What you'll do

Discover Clermont-Ferrand as few people will have done; by the axis of its underground river: the Tiretaine!
We will put feet in the water for 2h to 3h of urban, underground and natural hiking. A world of contrast; the edges of the city, the basement, the silence and the noisy sounds, a wild vegetation in contact with concrete.
Historical and sociological discussion. Photography for amateurs.
Visit the surrounding parks with restored banks. Route along the tunnels.
At any time, possibility of release in less than 10 minutes.
Dry debriefing. And return accompanied to the starting point.

An activity from 2h to 3h. Sporty, exploratory, unpublished. Mandatory boots (or submersible shoes) and headlamp. ; -)
Other things to note
A special urban hike: feet in the water, a bit messy, a bit physical. Provide extra clothes. Boots or submersible shoes. A headlamp is welcome. Gloves too. And a little taste for urban adventure. ; -)

Urban explorer, photographer, I roam the basements, roofs and hidden sites of Clermont-Ferrand for 20 years. I now propose, safely, a visit - not forbidden - to the Tiretaine, the secret river that runs under the city. Geological, historical and sociological visit.

Where you'll be

Très belle expérience, une belle découverte hors des sentiers battus et qu'ils nous aurait été difficile de faire par nous même. Nous recommandons vivement cette expérience.

Expérience réservée aux moins de 50 ans nécessitant souplesse, force physique et ne pas être claustrophobe. Tarif beaucoup trop élevé.
