Winter canyoning allows you to enjoy your favourite pastime in the middle of winter in the canyons you travelled in the summer. The descent is made wearing wet suits and wetsuits to protect you from the cold.
The preferred canyons are those in the mid-mountain areas (Ossau valley, Valentin valley, Basque country).
Two types of course :
- an introductory descent (the free'ze tribe) where we explore the cold-water canyons of the valley 
- a sporting descent, where you need to have already done abseiling in a canyon.

Abseiling, jumping, swimming in natural pools and toboggans are all part of the experience, in a wild universe where silence and nature offer a timeless experience. Some of the canyons are covered in snow and ice.
You will plunge into water without getting wet and without feeling the cold outside. 

Organisation : 

You meet your canyoning instructor in Laruns.
2h to 2h30 of activity through gorges and streams. 

To take part in this activity, you need to be able to swim, be in good physical condition and be aged 16.
