LOGISTICS

From the meeting point, a 3 minute drive will take us to the lower parking site, where we will leave at least one automobile, with towels and dry clothing. With a second vehicle, we will continue uphill to the higher parking site (5 minutes). From here, a 15 minute hike will lead us to the canyon, and after the safety and activity briefing, we will finally enter the canyon. 

 The canyon descent unfolds with abseils (10, the highest of which is 15 m), jumps from up to 6 meters high, (but never obligatory), slides and pools to swim across. 

We will be in a beautiful wilderness setting, perfect for a first experience and to discover the world of CANYONING. Once we reach the automobiles that we have left at the lower parking site, we can change into our dry clothes, go retrieve the vehicle/s left upstream, and head for home. 

No knowledge of abseiling and rope techniques is required.

For general information regarding this activity, download the briefing and the activity sheet.
