Activity description

Explore the Imberguet canyon in the Vésubie valley, a fun canyon with many slides and jumps up to 7 meters!

The Imberguet canyon is a tributary of the Vésubie river located in very narrow gorges, within a limestone massif. Famous in the Alpes-Maritimes in the spring, it offers some abseils more or less under waterfall (18-20 m max.) and many other obstacles making it accessible to children from 10 years old!

Your AlpAventure guide will meet you at the exit of the village of Plan-du-Var to distribute the canyoning equipment you will need, while explaining the different techniques you need to know before descending the Imberguet canyon. After a short approach walk of 5 minutes, you will arrive at the start of the canyon in the town of Utelle, located about an hour from Nice. You will then start a very steep descent of 3.5 hours with a series of waterfalls, jumps (including a compulsory 2 meters) and slides in an exotic atmosphere!

You will finally leave the Imberguet canyon before it flows into the Vésubie river, then join the road in 5 minutes by a bridge over the sometimes tumultuous waters of this river. You will then have the feeling of having spent a superb half-day sporting with your family or your friends near Nice!
