Canyoning and caving
- The best and biggest indoor canyoning centre in Europe, with 3 landing pools set at different levels and equipped with a waterfall. To get to the top, you can either go up ladders or scale climbing walls of varying levels of difficulty. To go down, you can either abseil, a descent of 5 metres for the most daring, or slide down 2.5 metre-long slides that culminate in a moment of free-fall.
The course takes 1h30 to complete and is open to anyone aged ten and over.
- The Caving zone is a structure composed of an 80-metre-long linear course involving a variety of caving techniques to get through a number of narrow passages, caves and chimneys.
The course takes 1h to complete and is open to anyone aged 6 and over.
Zip-line, rock-climbing and relaxation area.
- Zip-line: to get to the zipline, you go up the "Pic" chairlift that takes you to an altitude of 1776 metres. Then, as you zoom down above breathtaking scenery at an average speed of 130 km/h, for a good few minutes, you'll feel like you're flying !
- The rock-climbing area of Vésubia Mountain Park consists of 12 climbing walls varying in height from 11 to 13 metres. This fun activity is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced.
