Infos & Booking


Located in Haute-Ariège in the valley of Ax-les-Thermes, the canyon of Mounges is a small discreet canyon with a mountain charm. It is ideal to discover the canyoning activity in the Pyrenees.

This outing will give you the opportunity to learn how to abseil (from 10 to 20 meters high maximum), in the waterfall or out of the water. You will slide in a lying position on small and large natural toboggans, very fun. Finally, you will be able to jump from 3 to 8 meters high, but no worries, all are optional and nothing is mandatory.

This trip is possible from mid-May to mid-October depending on the weather.

Once you have mastered the basic techniques of canyoning, why not try a more challenging trip such as the Artigue canyon?
