The mini-descent canyoning in the Besorgues valley in Ardèche is a great introduction to canyoning, perfect for beginners!
The Base Canyon de la Besorgues invites you to try canyoning in the canyoning course of the Besorgues, only 5 minutes walk from the base. If you are near Aubenas or Privas in Ardèche and you are interested in canyoning, don't hesitate to join the base in Labastigue-sur-Bésorgues!
The course will make you cross a first zip line of 120 meters, then a second of 35 meters. Then, two very aquatic slides will be waiting for you, as well as a jump, a little walk, a small "caving" narrowness if you are daring, and you will finally arrive at the highlight of this mini descent: the biggest canyon slide in Ardèche with a length of 12 meters!
To allow you to cross the last waterfall of the course, the Base Canyon has extended the natural slide by a half-tube of 6 meters suspended from a zip line. Guaranteed effect at the end, with a jump in a 3 meters waterfall! Many jumps are possible in this last basin, including one of 5 meters, then a small walk of 3 minutes to make you reach the start of the not obligatory return zip line of 90 meters long and 40 meters high.
For a first canyoning trip, this mini descent in the Besorgues valley will offer you great sensations that will make you want to do it again very soon!
