Canyoning is a way of moving through watercourses, often gorges or ravines, usually in the mountains. Jumps, slides and rappels of varying heights will be your obstacles of the day, with pools in between. Each canyon is unique, so the level of difficulty and commitment will be specific to each trip and/or itinerary. These can be adapted to suit the age and ability of the participants, so that the fun remains at the heart of the activity.

More than a sport, it's above all a way of discovering an environment that is often inaccessible, exceptional and of wild natural beauty. Discover the long struggle between water and rock over time, confront yourself or relax and enjoy a refreshing and unforgettable experience. Situated at the bottom of the Rouanne valley, this gorge is an excellent starting point for those looking for a degree of flexibility according to their mood and affinity with heights. With abseils, 1 or 2 jumps up to 8m and slides, it offers plenty of opportunities for games and practice, depending on your guide's instructions.

We provide all the thermal and safety equipment you'll need and our qualified guide will be on hand to help you, whether you're looking to challenge yourself, have fun with friends or just enjoy some family time.

Special conditions: The access road to the car park is a dirt track that can be driven for 20-25 minutes, but beware of low-slung vehicles. After being met and kitted out by the guide, the walk to the site takes around 45 minutes, so please consider this depending on your physical condition.

The jumps and abseils can be adapted by the guide to suit your fears and conditions and/or changed to braked abseils. If you have a severe fear of heights, we can suggest alternative locations to make the activity more comfortable.

As canyoning is a weather-sensitive activity (thunderstorms, heavy rain), the activity may be postponed or cancelled if conditions make this necessary for obvious safety reasons.
