Tapoul Canyon

Aqualand of the Cevennes

The most beautiful and most cashed of the canyons of Lozère 

Nicknamed “The Aqualand of the Cévennes”

The Tapoul canyon is by far the most magnificent and the most complete. Crystal clear waters, waterfalls, abseils, zip lines, slides, jumps, ... you will discover all of the canyoning techniques.

It is at the heart of the Tapoul gorges, in Lozère, on the Aigoual Massif that it originates. We will meet at the exit of the small town of Rousse, in Lozère and then take the municipal shuttle which will take us to the start of this breathtaking canyon.

After a brief approach, it is a most Edenic canyon which is offered to you. Combining sport, adrenaline and sensations, it will win you over with the multitude of workshops it offers. You can then practice swimming, abseiling techniques, ziplining but also jump in pools and currents.

Course highly recommended for sports enthusiasts of sensation!
