Photo report on the raptors of Sierra de Guara by Sam
The FONDO AMIGOS DEL BUITRE association in Santa Cilia offers small ornithological excursions to observe the large raptors of Sierra de Guara. Manuel made us discover his passion for these little-known birds of prey and yet first inhabitants of the cliffs of Guara. In addition to the famous Griffon Vultures, we were also able to see an Egyptian Egyptian Vulture, a Black Vulture and a Bearded Vulture!!

Canyons for spring!
When the summer classics are impracticable due to water levels, nothing better to discover the star canyons of spring:
Discoveries & sensations in the fabulous FORMIGA: intense and very playful descent of this canyon in a gorge of conglomerate. This classic is all the more interesting in the spring because its slightly stronger than usual flow gives a sensational and sporty side to this canyon. The slides become almost ejectable and the waterfalls are more impressive. In short, re-discover the Formiga!
Adventures & endurance in the mythical MASCUN: take the path of the canyoning pioneers who ascended the canyon more than 45 years ago. This time, we will just go down it, from perched basins to suspended basins, discovering landscapes each more magical than the next. Lots of rappels, a few technical jumps and above all very long, the Mascun offers an unforgettable outing, tailored for an expert canyoning audience.
Official opening LE SENS DE L’EAU 2022
Ready, Set ….
We open the canyoning antenna this Wednesday, April 20. Already many groups have booked their outing! Do not hesitate any longer, contact us to organize your next stay in Sierra de Guara!

TF1 in Sierra de Guara with Le Sens de l’Eau
Report broadcast on Monday 23 August on the Sierra de Guara region, in partnership with LE SENS DE L’EAU (for the “canyoning” part).
DÉSIR D’EAU, a new video “The Meaning of Water”
Season 2021 : let’s go !
Back to basics …
After a few bends, the landscape changes. Slowly, the road climbs and winds along the spine of the Barranco Fondo pass, direction: Les gorges du Mascun. Suddenly, the village appears. Rodellar, perched on its hill at the end of the road, is a gateway to nature. The vehicle stops, body and mind begin their journey.
We are preparing the canyoning equipment, we will need a neoprene suit, a helmet, a harness and fresh envy. This is how one of the first groups of the season arrives. They made the trip from Bordeaux and are happy to finally be able to stretch their legs on the winding paths of the Sierra de Guara. They are lucky, the weather is perfect, the water is crystal clear and there aren’t many people in the canyons.
We, the instructors, are happy !! Because we know that chemistry will take, that the Sierra de Guara never misses an appointment and that it always surprises, even when we know it by heart. We are happy to do our job as best we can, we are happy to see you soon by our side to admire the beauty of this powerful and incredible nature.
Discover le “Petit Mascun”
Happy new year 2021 !!!
The Mascun with Caroline Minvielle
We descended the MASCUN Supérieur at the beginning of July 2020 in tribute to Pierre MINVIELLE: Recognized speleologist and first explorer of the most impressive canyons of Sierra de Guara, Pierre MINVIELLE is one of the pioneers of our activity. I was often inspired by his writings full of poetry, especially in his book “The Forgotten Sierra”. True lover of these mysterious gorges and the inhabitants of remote villages, he made the first epic ascents of the Rio Vero or the Mascun Superior.
In tribute to her work, we accompanied her daughter Caroline MINVIELLE in this legendary canyon that she had never crossed …
Thanks to her .. Thanks to Max for handling the strings !!!

An “à la carte” canyoning product, where you will be alone with your guide, to fully enjoy with family or lovers the natural wonders of the Sierra de Guara. The “prestige canyon” option allows us to design a service that is closer and more selective than a conventional reservation.
