Family canyoning are canyon hikes suited to children from the age of 7.
These canyons include all the elements of canyoning except that the jumps are never mandatory. Knowing how to swim is mandatory for obvious safety reasons but also for the children to fully enjoy this activity. The level of the canyoning is adapted to the children's pace. These descents will also be really fun for the parents who wish to discover the island and to enjoy swimming in the wild mountain streams of the island.

This cayoning takes place every day during the summer (July, August) and is open from mid-June to September.
It's better if you have shoes with rubber soles and that protect your ankles.
You will be walking in the river bed, the pebbles are slippery and the stones can be covered with lichen.
Be careful: the water shoes (such as "jelly shoes") are adapted to the beach but not to the mountain because they don't hold the ankles properly and their sole is not thick enough to walk in the mountains.
The "city shoes" type Converse, Bensimon, etc, that have slippery soles are not advised either.
