Description

Discover the Catalan canyons and more precisely the sporty and unique Llech canyon in Prades in the Eastern-Pyrenees.

The canyon of the Llech gorges is one of the most beautiful canyons of the Eastern-Pyrenees, at the foot of the Canigou massif. You will live a session of sporting canyoning, rich in strong sensations.

During the route, you alternate slides on superb and well-watered natural slides and abseiling under waterfalls, perched at a height of tens of meters. You evolve little by little, with moments of walking and swimming in the cool waters of the river.

Then, to test your courage, you will jump from 4 to 8 meters high (not mandatory) to throw yourself into impressive basins, with 7 abseils from 5 to 17 meters, and with slides from 2 to 12 meters long...

Departure every Wednesday and Saturday in July.

  • You must be able to swim and be in good physical condition.
