Canyon du Furon lower part

Description

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.
