Canyon Location

Activity Description:

This is a long canyon with lots of interesting rocky obstacles to negotiate including several abseils, jumps and toboggans.

Some of the jumps require quite precise landing which adds to the challenge but most jumps can be avoided by being lowered or abseiling if you are uncomfortable with jumping.

At the end there is a dramatic waterfall and a fantastic natural water toboggan slide to abseil down!

This canyon does have a reputation for cold water, which is lovely and refreshing on a hot summer day but a little chilly on colder days!

MEETING PLACE: Ancelle Rouannette Parking

LOCAL DIRECTIONS:

There are two bridges crossing the river in Ancelle. The bridge furthest east has a car park opposite it with recycling bins. From this bridge with the village to your left behind you and parking area in front of you turn left and follow the houses round to your right.

There is a small track turning off on your right after about 50 metres with a wooden sign marked Rouanne. Take this. It turns into an off piste track that winds its way up the mountain. Follow this for about 3km. Allow 15 – 20 mins for this 3km drive over rough terrain. A normal car is fine if you drive slowly. At the end is a grassy car park which is where you guide will meet you.
