Quillan Partly Cloudy 11°C
Through the Gorges de Pierre Lys and Gorges de Saint Georges, 12 km of fast-flowing river offers you an ideal place for a wide range of activities such as rafting, kayaking, canoeing, riverboarding and tubing!
Discover the Gorges in the Aude!
This is a rafting course like no other in the Pyrenees. Memorable rapids such as the "Triple Chute", the "Flippeurs" and the "Dessert" have made this stretch famous. The river is navigable every day from the beginning of May until the end of August (natural streams and waterfalls).
Canoeing and kayaking
At the end of the gorges, the Aude quietens down and from Quillan to Limoux, there is 25 km of calm water, ideal for canoeing or kayaking.
The Slalom Run
For river-running enthusiasts, a 600m slalom run has been created in the heart of Quillan, with an exciting wave, to practise your freestyle. This spot is perfect for kayaking, playboating and canoeing!
There is a whole variety of opportunities in Cathar Country for canyoning in the gorges de Galamus and the canyon de Termes. All the routes are beautiful and offer a number of exciting jumps. A little further on, the canyon du Yek has something to satisfy both the experienced canyoner and those looking for thrills, including abseiling under a waterfall and impressive jumps.
