RICARIC - Canyoning, rock climbing and lava tunnels in Reunion Island

Enlarge the map


In a pristine natural environment, rock slides, waterfalls, gorges, pools and rivers of Reunion are all fantastic playing fields for canyoning enthusiasts that allow sliding, abseiling, jumping in a sublime and unforgettable verdant Nature.

Our State graduated and experienced insider guides know these locations thoroughly and will take beginners or seasoned practitioners in the more or less sporting yet ever fun canyons island for half day or day adventures in the mythical canyons of Reunion.

Ricaric will lend you the right equipment (5mm wetsuits with hood + protective gear + neoprene shirt and socks in austral winter) but it is for you to provide sports clothes, sports shoes, picnic, bottle of water, change of clothes, and a Civil
Liability insurance with bodily injury coverage.

Ricaric offers about twenty canyons of various levels of difficulty throughout the island, from the most accessible to the most impressive.

From 10 years old!

Lava tunnels

The Piton de la Fournaise is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Access to incandescent gerbes of an eruption has become very difficult, if not impossible.
Lava flows are discharged into the enclosed part of the volcano in the "wild south" of the island (2.5 and 4 hour expeditions in St Philippe). They have also formed the island as a whole (caving expedition of Grande Ravine in the West).
Go behind the scenes, invisible from the outside, with Ricaric’s state Graduate Speleology guides during an exploration of a half day ...
In St. Philippe, no need to bend in cavities or crawl through narrow passages, you will smoothly saunter through Lava galleries to discover the volcanic shapes and colors each more amazing than the last.
On the west coast, the dizzying Grande Ravine offers a more challenging and definitely caving adventure, with a tunnel perched on a cliff that requires abseiling down a hundred meters.
Come in light clothes, shirt and thin trousers (it can be quite hot in there, so provide a change of clothes) and walking shoes, plus a bottle of water and a raincoat for possible showers in the approach. Specific equipment is provided (helmet and head lamp).
Activity not recommended for people with asthma, claustrophobia, heart disease and pregnant women.

Try tropical mountaineering in Reunion!
The formation of the cirques has led to climbing routes, cliffs and blocks on which beginners can make their first ascents (initiation from age 7, with ½ day sessions), and the towering ridges of the summits will be an adrenalin-filled experience to the more enlightened amateurs, always accompanied by our State graduated guides.
With the strong advice from our professional climbing instructors, you will soon be able to climb the great routes of Cilaos, to aim for autonomy, and why not consider the ridge hike of Les Trois Salazes (Alt 2030 m), a hotspot of local climbing perched between Cilaos and Mafate, with our Alpine guide ...
On the basalt walls Ricaric will introduce you to cracks and technical slabs, and you can improve your body language while bouldering.
Discover the sensational big walls of Cilaos, the rope ladders, dizzying abseiling, zip lines, cliff sessions mainly in the mountains but also on the seafront.
Please note :
You must be in good physical condition, not afraid of heights, show no contraindication, and not be pregnant.
Do not forget :
Come in shorts, t-shirt, walking shoes, hat with sunscreen and warm clothing for after the session, a picnic, 2 liters of water.
