The Cévennes is the ideal place to practice outdoor sports. On site, professional instructors can lead your group in several activities.
The Château du Péras is located 8 km from a canyon of easy access on the Gardon River in Saint Jean du Gard. Other, more difficult canyons are also accessible with a guide as well as nearby Via Ferrata climbing.
A large number of mapped hiking trails are available in tourist and hiking guides, ranging from a small half-day walks to more difficult trails starting from the foothills of the Cévennes to the top of the Mont Aigoual passing through several valleys. Some trails, are also accessible on mountain bike. Quiet, little roads run along the valleys where two-wheeled tourists can climb to the summits.
