Can be enjoyed in years with very hot, dry summers, canyoning in the Gorges de Chailles is sure to refresh you and leave you with unforgettable memories!

On this particularly aquatic descent, you’ll discover huge reaches, intense abseils, natural rock bridges several metres high, punctuated by numerous jumps

In the Gorges de Chailles, you’ll discover one of the region’s largest siphons, an impressive sight that we’ll confine ourselves to looking at because it’s too long and too deep.

A 1/2 day in the most aquatic canyon in the Chartreuse massif, the Gorges de Chailles canyon!

After choosing from the 11 canyons we offer on our Terra Nova Canyoning website, you’ve chosen the Gorges de Chailles canyon.
The right time to do this canyon is always tricky to find, as conditions are often right in the middle of summer. You need a good level of swimming ability to descend this canyon, and after your booking we will contact you to discuss your requirements and ensure that this canyon meets your expectations.
If everything is ok, we’ll send you an e-mail containing all the necessary information so that you can send us back your sizes and weights.

You’ll have no trouble finding your instructor thanks to the GPS point we’ve provided.
Once you’ve equipped yourself and shared your experiences, we’ll take the cars back to set up the long shuttle bus, which saves you a very long walk back.

The canyon begins with a steep descent to the bottom of the gorge, where the instructor will explain safety and the various obstacles you’ll encounter, as well as giving a more precise explanation of water movement and whitewater swimming.
And off you go, with your instructor into this immense gorge, alternating between jumps, abseiling and swimming.
Passing through thenatural arch and the highlight of the Gorges de Chailles canyon, it’s also an opportunity to take some superb photos.
Don’t worry, we’ll send you the photos as soon as the canyon is over.

After a long swim in a 400m reach, we reach the exit and a 20-minute walk takes us to the car left at the bottom.
We’ll either de-equip or pick up the cars left at the top of the gorges de Chailles canyon.
On the way, we can talk about other descents in the area, such as the easier canyon du grenant or the more vertical canyon de L’infernet, closer to Grenoble.

As soon as you’ve collected your car, you’ll be free to go. After this intense 1/2 day, we suggest you go and enjoy some tapas and cocktails at the Cuzco bar in Saint Béron, a great Peruvian-inspired bar.

Clément

The Gorges de Chailles canyon always reminds me of the giant canyons of Switzerland. This gorge is immense and so are the basins – it’s a canyon of excess!
