Canyon du Vialais

Discovery of the Héric Gorges in canyoning

The essential route for jumpers

Near his colleague Rec Grand

On the Caroux Massif, the Vialais canyon is located 90 km west of Montpellier, around Mons-La-Trivalle.

Equally protected, you will plunge into a wild universe with crystal clear waters and breathtaking views.

Complementary to the Rec Grand Canyon renowned for its multiple natural slides, these are dizzying jumps that await you.

Jumps: yes but not only!

If the obvious peculiarity of this course of canyoning in Hérault is the multitude of jumps it offers, the Gorges of Heric have other undeniable advantages.

You will therefore need to be in good physical condition to overcome the various difficulties of this course and overcome the various obstacles by jumping, but also by sliding along natural slides and performing a beautiful 20-meter abseil.

With a variety of fun and technical workshops, this promises a half-day full of learning.

Course also proposed for the day for the most motivated!
