1/2 day of canyoning at la Grande-Pointe


Canyon Grande-Pointe

Half-day canyoning: descent of wild canyons using ropes in Grande-Pointe

The canyoning consists in hiking down a wilderness canyon using ropes. Equipped with a helmet and a neoprene suit, you will experiment the pleasure of coming down a vertical water cascade on a rope, amidst a spectacular landscape.

It is an initiation for all those who have never rappelled down a rope. A practical demonstration is made before the descent. It is not escalade. But the descent in an aquatic environment will pleasantly surprise even experienced rock-climbers.

The environment you will be exploring

The climb to the site is done by gondola. The adventure begins with a jump or slide (or both!) into an emerald pool. A few playful abseils (rope descent) then follow, interspersed with small slides and walking in the stream. The ride ends with a spectacular slide that drops into a stunning turquoise pool ! Return on foot to the base of the mountain. The water being approx. 10°C, Canyoning Quebec provide you with a high quality wetsuit.

About the activity

Our guides will welcome you and will prepare your personal equipment. No rappelling experience is required but it is necessary to feel at ease in the water.
