With the mountain rivers of the southern French Alps carving out steep ravines on their way to the Mediterranean, the Alpes-Maritimes is perfect for canyoning. Berenger Aventures will introduce you to some secret and pristine spots just an hour’s drive from Nice, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Côte d’Azur. Half-day and full-day canyoning descents from beginner to advanced are available.Find out more or book a Canyoning Trip | Go >
Berenger Aventures – Rock Climbing
From €35 per person | minimum age 8 years | April to October

Under the instruction of your qualified guide, you’re in safe hands and you’re free to progress at your own rate.
Berenger Aventures offer climbing at a number of famous sites, including the Roya Valley, the Bevera Valley, Trinité, Peillon, Verdon and the Calanques.
There are 3 levels of rock climbing trip available:
- 1-day Climbing School
- 1-day Climbing Adventure in Verdon, the Calanques or the Vercors

Berenger Aventures – Via Ferrata
From €45 per person | minimum age 12 years | March to November
With via Ferrata, the steepest rock faces are now accessible to everyone. Thanks to the network of metal rungs and cables bolted into the cliff, you don’t need to be an expert rock climber to experience the thrill of big-wall climbing. To add to the fun (and challenge), there are zip lines, rope bridges and overhanging sections. In the Roya Valley, just a few kilometres inland from the Côte d’Azur, you’ll find two via ferrata courses, both with options to make them more or less difficult.Find out more or book a Via Ferrata Trip | Go >
