Description: A little over an hour from Besançon, the Malvaux Gorge is accessible to all ages and skill levels. The gorge is open and airy, features a fun mix of slides, float sections, optional jumps (from a couple meters to 8m for the most adventurous). All of the jumps are non-obligatory and all obstacles can simply be gone around, making it a run adapted to everyone. Depending on the water lever, a siphon (or “sump”) passage is also possible.
