Perched on the slopes of the Causse Sauveterre, the Saint-Marcellin canyon will take you on a succession of progressive abseils, in a breathtaking setting, to lead you to the old troglodytic village of Saint-Marcellin where you can admire the Tarn gorges from a height of almost 400 metres.
This activity is only available for groups in springand autumn.
Reminder: The canyon ends with a high abseil, so it is essential that you are not prone to vertigo to sign up for this activity.
DESCRIPTION DRY CANYON IN THE GORGES DU TARN
You will meet your instructor directly in the village of Liaucous.
Briefing by the instructor on the abseiling technique and practice at your own pace before starting the descent.
Then the course begins with a succession of small easy abseils, the height of which does not exceed 8 metres. You will be permanently backed up by your instructor with an additional rope, so there is no risk of slipping or dropping the rope.
After training on these first descents, the canyon opens up and a breathtaking panorama is offered to you where you can admire the gorges of the Tarn at a height of nearly 400 metres.
Then it's time for the adrenaline to kick in as you cross a very aerial zip line which leads to the start of the final abseiling section of the descent. However, there is a possibility of bypassing it in a few minutes by a parallel path which joins the rest of the course.
Finally you will reach the final abseil, the highlight of the show! 50 metres of spider wire descent in the heart of an exceptional landscape!
Then, after a final crossing without rope, you will leave the canyon to reach the hiking trail that leads in a few minutes to the troglodytic village of Saint-Marcellin, which you can then visit at your own pace.
The site is incredibly beautiful and the view of the river below and the Tarn gorges adds an unforgettable visual to this idyllic setting.
