Canyon du Saint Vincent | Languedoc-Roussillon

Enjoy a sporting day rich in emotions and thrills. The canyon of Saint Vincent is certainly one of the most beautiful of the Pyrenees and the Occitanie region. You will start at the summit slopes to finish your descent near the English waterfalls in Vernet les Bains.

Presentation

Probably the longest and most demanding canyon in the Canigou and Languedoc-Roussillon. 47 rappels are waiting for you in this canyon. It is accessible from the age of 16 and is intended for people in very good physical condition. The approach walk takes about 3 hours and gives the tempo. But what a view on the Pyrenees! The water is crystal clear and fresh. The canyon starts at a high altitude of 1600m on very beautiful granite slabs and continues to a descent of more than 3 kilometers. A 75m rappel awaits you in the meanders of the canyon. Adventure guaranteed!

Organisation

This activity which can be done from the age of 16 lasts all day long. The meeting location is in Vernet les Bains at 7:00 in front of the office de tourisme. It starts with a 3-hour hike and then you are in the canyon for 7 hours of fun guided by a certified instructor. It ends with a 1-hour 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, a vest, a bottle of water, snacks and lunch.

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