Canyoning is several activities rolled into one , with a maximum number of thrills!

Canyoning is the rather unique blend of several sports in one activity. Looking at the various aspects, it shares similarities with caving, hiking, mountaineering and even climbing! Canyoning then adds another element to the mix: water.
Canyoning is about mastering the river and having fun in the water
In fact, you can go canyoning in rivers where the current can vary from ‘weak’ to ‘strong’. Make your way along the river and adapt to its many features and characteristics, including waterfalls, ravines, gorges, and more. Canyoning essentially involves using several active methods, such as abseiling, leaps, swimming, siphon crossings, slides, single rope techniques and walking… It’s always a winner with children, who love the slides and jumps that they encounter.
Canyoning is a fabulous and really popular activity!
Whether you are a sportsperson, a thrill-seeker, or enjoying time with family or friends, canyoning offers the chance to try out courses of varying difficulty that can be personally customised to you.

When can you go canyoning in Occitania?

In general – and this is the same for most regions of France – people go canyoning between April and October. To take part in this activity, you will need to wear a helmet (provided by the Bureau des Moniteurs du Gard), a wetsuit and sports shoes. Make your way along the river and discover rich landscapes, surprising waterfalls and an environment typical of the southern region of France where you’re guaranteed to enjoy several changes of scenery!
Canyon of the gorges du Souci (or Soucy)

In the Gardon de Sain-Jean-du-Gard above Anduze, the Canyon des gorges du Souci forms the ideal outing for families and groups of very mixed levels. This is one of the most accessible and fun courses in the Gardon Valley and our instructors will guide you around in complete safety, so each can go at their own pace.

Jumps, swims and slides are on the programme for this outing. The gorges used for this canyoning are less steep and, more importantly, the ‘washing machine’ and ‘siphon’ activities do not have to be completed to continue along the route. But this does not prevent you from jumping up to 9 metres if you are sporty enough!

So where do we leave the activity?

After a 3-minute approach walk, the instructor from the Bureau des Moniteurs du Gard (State graduate) suggests that you go up the river avoiding the main obstacles to access Le Pont du Souci (Old stone bridge built towards the end of the Nineteenth century).

On the descent, several jumps (non-compulsory) mark out the course with progressive heights.
