The Infernet Canyon | Presentation
The Infernet canyon is packed with everything you could want when canyoning. It is a spectacular gorge. Right from the get-go, you are faced with the biggest obstacle, a 30-meter abseiling descent, where you will be getting very wet. Afterward, you will be able to relax a bit with a few jumps, natural water slides, and short abseiling descents. Canyoning at l'Infernet will definitely be a memorable experience, especially if the water flow is high!
Geologically speaking, the Infernet canyon was shaped in limestone by a torrent called the Vence. The Vence is a tributary of the Isère. This particular trail is the most impressive of the Chartreuse Massif. It's also located near Grenoble, what more could you possibly ask for!
Plan of the day
Firstly, you will need to find the meeting point. Once you have arrived at the meeting point and the instructor has provided you with the canyoning equipment, you will have to walk for 15 minutes to reach the canyon. Then, you need to get geared-up so you can really make the most of the Infernet canyon and in particular the spectacular first waterfall. Upon reaching the end of the canyon, you will have to turn your wetsuit into a backpack for the short but steep walk to the cars.
Niveau : mittel
Canyoning at Infernet is great for thrill-seekers who aren't afraid of a 30-meter high waterfall. It really isn't suited for people who are afraid of heights, however. It's also not recommended to those without any abseiling experience.
