Infos & Booking


Located in Saint-Martin-de-Londres, the "ravin des Arc" is well known to hikers. It's a small meander carved out by the Lamalou river in the pine forest, close to Montpellier.

When the conditions are good, canyoning down the "ravin des Arcs" is an exceptional experience. You'll find a bit of technique with an abseil and a rapid to overcome, as well as some fun with several possible jumps ranging from 2 to 10 meters high.

The scenery is grandiose as the water fills the entire canyon, and there are even plenty of caves to visit.

The highlight is an abseil under the natural arch: guaranteed thrills and lots of fun. For outdoor activities in the Hérault region, this is a great change of scenery despite its proximity to Montpellier.

Come as a group or as a family to discover this incredible place, but you'll have to wait for exceptional conditions to allow the outing to run smoothly.
The activity is open to children aged 10 and over.
