Terréo invites you to get off the beaten track with this aquatic hike nestled in the Tamié valley, at the foot of the Sambuy resort. Far from the crowds, you will enjoy a refreshing and green setting to have a good time as a family with young and old. This course is accessible to all, with only a few small obstacles where water games will be possible. In this valley, walking in the river is pleasant, as are the few slides and jumps possible. The water dug the rock in an astonishing way, creating a recess, with an aspect close to that which can be found in canyoning. Rounded shapes, strata and fossils are visible. The fauna also has its place in this valley with, if the luck smiles on you, the possibility of observing trout, roe deer, fisherman, salamander and other residents of the place. The passage under the old arched bridge is also a pleasant moment where one becomes aware of the work carried out by water for millions of years. You will be accompanied by a canyoning instructor during this outing. Regarding the equipment that will be provided to you, it is similar to that used in canyoning: wetsuit and neoprene socks, helmet and harness. Note that the harness is present to protect against friction on the rock during the slides and will allow the instructor to help you on a passage by holding onto the harness if necessary. Regarding the approach, it consists of a short walk of 5 minutes. The return, lasting around 15 minutes, is on foot via a pleasant path.
