Canyon of Furon | Presentation
The Furon canyon is great fun and accessible to all. Firstly, it is a fun canyon mostly because of its jumps of various heights and its slides. Canyoning in the Furon also gives the chance to set up a small zip line of about ten meters. There are also a few small abseiling, not exceeding 10 meters.
Secondly, it is an accessible canyon. Just over fifteen minutes of access walk and you can reach the starting point in the Furon canyon. And only a few minutes to get back to the vehicles at the end of the canyon. The Furon canyon is therefore an active canyon with many varied obstacles in a wooded environment. None of the jumps are required. That's why it is suitable for beginners. Those looking for adventure will also be able to get the big thrill with jumps up to 10 meters.
