Presentation - Haut Jabron canyon
The Haut Jabron canyon starts near Peyroules and flows into the Verdon near Trigance. This 35 km long tributary has carved a beautiful canyon hidden within a forest. It's a geologist's dream. The water has dug some tight limestone canyons which are almost underground. The environment is simply wonderful. You can jump into blue water pools, enjoy natural water slides, safe climbing and 15m abseiling.
Level: beginners (familly, children)
Jumps et slides are not compulsory. Thus, everyone (families, children of 10+ and beginners) can enjoy this canyon depending on their own capacities.
