Canyon du Ravin des Arcs, Hérault | Montpellier

Located only 45 minutes from Montpellier near the Pic Saint-Loup and Saint-Martin-de-Londres, you will discover a limestone landscape where the river offers long reaches in a wild nature.


The Canyon du Ravin des Arcs is located 30 km north of Montpellier in the Lamalou gorges. This canyon in the Hérault department resembles a lot of the canyons of the Sierra de Guara (Spain). The water has dug beautiful rock formations to produce many jumps from 1 to 9 meters, slides, a large zipline, a 20-meter rappel/abseil and other beautiful surprises. This canyon evolves in a prestigious and wild place.

The other particularity of this canyon is that it is seasonal. This is what makes it an authentic canyon. It does not flow all year long, especially in the heat of summer and it is regulated (not accessible between February and June). It is ideal to discover it in fall.


This activity which can be done from the age of 8 is done either in the morning at 9:00 or in the afternoon at 14:30. The meeting location is in Saint-Martin-de-Londres at the Boulangerie Pâtisserie (bakery) La Tour. It starts with a 20-minute hike and then you are in the canyon for 3 hours of fun guided by a certified instructor. It ends with a 30-minute hike.

All the technical gear is brought and lent by the guide. We will ask you to give us the height and weight of each participant to pick a neoprene suit adapted to your morphology. Each participant needs to bring a swimsuit, a towel, a pair of sneakers/trainers and a bottle of water.

We accept payments in cash, cheques-vacances and cheques but NO credit cards.
