Presentation - the Loup Canyon
The Loup canyon takes his origin from a small village called Andon. This river flows across the 'Alpes Maritimes' into the Mediterranean Sea. 50kms long, the Loup river is known thanks to the 'gorges du Loup' where you can find one of the funniest canyon offering many jumps and many esthetic waterslides. Unfortunately, the Loup canyon is overcrowded during the summer because of the closeness with the French Riviera population.
The Loup canyon fits to beginners. Jumps are not mandatory. In the case that someone are not at ease, it is easy to drive him out. The open configuration of this canyon enables us to take beginners.
