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.
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.See more

The Furon upper part is great for a complete discovery of canyoneering. In this 3-hour trip, there are a variety of jumps, slides, rappels and zipline.
A short 20 minutes hike to reach the top of the canyon, not sporty one. Car accessible.
No jump is mandatory. The first jump from the bridge is about 10m, which is reserved for those who have already had great jumping experience.
At the end of the Express of the Furon du Haut, the last jump is 8m, also not mandatory.
The guide always reserves the right not to authorize these jumps to preserve the safety of participants.
The water of the Furon canyon is fresh all year long because it is orginated from the Vercors plateau located in higher than 1000m of altitude. But you will be equipped and well insulated by good quality neoprene wetsuit and neoprene socks. In addition there will be a little waiting in this canyon, but we are always moving, so we will not have time to be cold!
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 !!!!
