Canyon du Tapoul, in Rousses | Lozère and Cévennes
Our favorite of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. 1 hour from Anduze d’Ales and the Tarn gorges, 2 hours north of Montpellier, the Canyon du Tapoul is in the heart of the Cévennes National Park near the Mont Aigoual where it takes its source.
It is a real aqualand in the Lozere departement, really close to the Gard and Herault departments. The water is clear. This sport canyon is accessible to everyone from the age of 10. Its path through the Tapoul gorges leads us to jumps, rappels, slides and a beautiful zipline. Guided by a certified instructor, you will be filled with adrenaline and thrills in an exceptional location.
In order to preserve the environment, this canyon is subject to regulation. It is closed on Mondays and Fridays.
It is possible to do the Via Ferrata in Rousses in the morning at 9:00 and the Canyon du Tapoul in the afternoon at 13:30 for a full day of outdoor activities. The price for these combined activities is 75€ per person (group rate of 70€ per person for 5+ people).

This activity which can be done from the age of 10 is done in the afternoon. The meeting location is in Rousses (48400) on a dedicated car park/lot at 11:45. You can take your lunch with you or eat at the restaurant La Ruche (you need to call in advance). After lunch, we put on all the gear and we take a minibus (managed by the village during July and August) to the start of the canyon. It starts with a 5-minute hike. You are in the canyon for 3 hours of fun guided by a certified instructor. It ends with a 10-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.
