Activity description

In summer, come discover the Tapoul canyon in the heart of the Cevennes National Park, 1 hour from the Tarn gorges and 2 hours from Montpellier!

The canyon of Tapoul is located in the town of Rousses, near Mont Aigoual from where it rises. This is a natural aqualand in Lozere, at the gates of the Gard and Herault French departments.

It is a sporty course accessible to all from the age of 10. Its path through the Tapoul Gorge requires you to jump in clear water pools, abseil, slide and cross a beautiful zip line. Supervised by a state-certified instructor, you go through these playful and very aquatic obstacles in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

You meet your guide at 11:45 am in Rousses where you can park your car. You can either have lunch on the spot at the restaurant La Ruche before the departure of the canyon or bring your picnic. After the meal, your instructor gives you the equipment in the parking lot.

Then, a shuttle run by the town takes you to the canyon. You start a thrilling descent of 3 hours. A return walk of only 10 minutes takes you back to the roadside where the shuttle bus awaits you to return to the car park.

Get your adrenaline pumping in a breathtaking setting!
