Easy to access from Lyon, Grenoble, and Valence cities, it's hard to imagine while driving on the way from Grenoble to Valence that at "La Rivière," a small village next to the canyon, there are hidden beautiful waterfalls suitable for beginners to experience canyoning.
However, once you reach the parking lot, you quickly arrive at the entrance of a stunning gorge where waterfalls and pools are lined up, ready for rappelling, sliding, and jumping.
The Versoud Canyon is indeed one of the best canyons in the western barrier of the Vercors Massif for discovering canyoning activities in Isère.
It is easier and shorter (only 3 hours) than the Écouges Canyon Part II, with a brief 10-minute approach walk and a comfortable flat return walk.
Everything flows smoothly in the canyon, with very little walking between the obstacles. You'll encounter a series of hanging basins, waterslides, rappels, and jumps. This canyon is well-suited for groups "He/Stag" and families with children seeking an easy canyoning route near Grenoble. It is also a great choice for corporate outings from Lyon, Grenoble, or Valence. Leisure organization groups can also enjoy this canyoning experience near Grenoble.Read more

No one is mandatory, it’s possible to bypass, to waterslide instead, to jump or abseil down.
It is possible to make jumps up to 27 ft (not mandatory) in the Versoud canyon, provided that your level allows it (to see on the spot with the professional instructor).
It is a beautiful waterfall that we start rappelling down and then, we end it by sliding so as not to get too fast in the water if we started it sliding from the top. The obstacle is 33 ft long, the rope is 17 ft long to start the getting down on the first part of the waterfall.
