Geocaching in the Célé valley

The Géocacha and Patrimoi canoe descents were designed by the Parc Naturel Régional des Causses du Quercy in partnership with canoe rental companies in the Célé Valley. These descents are a fun and original invitation to discover the remarkable architectural built heritage of the Célé Valley by mixing a means of soft mobility and the Geocaching dimension. So ready to embark on a canoe?

What is

geocaching ?

It’s a high-tech treasure hunt played with a smartphone or GPS. The game involves finding hidden objects, nicknamed “caches.” It can be played at any age. A logbook or notebook allows the geocacher to leave a comment on his or her experience, which can then be shared with the rest of the community via the geocaching.com website.

From geocaching to geocacha, there is only one Occitan step… which the Park has taken to respect the local language!

From Marcilhac Bourg

in Anglanat

This descent starts from the town’s boarding area in Marcilhac-sur-Célé, crosses the village of Sauliac-sur-Célé to end at the Anglanat landing area. From your cano, take advantage of this viewpoint to discover the old village of Sauliac and its troglodyte houses, the château de Geniez (15th-18th centuries), the chapelle Notre-Dame del Roc-Traoucat (19th century) or the height and beauty of the cliffs along the Célé.

From Anglades

in Conduché

This descent begins from the Anglades boarding area upstream from the village of Sauliac-sur-Célé and ends at the Conduché landing area. From your canoe, adopt another point of view to discover the majestic castle of Geniez which dates from the 15th-18th centuries, the troglodyte houses of Sauliac, the chapel of Notre-Dame del Roc-Traoucat or even the mill and the châteaux of Cabrerets (16th century).
