Description

Discover the catalan canyons and more precisely the Baoussous canyon in Céret in the Eastern-Pyrenees.

Are you looking for a canyoning activity with your family or friends? This one is perfect to initiate you to jumps, abseils, slides and to make a playful trip in beautiful wild gorges lit by the sun throughout the day.

After a short approach walk, you can see the gorges. Arrived at the starting point, you just have to put the suit and equipment on, and let's go!

You progress in the undergrowth and in the river to arrive at your first obstacle, a 5 meters abseil ideal to start well. This is the opportunity to explain to you the method to go down safely. You continue with a short walk in the canyon which brings you to a superb 10 meters abseil. You then arrive at the best part of the route: 6 meter slides and 4 to 5 meter jumps that you can repeat at will.

You continue your adventure with a series of slides of 3 to 5 meters and a small abseil of 6 meters. Finally, you enter a magnificent gorge where you can see a succession of three pools and abseiling slides (17, 6 and 12 meters) to arrive in a beautiful basin. All that's left to do is to change clothes and go back to the cars in 15 minutes of walking.

Departure every day, except Wednesday, during the canyoning season, from the end of June to the beginning of September. Additional session on Thursday afternoon.
