LOGISTICS

 We will meet up at our Canyoning Center, which is located right at the base of Rio Selvano. After an initial presentation, we will put on our wetsuits and equipment directly at the Center.

Then by automobile we will reach the upper parking site (10 minutes), from where, with a short 3 minute walk, we will reach the first jump into the waters of Rio Selvano.  After the safety and activity briefing, off we go!

 There are a total of 6 obligatory abseils, and for the rest, it’s all slides and jumps (never obligatory).

Fun is guaranteed for young and old! 

Once we have finished the descent, we will return to the Canyoning Center on foot (a 2 minute walk), where we will change into our dry clothes, and go pick up the car left upstream. 

No knowledge of abseiling and rope techniques is required.
