A great experience for all those who love nature and children, youth and those you kept young at heart.

We organise a canyon tour once a week from the beginning of July to the end of August starting straight from the hotel. Hike through the wildly romantic Zemm Gorge. This adventurous tour requires climbing, swimming, hiking. This challenge is best mastered with team spirit, in order to have everyone get through this part of the world, in which time stands still. A great experience for all!
