Infos & Booking


I invite you to explore the Albès canyon, one of the most beautiful and wildest in the upper Languedoc.

Right from the start, you're immersed in the atmosphere of the Caroux National Park. After an uphill approach walk, you reach the resurgence of the Albès pillar. Here, water gushes out at the foot of a 100-metre-high cliff. This marks the start of the canyoning descent.

Then it's off for a succession of 4 abseils, each one different from the next, up to 35 meters high. Ideal for perfecting your abseiling technique, this canyon is reserved for the more experienced and sporty.

The rest of the canyoning descent takes place under the woods, with a number of slides and jumps in beautiful, crystal-clear pools. There aren't many jumping spots, but you can do them again and again if you want to work on your technique.

In short, the Albès waterfalls canyon is a very complete canyoning trip. All you need is to be physically fit to enjoy these idyllic landscapes.

The activity is open to teenagers aged 14 and over.

For other aquatic and sporting adventures in the region, you can follow me to the Rec Grand canyon, still in the Caroux, or a little further afield, for a canyoning session in the Gorges du Diable in Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert.
