Canyoning in the Dordogne valley

From beginners to advanced, come canyoning exclusively in Corrèze and in the heart of the Dordogne valley .

Escapade Nature Pays d’Argentat is the only organization offering canyoning activities in the area. During the activity, we’ll be together and discover some of the wildest places in Corrèze. The canyons of the Dordogne valley are located within a 30-minute drive from Argentat. In exceptional and wild environments, the canyons of Corrèze are true natural oases. We’ll be constantly surrounded by lush greenery, typical of Corrèze. Canyoning in the Dordogne valley, with thick moss decorations and constant contact with oak, beech, chestnut, or beech forests, makes it possible to see all kinds of wild animals, starting with crayfish!
