WHAT IS IT SPELEO-CANYONING?

This is the descent of underground canyons, more or less narrow, wearing an isothermal wetsuit, gym shoes or hiking boots with wedged soles (not smooth), a helmet with a headlamp and a harness.

WHERE IS IT DONE

In Italy, there are many possibilities, from Tuscany to Sardinia, from Friuli to Lombardy, etc. Breathtaking environments, of extraordinary beauty.

HOW IS IT DONE

The descent makes use of techniques borrowed from both canyoning and caving. We navigate through rocks and water, climbing, descending on ropes, sometimes swimming. It is an amazing activity. But do not improvise; hire a professional guide!

THE PLEASURE OF DISCOVERY

We are ready to take you inside Mother Earth, going where only a fortunate few can go

Fantastic caves and narrow recesses have been waiting for your arrival for millions of years. 

Fantastic adventures and incredible places just a few kilometers outside the city.

CAVING.

Caving, or spelunking (speleology, from the Greek spèlaion=cavern and logos=discourse) is the science that explores karst phenomena, that is, caves and natural cavities, their genesis and their nature.

Aside from its purely scientific aspect, spelunking attracts a considerable amount of people, who practice it as a sport, as a life philosophy, or even simply out of  curiosity and for fun! Exploring the underground is certainly one of the oldest of human activities. Indeed, caves were used by prehistoric man for protection against any danger. We are looking forward to taking you to try out and live this adventure together!
