Activity description

Accompanied by EXTREME CTP instructors, the Galamus canyon is ideal for discovering the sensations of canyoning!

Canyoning is evolving in the bed of a river by passing through gorges or narrow ravines. The canyons have waterfalls of different heights that can be crossed in different ways: toboggan, jump or abseil down . The progression between the different waterfalls is done on foot but also by swimming in pools of different depths. There are few activities as varied as canyoning!

This "aquatic hike" is situated on the spectacular site of the Gorges de Galamus in the commune of St Paul de Fenouillet in the Pyrénées Orientales. You will discover a preserved environment and spectacular scenery.

Perfectly adapted for a first experience in canyoning, this outing allows a first approach without being forced to go high as all slides and jumps are optional. The hike is made up of several basins, pots, slides and easy jumps, only if you feel comfortable trying them. All this always in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere!

The descent of the Galamus Canyon is an ideal activity to live and share with your family and friends.

Accessible to all from 6 years old and provided you know how to swim of course!
