Canyoning Verdon – Le Couloir Samson – Canyoning without a rope

Departing from the canyon part of the Gorges du Verdon, the vertiginous Couloir Samson awaits you to discover the activity of canyoning without a rope.

With family or friends, come and live an initiatory, aquatic and fun experience!

Presentation of the course :

Ideal for exploring the Gorges du Verdon, the Couloir Samson promises breathtaking scenery!

Available every day except Tuesdays and Fridays in July and August, the Couloir Samson course is accessible from 12 years old.

This protected area of the Grand Canyon du Verdon offers you a breathtaking panorama!

First, you will be provided with the necessary equipment and materials for this renowned water hike , ensuring the best experience.


Our guide will inform you of the good behavior to keep in order to preserve this natural sanctuary.

It is essential to know the right gestures so as not to damage the particular and fragile ecosystem of the Verdon!

Indeed, almost inaccessible by rafting or canoeing , the Couloir Samson offers you an incredible spectacle that you are not ready to forget!

The most vertiginous part of the Gorges, the Couloir Samson is the gateway to the Grand Canyon du Verdon.

Much more accessible than a classic canyoning course in the Verdon, the Couloir Samson will still surprise you with some technical passages.

Le Couloir Samson: fun with family or friends

A reference aquatic hiking trail in Castellane, the Couloir Samson is ideal for an ultra fun initiation.

The huge limestone cliffs rising several hundred meters above you offer an unforgettable 2-hour trip.
The course is open from the age of 12 so the youngest can also enjoy this spectacular show.

Practicable from May to September, the opening of this route is subject to the closure of the EDF dam located upstream of Castellane.

It is for this reason that in high season outings are possible on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

On the other hand, we are only informed 24 hours in advance of the opening or not of the dam for the months of May, June and September.

Of course, if the course is closed on the day of your reservation, HPO offers you other solutions:

  • either a postponement of your activity to a later date
  • or a rafting trip instead

Finally, with HPO, you are never short of adventures!
To discover canyoning in the Verdon, trust us, the Couloir Samson awaits you!
