Meeting at 9h00 at the clue of Riolan (see access map).

The ABOARD Rafting guide will welcome us and organize a shuttle to drop off vehicles at the arrival of the canyon.

After giving you your equipment, he will give a briefing on rappelling techniques and safety in the canyons.

Then, we will make an approach walk (15 min.) to the entrance of the canyon.

Canyoning in Riolan

The Riolan is a magnificent canyon where the very aquatic descent is mainly done by swimming in, sometimes, very narrow meanders opening onto large basins or slipping under large blocks. A good number of jumps (maximum 6 m.) – optional – and some abseils (maximum 15 m.) will intersect the swimming passages. The canyon is formed in places by impressive limestone walls measuring up to 300 m. high, and we have the surprise of a slide that is sure to give us thrills!

NB: We start the descent of Riolan at the upper access in order to enjoy the entire route, above the old Roman bridge, from which short descents start …
