Introduction

Roujanel Canyon | Lozère

Perfect for discovering the canyoning activity, the Roujanel Canyon is a very beautiful and uncrowded course and with an accessible level to all.
Very deep in the upper part, there is no obstacle on the rope, it is exclusively punctuated with jumps (never obligatory, from 2 to 9 meters), slides, siphons (not obligatory) and swimming in large natural swimming pools.
Because of its drying out during the summer season, it is only practiced in spring or after heavy rainfall.
Located on the border between Ardèche and Lozère, in a wonderful natural environment, this canyon will let you live a magical day, feasting with emotions and sensations.

Gear

Gear to bring

In order to guarantee maximum comfort during your outing, it is important to come equipped adequately. For that, you must bring:

  • A swimsuit. Preferably clamped to the body in order to avoid creases in the combination, which may be uncomfortable during the descent. Please note that the access and return steps are made in swimsuit. For the most bashful of us, you can come with small shorts that you will put in the bag or into the can.
  • Closed shoes that can hold the foot (like sneakers or hiking shoes). We advise not to come with water (or canoe) shoes because usualy they are not very solid and they do not hold the foot. As one feels always more comfortable in his/her own sneakers, we do not provide shoes for the canyon.
  • A plastic water bottle or a strong water bottle of at least one ½ liter for two people. Even if the canyon is practiced in water, it is necessary to drink !
  • A lanyard for the eyeglasses (sunglasses are useless in the canyon).
  • Energy bars, to avoid small hungers.
  • A SOLID picnic! Avoid tomatoes, peaches, yoghurt, … The cans carrying meals are often thrown from the waterfalls and fragile things may not appreciate / survive.
  • Avoid sunscreen. It is useless in the canyon because we wear an integral combination, and sunscreen pollutes the water of the river.
  • Camera. If you bring your own camera, you are solely responsible for it. We can not be held responsible for any loss or break.

Provided gear
