Activity description

Discover canyoning in a tropical environment in Martinique thanks to the Saut du Gendarme canyon, in the Morne-Vert region near Fort-de-France!

With family or friends, canyoning will allow you to discover the rich and preserved tropical nature of Martinique. Your instructor will introduce you to the techniques of canyoning on the Saut du Gendarme canyon, in complete safety. This site has been carefully selected and is perfectly adapted to people wishing to discover canyoning, as well as to those who have already done some descents.

After a short walk, you will be immersed in the invigorating coolness of the rainforest. A briefing of the crossing techniques and safety instructions will precede the descent of the Saut du Gendarme canyon, before the tropical adventure in the company of your instructor for 2.5 to 3.5 hours of descent begins! Your exploits will be photographed and filmed, then made available to you at the end of the adventure where a glass of friendship will close your outing in the Saut du Gendarme canyon, just a stone's throw from Fort-de-France.

This canyoning experience proposed by TropiCanyon in the Saut du Gendarme canyon does not exceed half a day, which allows you to have the rest of the day to discover the surroundings of the canyons of Morne-Vert and the Pitons du Carbet. It is also an opportunity to enjoy Martinique's culinary specialties thanks to the good addresses known by your instructor!
