Souleuvre Viaduct – A.J. Hackett Normandy

Pets accepted
Activities for the whole family.
For the past 28 years, the Souleuvre viaduct has been proposing thrilling activities for all ages: track sledding, treetop adventure, giant zipline, giant swing, ‘Barefoot in the Garden’, pendulum jumping and bungee jumping. This protected natural site has been specially developed to offer families a great day out. Picnic area, bar and snacks, barbecue, children’s play area, walking, mountain biking trails, cycling. Free parking facilities on either side of the valley. Footbridge access: €1 per person (free for the under 13s).
The viaduct was built between 1887 and 1889, according to plans drawn up by Gustave Eiffel. It was to enable the Caen-Vire railway line to cross the Souleuvre valley. A.J. Hackett discovered the site in 1988 and it reminded him of the one he had just developed over the Kawarau River in New Zealand. The first jumps were made in November 1990.

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 activity: the scable (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. The 'Top Swing' (same principle as the giant swing except you depart solo from a height of 61m). New: A 1km long Alpine coaster, the only one in Western France (3.50€ per ride). Open at weekends and Public Holidays from April to November. Daily in July and August. From December to February on Saturday afternoon. Dining room available on site.
