Canyon du Diable | Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert | Hérault

You are in the heart of the Herault gorges near Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, one of the most beautiful villages of France. Its limestone landscape, typical of the region, makes it a remarkable site listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Canyon du Diable is one of the closest canyons from Montpellier.


It is an discovery canyon that offers plenty of possibilities. It is accessible from the age of 6. This course is really suitable for everyone because it offers fun workshops such as jumps from 1 to 10 metres, a beautiful zipline ending in the water, a rappel and many other aquatic surprises. And if something scares you, it is optional so you can avoid it. Its aquatic and playful nature allows you to enjoy this descent during a long period of the year. We descend the Hérault river in a beautiful setting.
