Activity description

This is a challenging for the sporty people amongst you! The descent of Haut Chassezac takes place in a sunny valley in the middle of beautiful granite cathedrals. Go discover the exceptional erosion of the Gorge!

You can choose between the full version of the canyon with a little more technical sections and requiring a real endurance to reach the end; or its "discovery" version on which you will be introduced to the specific obstacles in canyoning. Both routes are sporty and aquatic.

The groups are small (8 people maximum), for a more intense descent. You will have a chance to do: slides, abseiling, swimming and underpasses... not to mention enjoying the natural environment and wilderness!

The rope passages will be an opportunity to learn the rope techniques to become active in your descent.

All jumps are avoidable, sometimes with an abseil, jumping and heights will depend on the desire and of capacity of each participant.

Integral version: 6 hours in water and 8 hours of activity in all.
Discovery version: 5 hours in water and 7 hours of activity in all.
