Located in the narrow reaches of the Gardon river in Saint-Jean-du-Gard, the canyon of the Soucy gorges welcomes you in an enchanted setting. This fun descent is accessible to all; beginners or advanced, you can enjoy this outdoor activity at your own pace.
The Soucy canyon is particularly suitable for beginners, as all the obstacles can be bypassed. A perfect compromise for those who prefer to go down quietly and without group works.
Are you a thrill-seeker? Choose to slide down natural slides or jump into giant potholes. The course also includes swimming and walking in the river. An excellent combination! These quieter sections will allow you to admire the beauty of the wild and authentic landscapes; you will plunge into the heart of a preserved and lush nature.
Children can venture into this canyon; share a refreshing half-day with family and friends.
Our passionate instructors will guide you through this activity and teach you the art of canyoning. Stay tuned!
Without any difficulty, this descent from the Roman bridge of Soucy combines strong sensations and relaxation. Come and have fun and enjoy the magical environment of the Cévennes!
The participants will first have to try on the suits brought by the instructors at the meeting point. Once everything is validated, everyone will gather in the cars to meet directly at the site and start the descent. The vehicles are parked near the end of the course.
It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the start of the canyon and 15 minutes to return. The descent of the Soucy Gorge takes 3 hours. During these privileged moments, you will alternate between swimming, aquatic hikes, slides, jumps in the pools, abseils, etc.
The finale is a tyro-splash that captivates all participants. Once the descent has been completed, you will return to the vehicles and be able to give the equipment back to the instructors (helmets, harnesses, wetsuits and neoprene socks, waterproof bags and canisters, ropes, descenders and carabiners). Please remember to inform our office team of your height and weight in advance so that the guides can prepare all the equipment needed for the activity.
What should I wear for a canyoning trip? Simply wear a swimming costume, closed-toe trainers and a backpack with water and a snack.
