Infos & Booking


In the heart of the Cévennes mountains, close to Mont Aigoual and the village of Les Rousses, the Tapoul gorges canyon is a concentration of adventure and thrills.

There are numerous jumps of varying heights and technical difficulty. None of the jumps is mandatory, and you'll always be offered a fun alternative to overcome the obstacles. Beautiful waterfalls, natural slides, potholes and a few swimming sections complete the course. The play of light and shade through the chestnut trees and ferns adds a unique atmosphere to this canyon!

For this activity, you need to be able to swim and be in reasonable physical condition.
Remember to bring your swimsuit and sneakers.
The canyoning trip is open to teenagers aged 12 and over.
The shuttle bus fare (4.50€) is included in the price.

You can combine this canyoning trip with the fun Tapoul via ferrata for a full day's activity on site! (Cévennes package: 85€)

If you're interested in other canyoning routes, I also suggest another descent in the Cévennes: the Bramabiau canyon.
