Escales Canyon


Located at the beginning of the Vicdessos Valley, the Escales Canyon is extremely original and exotic. With its uninterrupted succession of toboggans, it is the most aquatic and fun canyon in the heart of the Ariège jungle. It’s a great way to discover and learn technical canyoning with friends.

Escales Canyon

The canyon of Escales is an atypical race and, because of its technical framing, very little frequented, which makes its descent a privileged and unique experience. The beautiful casing is marked but never deep, the gorge meanders in the shade of a magnificent birch forest. The atmosphere is surreal in good weather when the sun’s rays pierce through the foliage. The obstacles are never very high (15m max) but still very aquatic, the slides are numerous, including the extraordinary Super Slide of 22m. You will receive a detailed teaching on the techniques of displacement but also of team, you will be thus the actors of your own adventure. A sporty canyon descent for all those who love the water and the sensations.
