How to choose the ideal canyoning trip?

Some characteristics of canyoning

Criterion 1: The different ages of the group

The various outings that we offer are accessible to children from the age of 6/7 (excluding Tapoul). In addition, each course contains special features which will allow you to make your choice according to your wishes.

As a family, you prefer water hiking, which is more accessible and fun than canyoning but whose techniques are similar. Jumps, abseils, zip lines, passages under siphons, whitewater swimming await you.

Among friends, you prefer according to your temperaments the course including multiple jumps.

To make your choice, do not hesitate to consult our activity pages containing more details and call us for more details.

Criterion 3: Location

The summer heat is sometimes excessive, we have made sure to select a multitude of routes in the Occitania region so as not to impose too long journey times.
