Versoud Canyon | Presentation

The Versoud canyon is located in the Vercors massif in the town of La Rivière (38). It is a wild and wooded course with stunning waterfalls, between 10 and 12 meters high. The pools in this canyon are often deep and give you a chance to make many jumps and slides. It is also possible to repeat some of those jumps to get more fun. If you are looking for an introduction to abseiling, the Versoud canyon offers a 12-meter descent into a beautiful pool suspended between two waterfalls. Most obstacles are optional. This allows beginners to learn safely and easily.

With the Versoud canyon, you can spend a good half day with friends in a wild and versatile canyon.
