The Tapoul Gorges

The Tapoul Canyon is unavoidable.

The Tapoul is a great trail, playful and aquatic, based in the heart of the National Parc of Cévennes, close to Aigoual hill.

This Canyon is considered as the pearl of Cévennes ! 

It’s playful and sporty. Indeed, it offers a succession of jumps, waterfalls, slides, giants tyrollean, in a fresh and translucent water. You will enjoy the learning of abseiling in a granite frame.

Great for an excursion with friends, bachelor of bachelorette party. Guaranteed feelings !
