A full-day "vertical" canyon focused on abseiling in the Massif du Canigou will help you develop your climbing skills! The Taurinya canyon is made for sporty people who want to spend a day in a preserved rocky environment. Including abseiling sections up to 45m, jumps up to 6m and walking sections, you will get your share of excitement. Smile because the guide will take pictures with a camera (if available) and will send you those pictures in the days following the activity.

Tour Programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our base in Marquixanes at the booked time. There you can put on your equipment and get to know your group (10 participants maximum).
- Tour:
You can then follow the state-certified guide for a 1.5hrs hike to the canyon followed by a picnic, where the guide will give you a safety demonstration. We will then enter this canyon for 5 exciting hours. The tour will culminate in an impressive 35m waterfall to be abseiled down!
- Arrival:
After this vertical adventure, you can enjoy a good rest as soon as you return to the nautical base, perhaps even by eating at Le Caillou, the restaurant of the base, for an average supplement of €15.

We had an amazing time in the presence of a funny and spectacular guide: Nico who made us want to come back the next day! Thank you to him and the team for allowing us to descend these magnificent and “playful” canyons.
