Canyon du Salhens | Languedoc-Roussillon

The Salhens canyon is the ultimate sports canyon on the Caroux mountains. You will discover all the facets of canyoning: jumps, rappels and slides. A busy day to share with athletic friends and nature lovers.


The Canyon du Sahlens is located on the Caroux mountains, on the western part of the Cevennes. It’s one of the longest canyons. It evolves in a wild and playful environment. It is technical with many rappels from 4 to 30m, some slides up to 5m and jumps not necessarily high but technical. It is ideal to do it during spring or fall. This adventure canyon is accessible from the age of 14 for people in good physical condition.


This activity which can be done from the age of 14 lasts all day long. The meeting location is in Olargues at 8:30. It starts with a 1-hour hike and then you are in the canyon for 6 to 7 hours of fun guided by a certified instructor. It ends with a 20-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, a vest, a bottle of water, snacks and lunch.

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