Canyoning and via ferrata courses for all levels
For families and athletes
Do you want to participate in an outdoor activity? We offer a wide range of canyoning and via-ferrata routes to meet all your expectations!
For you, our guides have gone in search of the most beautiful routes in the region. They have selected them for all tastes and all levels. Beginners, sportsmen or confirmed, you will inevitably find the via-ferrata or the descent in canyon which corresponds to you!
Whatever the routes, our state-certified guides offer you group supervision of up to 10 people for better learning. Are you 14? Do not worry, we do not separate you. Two Alteo guides will intervene simultaneously for your safety.
You just have to choose between our 9 canyons and our 4 via-ferrata!
Initiation to canyoning and via ferrata
For children and beginners
With friends or family, we do not always have the same desires or the same skills.
Selecting a route that is too difficult is not conducive to the group's good progress. Thus, for a family composed of 4 people with 2 children between 7 and 15 years of age for example, we suggest more fun and accessible routes in order to fully enjoy the activity in joy and good humor.
Similarly for a first experience, prefer an initiation course. Once your skills have been validated, you can return to perform a higher level activity.
The ideal canyoning course for families: Discover the initiation canyoning course in the ideal Hérault, very aquatic with many jumps, in St Guilhem-Le-Désert.
We also have a canyoning outing for beginners in the Gard at the canyon of Soucy.
On these two activities, all obstacles are avoidable. You can very well bypass them if you do not feel able to face them.
The ideal via-ferrata route for families is the via ferrata of Thaurac.
Canyoning and via ferrata courses for athletes
Go beyond your limits
You are going to perform an activity between confirmed athletes. You will appreciate the multiple series of workshops on the courses by braving the difficulties.
We offer several level courses that you can select according to your desires to perform jumps, slides or abseils.
Each course has its specificity. However, our guides recommend some essential routes:
The canyoning route for athletes: Tapoul Canyoning, the most sporty but also the most exotic. If you are enduring and favorable to the effort, then you will be conquered by the via ferrata of Saint-Sériès or our via ferrata in Lozère.
Communities, works councils
A climbing activity for your children?
Introductory activity for a discovery of climbing or "Acro Roc" course including zip line and monkey bridge for varied pleasures, Alteo guides offer several routes and several climbing spots in the Hérault. We study any request in the neighboring departments!
