In Saint-Martin-Vésubie, only 1h15 from Nice, the Vesúbia Mountain Park will delight all lovers of mountain activities – from beginners to accomplished athletes. Its huge indoor complex will allow you to enjoy the various activities, whatever the weather. I tested a day’s activities in the Vesúbia Mountain Park!
The Vesúbia Mountain Park: 1st indoor canyoning area in Europe!
Just like in a real canyon, you are given suits, helmets and harnesses.
Tunnels, tree trunks, rocks, and fresh water as if it were real: this indoor canyoning space is really amazing! On the program, a rappel under a waterfall and 5-meter jumps, slides and some climbing! In short, enough for a gentle 1h30 introduction. I shared this activity with a family, and it was really great to see young and old having fun together! Children are admitted from the age of 6.
Booking is essential and prices vary from €17 for children to €23 for adults.
The Vesúbia Mountain Park: a fun climbing course!
15 challenges and 21 ascent corridors await you!
Climb a wall of inflatable cylinders, challenge your friends on the “face to face” – two identical walls on a transparent surface – or slip into Super-Mario’s shoes for a few minutes by jumping from pipe to pipe and avoiding the traps. It’s a bit surprising at first when throw yourself off the top of the wall, but you quickly get used to it. Simple and effective!
This fun climbing activity is suitable from the age of 5. Adults will also find plenty of challenges. As far as prices are concerned, the cost of the activity varies from €12 for children under 12 to €15 for adults.
The Vesúbia Mountain Park is also a climbing wall, a swimming pool and caving!
Unique place in Europe for the adventures you’ll experience there!
The Vesúbia Mountain Park is the place for swimming, climbing, jumping, walking high up, descending a canyon, going underground, playing sports or relaxing. The complex offers many other activities too. Climbing enthusiasts will love the 13-metre high climbing wall with its 36 corridors and bouldering room. Those who love tree top adventure courses will be able to try the high course with its 12 challenge elements. The curious will go for the 80-metre caving course. Finally, the swimming pool and relaxation area will allow you to recover after a day of high emotion: are you more of a swimming pool, sauna or Jacuzzi person?

Who hasn’t dreamed of changing lives one day and earning a living doing something you love? Two years ago, I left my job as an engineer to become a photographer, videographer and digital nomad. Living in Nice, I fell under the spell of the Côte d’Azur. This region has made me what I am today: a fulfilled sportsperson that loves and respects nature. I share the beauty of this area and its many sporting possibilities and show you the things that made me fall in love with it!
