The Souleuvre viaduct, thought to be the work to Gustave Eiffel, is situated at the heart of green valleys. Erected as a railway bridge in 1891, the central section was removed in 1970 leaving only six of its pillars intact today.
Since 1990, bungy jumping has given the bridge a new lease of life. A 140m-long suspension bridge and platform were added, transforming the structure into a unique work of art overlooking the Souleuvre River, 4m deep at this point.
More than 10,000 professionally coached people take the 61m-leap from here each year.
Other activities include:
The Tyrolienne (giant zip-line), a 400m-long high wire run that crosses the valley at speeds of up to 100km/hr
'Le Swing', A giant swing for 1,2 or 3 people which goes from 0 to 130km/h in 3.5 seconds.
'Top Swing', (Pendulum Jump) The same principle as the giant swing except you depart solo from a height of 61m.
Luge, A 1km long Alpine coaster, the only one in Western France.
Dining room available on site.
This protected natural site is designed to spend a day with the family.
