    • Ossau de l'eau is a specialist and professional canyoning structure in the Ossau valley in Laruns in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Xavier Giraudet, state certified canyoning instructor, will take you to discover the most beautiful canyoning descents in the Ossau valley at the foot of the Béarn Pyrenees. But not only ! It also organizes canyoning weekends and trips in Spain, in Sierra de Guara (Huesca - Alquézar - Rodellar), but also in Ordesa in Mont-Perdu (Torla - Broto - Ainsa). High places of canyoning in Europe!

      The Ossau valley offers a great diversity of canyons, it has about 17 of them, some of which are among the most beautiful in the Pyrenees. Not to mention the canyons located on the other side of the Spanish border in the Tena Valley, which are easily accessible.

      Canyoning is a sport in the great outdoors that takes place in mountain streams. It allows you to discover completely wild and unsuspected places while having fun. Abseiling along the waterfalls, swimming in turquoise water, jumping (optional) in crystalline basins and sliding on natural slides is all this canyoning and much more.

      In the company of your children (from 10 years old), young and old, or with friends, go for an immersion, for a half-day or a day of canyoning!

      So that the descent is a fun and enjoyable moment for all, the vigilance and attention of your canyoning instructor will reassure the most fearful. Xavier will take care to adapt the obstacles and he will pass on his passion and good humor to you, with pleasure and conviviality as a common thread. You will most often be in a small group and the departure times will be adapted so that you can be alone and quiet in the canyons. As far as possible, he will offer you the less frequented routes.

      For optimal thermal comfort, you will be equipped with 2-piece neoprene suits, neoprene slippers and gloves (depending on the season). To protect your head a helmet will be provided and for rope obstacles a harness will be necessary.

      Fill up on emotions and memories!

    I went Canyoning with my 2 children joining 5 very friendly French locals as part of a group. It was a phenomenal experience, highly recommended, made all the more enjoyable by our fantastic guide Marc. The scenery was beautiful but it's the 'joie de vivre' of the people I met that'll I remember.

    We had a fun and very positive experience canyoning with Xavier! Xavier was very professional and provided detailed instructions that helped us getting through the canyon safely while exploring adventures along the way. Our two preteen—aged children really had a blast and they enjoyed exploring the jumps and slides. Highly recommended.

    Had an amazing morning yesterday for 2 of us with Marc, we had to postpone a little due to weather but then they made it fit with us which was great. Marc was so much fun and it was so thrilling, I would recommend this experience to anyone, it's like nothing else I had done before, and we were the only people there so even better!
