Activity description

Go on an adventure with Les Intraterrestres by exploring the Roujanel canyon between the Ardèche and the Cévennes!

Between the Monts d'Ardèche Regional Natural Park and the Cevennes, the Roujanel canyon starts in a tight but shallow gorge. Numerous jumps, small and large, and some swimming passages will lead you to the second part, more open. The clear and limpid basins are of a mint blue water, a real treat for the eyes!

This canyoning descent of Roujanel is characteristic of canyons dug in the schist. No experience in canyoning is required to participate, but a good physical condition is necessary to fully enjoy the activity that will keep you busy for the day.

Whether you are in Lozere or in Ardèche, don't hesitate to let yourself be tempted by the canyoning descent of the Roujanel canyon near Villefort!
