What you'll do

After welcoming you to the site and getting to know each other, we will move on to the equipment stage. Once we have our suits and the necessary equipment for canyoning, we can start the approach walk to the canyon entrance.
It is a very easy walk that makes us cross the gorges by the road and gives us time to measure its dizzying depth.
Once inside the canyon, we will start by walking in the river to quickly find the first toboggans and pools of turquoise water. The course allows some jumps, always avoidable if you do not feel it. It will take about 2 hours to do the canyon.
The way back a bit steep but not too long (20 minutes) will take us not far from the hermitage of Galamus it will also be possible to visit after the activity.
Back in the parking lot where we parked we can get back to dry before taking the time to discuss this great experience.

Where you'll be

The gorges of Galamus are between the Catalan country and the Cathar country.
The Agly have dug this impressive canyon and makes its way to the Mediterranean. Two kilometres long and five hundred meters deep, the Galamus Gorge is a magnificent natural curiosity.
To discover them by the practice of the canyoning adds a dimension in the perception that one can make of this site.
