Canyon du Diable in the gorges of Herault

Description Canyoning : Canyon du Diable - Partie basse

Our most popular and fun outing ! It is intended for those who seek to practice canyoning without the fuss, having fun whatever their sporting level.
Indeed, the approach and return walks are very short, and the route offers multiple workshops, all of which can be avoided if you do not wish to do them.

After a proper briefing, we will set off to discover the narrowest part of Hérault's gorges, taking advantage of abseiling, splash tyrolean, numerous jumps, and whitewater swimming.
You will discover the strange environment in which we will practice, and contemplate the tortuous mineral landscape of the gorges, its vegetable banks, and its tuff waterfalls.
Our route will end in the superb reach below the Clamouse's cave.

The constant flow of this part allows you to enjoy it throughout the summer, and the ideal water temperature allows you to enjoy this half-day of sporting leisure without suffering the cold that can
happen in the other canyons.



When the shuttle is not yet in place, a few minutes are enough to access the canyon. From mid-July, the partnership with the community of communes Vallée de l'Hérault has enabled us to set up a shuttle that will take us directly to the start of the course. No worries, the "Office des moniteurs du Languedoc" covers the cost of transporting the shuttle, all you have to do is enjoy !

No problem either to find a parking space during this busy period : A car park is available to us, from where the air-conditioned shuttle will leave.



This course is at the same time a real initiation to canyoning, and a fabulous thrilling canyon : All the workshops have been designed with the aim of enjoying the descent whatever its level.
You can indeed choose to jump from the highest promontories, or stay in the water to watch your most daring friends.

Due to its accessibility (close to Montpellier, and Vias by the A75), this outing will allow you to stay the rest of the day to enjoy the surrounding areas:
Visit the listed village of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, swim under the devil's bridge, discover the potters of Saint-Jean-de-Fos, visit Clamouse's cave or enjoy a getaway on Salagou's lake and its ruffes.

Test this descent, you will love it!

Canyoning in general

Canyoning is a leisure sporting activity. Going down rivers, and overcoming obstacles it offers, one must be equipped with a wetsuit and sneakers. Jumping, sliding, diving, swimming, abseiling ... and musing over the meandering water courses are ingredients for an outing rich in excitements.

The courses we offer are the most uncharacteristic of Languedoc: through thousands of years, the waters of the torrents have gushed and dug into the rocks to form the rivers which became our playground: water slides, pools of blue water, jumps, stunts, and abseils!

The canyons, being more technical, the use of ropes is necessary, particularly while abseiling or diving in the majestic basins of limpid water.

But rest assured, the diversity of the canyons of the region allows us to offer you trips tailored to your desires: aquatic hikes in the meanders of Soucy, with the highest jumps of the Tapoul, passing through the beautiful landscapes of the canyons of the Caroux, as well as the “Albès” with its spirit of adventure or the Vialais and its stunning jumps.

Canyons offered are spread all over the department of “Hérault”: you will certainly find one that suits you, whether you live in Montpellier, at the seaside or Béziers.

As a family or between friends, canyoning will assure you a day of fun!
