Drops, slides, waterfalls and toboggans etched out of the rocks by the millenary activity of water characterize the natural environment faced when canyoning (also known as canyoneering).
All this surrounded by an unspoilt natural environment, only accessible by doing this sport. It is a river activity which however involves some techniques used in mountaineering and speleology, such as the use of ropes, carabiners, anchors, etc…
The descent is exciting and thrilling and allows you to observe striking landmarks which would otherwise be hidden out of sight and to gain a different perspective of the landscape.
Everyone, even those who have just heard about canyoning for the first time, can try this experience, swimming, diving, and trying out that special feeling, wherever this is possible, of abseiling.
Equipment provided by the centre: 3 mm or 5mm sleeveless wetsuit (depending on the weather), 5 mm neoprene jacket, Petzle canyoning harness, ropes and carabiners
What to bring: A wool, fleece or microfibre shirt (those used for skiing are fine), swimming costume, socks, trainers with non-slip soles or lightweight hiking boots, personal items for showering and a dry change of footwear.
