Infos & Booking


Located in the Haute-Garonne department, not far from the Spanish border, the Arlos canyon is perfect for your children to discover canyoning but also for you, parents, and the whole family!

Indeed, from 5 years old, your children will be able to enjoy an exceptional moment in the water and to apprehend the canyoning in full safety. In the heart of the Pyrenees, the course takes place in a magnificent forest environment. After a succession of natural slides, you will discover beautiful basins and then three waterfalls beautifully sculpted in the rock by the river over thousands of years.

More precisely, many toboggans (up to 4 meters), a zip line, jumps (1.50 meter maximum), walking in the river and a small abseil (5 meters) are on the program of this fun and aquatic descent. But don't worry, nothing is mandatory! All the obstacles can be adapted according to the desires and the level of each person.

If you want to improve your skills, I recommend this canyoning course in the Sierra de Guara on the other side of the Pyrenees.

This can enable you to enjoy some magnificent, slightly more athletic routes, such as the nearby Neste d'Oô canyon, or the Miraval canyon, the beautiful Viu de Llevata canyon and Barrosa canyon in Spain?
