The Tapoul canyoning in the Cévennes

Description Canyoning : Canyon of Tapoul

Wicked and varied, the canyon of the “Tapoul” includes numerous jumps and slides.

But do not worry, all obstacles can be prevented, and everyone can fully enjoy this wonderful descent, jumping into natural pools of clear blue water, or going down streams, all that in total safety!

Lasting for 3 hours, the descent is a chain of waterfalls and pools of water. Jumps are majestic, and the water pleasantly refreshing during the summer months!

Please note: Provide an additional 3 € per person to pay for the compulsory shuttle that takes you from the village of “Rousses” to the canyon.

This shuttle trip is a municipal measure in order to preserve the fragile environment of the departure at the canyon.

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!
