins, which is located just upstream of the departure of the circuit. In effect of EDF, it regulates the flow to avoid any rise of the water in the canyon in order to assure the safety of canyonneurs.

For those who are wishing to do more than half day, it will be possible to continue on the lower part to achieve the Integral of Furon, one of the best canyon days in the region according to us!

Actuality 2019 : Good condition for the furon !
