[Rope Canyoning]

Descend a mountain river by different means, each one as fun as the other: natural slides, swimming, jumps, slides, abseiling, zip lines...


Tapoul Canyon

Ready to go in the pearl of the Cevennes? The Tapoul canyon is a combination of jumps, natural slides, white water swimming and abseiling at the foot of Mont Aigoual!

The equipment is done in the village of Rousses in Lozère, then a bus will take us to the start of the canyon (mandatory in high season)

+ info

After a 5-minute approach walk, we enter the Tapoul canyon.

The various obstacles follow each other in quick succession. This is an opportunity to learn the basics of canyon jumping techniques: impulse, precision, and cushioning.

Then the obligatory abseils (from 2 m to 10 m) follow one another progressively, alternating with small swims and various jumps that can reach 10 m!

At the end of the course, you will find an optional 25-metre zip line with a very wet finish!

Once the Tapoul canyon course is finished, you start a 10 minutes’ walk back, while still enjoying the nature of the Cevennes National Park which will have offered you a very refreshing canyoning experience!
