More Info

Located in the southeast of France, the province of Alpes de Haute is bordered by Italy to the east, as well as by five other French provinces to the north, west and south.

There are three distinct zones within the province: the plateau where, most of the population lives and works; the Lower Alp, which are home to very remote villages and valleys; and the High Alps around which the economy of mountain tourism is built.

The best way to get here for the start of your canyoning expedition is to fly into Marseille or Nice, before taking a bus or renting a car to head north into the park.  




Good to Know


What's the weather like?

The province features a Mediterranean climate lower down in the valleys and flat lands, yet the higher up you go the more alpine the weather conditions. For much of the year you’ll find sunny days and dry air.

How long should I stay?

This depends on how much time you have and what you would like to do. Most guides offer trips that last a day or so. However, since there are several canyons in the area, spending at least a half-week should be enough to get your fill of canyoning and sightseeing in.
