About
At my place, you will be welcomed as a "trainee" and not "clients". Your comfort and pleasure are at the center of my attention. You will receive a mini-training to learn on your own and live your own adventure. Of course I will accompany you, technically, but also psychologically ... and you will surpass yourself gently. This is why I have selected the best canyoning equipment for you and provided you with shoes specially adapted to the activity. It is also with this in mind that my groups never exceed more than 8 people and that I take the time to welcome you to my canyoning center and not quickly in a parking lot. Why me ? I have been a professional for 30 years (State graduate DEJEPS Canyon, Caving, Climbing), explorer of the largest Himalayan canyons and international trainer. Accompanied by our professional canyon photographer, YOU are therefore guaranteed to live a unique experience! Rod

      Wonderful experience in the Artigue canyon
      I went to the Artigue canyon with my mother and it was a wonderful experience. Our group was small, Rodolph, our guide was wonderful and the view from the canyon was stunning . I would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys spending time outside and isn’t afraid to get a little wet 😉

      Some unforgettable memories!
      Great experience with firstly caving in Saurat, and then canyoning in La Freyte - both not listed here, but available on their website. Very friendly, relaxed guides (we were with Antoine and Elsa - both brilliant) - professional and experienced, so we felt very safe at all times. Also great equipment, really making the difference on the trip. They were also very open to accommodate our children, making some unforgettable memories for them. Can really recommend La Freyte - beautiful river and waterfalls.

      Did a couple of canyons with them and every time it was above expectations... Rodolphe is an excellent guide who knows his canyons and will always do his best to give you the most exciting experience. I definitely can recommend this Canyon center!!

      safe and thrilling canyoning
      Spent a wonderful day with Rod and Arthur experiencing the heart of the Haut Ariege. From the start it was clear that we were in the best possible hands, Rudolph is a consummate professional at the top of his game. With his good English and comfortable, assured manner he enabled us to enjoy the thrills of a magnificent canyon descent in complete confidence and safety. A briefing with coffee and debriefing with beer helped the group mesh and maximise the experience, Rod made sure everyone understood and was comfortable with the techniques involved in the descent. Big smiles all round! It has to be said the Artigue canyon is spectacularly beautiful, lovely rock formation and vegetation and being relatively open one can still see the peaks from the canyon. A fantastic day out!

      Canyoning with soul
      Me and my dad did Artigue canyon with rod and a lovely German family this summer, and it was the highlight of my entire three week holiday, so much so that I've created this account just to do this review. We were told to arrive at 9 for a briefing, and although we arrived a little late (Sorry Rodolphe!) we were welcomed with an easy familiarity that really put me at ease, especially since the briefing was done in a relaxed fashion with some coffee and a sit down and some jokes. It bred a sense of camaraderie between us and the other family who were their also, so it seemed we were going up as friends rather than separate clients. When it came to the canyoning itself, something I've never done before and was a little scared of, I couldn't recommend it more. Honestly, I'm a little afraid of heights but they way Rod and Arthur run around with the confidence of mountain goats makes you feel safe, and the instruction are clear and precise so you were always confident in what you were doing. Really, it'd be hard to encapsulate all of the good aspects of my time in the canyon with Rod in one small review, so I recommend you go out and find out for yourself how good this is.

      Great canyoning experience!
      Had a great canyoning experience in the Pyrenees with the most fantastic people! The guides, activities and scenes are equally as awesome! I felt safe and well informed all the time. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and professional. It was obvious from the outset that they hoped to give us the best time and that they did! You are guaranteed a day very well spent!

      Fantastic canyoning, super reliable
      We (family of 6) had an amazing canyoning experience with Rodolphe. Beautiful surroundings and exciting and fun! Rodolphe is very experienced, skilled and internationally accretited (ICO). Together with his excellent English, this leads to a very comfortable and safe feeling. The welcome was very hospitable. Also, after the trip we had a very nice and enyoing 'debriefing'. So, we highly recommend Rodolphe!

      Amazing canyoning experience
      Truly professional team ! Amazing center providing everything you need for an amazing Canyoning day in the area :) The instructor and the assistant where professionals they are teaching canyoning and you don’t just go inside a Canyon without knowing and understanding what is happening.... they were always explaining to us what is happening how will go on and why .... I have also to say that we passed 3 other canyoning teams not because we were fast but because they weren’t professionals ! Thank you guys for the amazing experience !!!

      A thriling adventure
      A great afternoon with Rod who tailored the programme to fit an 11 and 13 year old plus their dad over forty years their senior. Thoroughly recommended for a Rod's hospitality, professionalism, equipment and enthusiasm for the sport. We will be back!

      Fantastic family trip
      We are a family of four, 11, 16 year old children, myself and my wife. We were so glad we decided to Canyon with Rod. He is clearly not only proficient but a leader in this sport. Extremely patient and thorough, we felt safe and cared for the whole time. I truly appreciated how Rod matched our confidence level and experience to the right canyon. The pictures taken of us although optional were a great value, we got some great shots of all of us and of my son doing his Spider-Man impressions :-)!! In terms of preparation for your trip, just bring swim wear and a towel, Rod has everything else! The gear Is great quality and condition. Rod is humble about his English but we thought it was excellent! Highly recommended trip, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

      Top notch!
      I recently had the pleasure to visit Speleo Canyon at the beginning of September. To start of the organisation from the canyoning its self through to the accommodation that Rod had arranged was above and beyond what had been expected. We explored 6 canyons over 8 days and throughout that time myself and the whole team felt that we were in good hands. Each canyon that was selected was appropriate for the level of all which made the experience all the better. A special mention has to be made for Arthur, who accompanied us on our trips and also rustled up some of the best food I've every eaten for our lunches daily. A real great experience if you find your self in the stunning Pyrenees and are seeking some adventure.

      Awesome Canyoning Trip
      Great trip with a friend whilst visiting in the Pyrenees. Action filled day with Rodolphe who takes care of everyone on the trip. The trip was more of a training course and Rodolphe was helpful enough to explain as much or as little as you'd like. Will definitely be back again if I am in the Pyrenees. Tip: If you have a GoPro take it along with you. Rodolphe has helmets with the GoPro helmet mounts for you to snap in your camera.

    We (2 families with teens) can highly recommend canyoning with Rod and Arthur! They are both experienced guides with a personal touch and great hospitality. And Arthur takes great pictures. It was a great and unforgettable experience. Thank you Rod and Arthur!

    Excellent in every way - Rodolph was a great guide with excellent English; the kit was very new and the experience as a whole was really enjoyable. The canyon was challenging but fun and the valley beautiful.

    We were so looking forward to this and booked it on line. As I packed the car to drive there I saw a message sent the night before saying it was cancelled. No further explanation. The money was refunded - as I booked through Trip Advisor - but what a disappointment for the 2 kids and parents!
