Description

Join me for a full day at the Miraval canyon, a fun day of swimming and exciting jumps! The Miraval canyon is located near Saint-Lary, in the Spanish Pyrenees. 

In my opinion it is one of the most fun canyon options in the region, due to the many and varied jumps. Plus, the scenery is just stunning!

The Yaga river is located some 20 minutes past the border between France and Spain. Descending from Mont Perdu, the waters are clear and beautifully bluish.

We will start with a 15 minute walk downhill to reach the water. At this point the area is still quite open. The progression is easy, punctuated by several jumps. Then we will get to the first narrow sections: the “estrechos”. With one hand on each wall, we will progress swimming and walking.

As we advance, the walls will rise around us, growing until we find ourselves at the end of a one meter wide corridor, with walls of hundreds of meters. After a break for a small picnic we will continue our descent, around 4 more hours in the water. The second “Estrecho” is even more impressive than the first!

The canyon ends with the pool area, offering jumps up to 8 meters (optional of course). And finally we have to walk about 20 minutes to return to the parking. This is a mainly aquatic canyon, and there will be a lot of swimming. In particular, the narrow sections are extremely beautiful.

Interested in this canyoning day in beautiful Miraval? Then request to book this trip and I will see you soon!

This canyon is not particularly difficult. But if you are looking for something easy in the area, check out this other option near Saint-Lary.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
