Hiking & Abseiling of the Verdus, Hérault | Languedoc-Roussillon

Enjoy the adventure of hiking and abseiling the Verdus with rappels between 8 and 30 metres.


This activity is located in Saint-Guilhem-le-désert, one of the most beautiful villages in France, next to the Hérault river and only 35 minutes from Montpellier. It starts with a very nice hike to the cirque de l’Infernet on the path to St Jacques de Compostelle. You will then see a unique landscape with 180m high cliffs and the vegetation of the south. The descent starts in a dry canyon with an 8m rappel to warm up. You then climb down multiple times before arriving at the big rappels up to 30 metres. Anyone can do it above the age of 10 years old. Enjoy the journey with your close ones.


The activity lasts 4 hours. The meeting location is at 10:00 at the bus stop of the grotte de Clamouse (clamouse cave) near Le Pont du Diable between Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert and Saint-Jean-de-Fos.

As soon as the group is complete, the gear is handed out and safety instructions are given to you by a certified instructor. We then walk for 45 minutes to the start of the route and for 20 minutes on our way back at the end.

Each participant needs to bring a bottle of water, something to eat for lunch and snacks, a pair of sneakers/trainers, sunglasses and sunscreen, a vest and a small backpack.

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