Trou blanc canyon is the star canyon of the Reunion island.
A lot of slides and jumps have made Trou blanc famous.
It’s a “natural water park” !
Note that this canyon isn’t doable all year long.
Good hydrological conditions are required to do it.
But in good conditions it’s for sure a memorable day !
Who it will suit :No experience required. For adults and adolescents athletic men and women / Families (starting from the age of 12 years) / Groups of Friends / Individuals.

Trou blanc canyon description :Technical difficulty : ++ Physical difficulty : ++ It is located in Salazie area in Hellbourg village near the "Piton des Neiges". It is only a thirty minute walking approach which leads to the river giving rise to the canyon. The descent takes place in a sumptuous mineral universe. The first part is a gorge which is particularly enclosed. Afterwards the canyon widens but the scenery is still marvelous. The particularity of "Trou blanc" is the abundance of slides, most of which have poetic names ( "Raclette", "Tim", "bath", "washing machine", "caterpillar", "the vavavoum" " the particle accelerator "...), jumps, and a final zip line. The jumps and zip line are never obligatory, if you don't want to jump or go down through the zip line we abseil you. Depending on the year and their cyclonic floods, some jumps, slides, and the final zip line can or can't be done. That is based on water levels into the pools.
