Activity description

Discover the Borne canyon, in the heart of an Ardèche gorge in the Monts d'Ardèche Regional Nature Park, with Les Intraterrestres!

The Borne canyon is a very aquatic and playful canyon that will offer you an unforgettable outdoor experience. Located in the wild gorges of the Borne, it includes walking, twenty or so non-compulsory jumps between 2 and 10 meters, abseiling or zip line descents (depending on the group), swimming in beautiful pools and sliding down natural slides, all in a sumptuous setting.

The Borne canyon runs entirely through the forest and starts at an altitude of 1,100 meters. You will evolve in the Regional Natural Park of the Monts d'Ardèche, and will follow a large marmite (water basin) all along the canyoning course. For this particularly aquatic canyon, you will try to use a mask to pass a siphon (block on immersed rock or rock with a hole in it).

The canyoning courses selected by Les Intraterrestres do not require ropes (except for the abseiling), which makes them very dynamic, with obstacles that follow one another quickly! A pure happiness in clear water to live with your family or friends!
