Chartreuse Canyoning

The Chartreuse massif is well-known in Grenoble and Chambery for hiking, climbing, paragliding in Saint Hilaire du Touvet and many other outdoor sports. The monastery of the Grande Chartreuse with monks who shows hermitage, silence and loneliness make this massif a special place. For the alcohol drinkers, the different Chartreuse are excellent. What about the canyoning in the Chartreuse massif?

There is about forty canyons in the Chartreuse Massif. In Canyoning Grenoble, we have selected the most beautiful, the funiest and the most accessible canyons. To do canyoning in the Chartreuse, you can choose between the Infernet canyon and the Grenant canyon. Other nice canyons do not fit to beginners because of big abseilings heightening up to 100 meters. For example, the Crolle or Gorgette - Craponoz canyons have verticals of more than 100 meters, so let's imagine the waiting time for a group of 4. That's why, in the selected canyons it is possible to do abseiling, jump, and try natural slides. Moreover, those canyons don't require a 2 hours' walk as many other canyoning in the Chartreuse do.
