Canyoning consists in the descent on foot of streams that flow inside narrow gorges deeply carved into the rock and characterized by a low flow rate (generally less than 200 liters per second) and a steep slope. The term frequently used by practitioners to indicate all this is “gorge”.
Obstacles within a gorge are mainly represented by waterfalls, which are overcome with the aid of ropes or – if it is possible – by diving, sliding or climbing downhill. There are often deep lakes at the base of the falls. In such case, after the descent, with a short swim you reach the shore. With the use of ropes, an anchoring system must be present (that is something to secure the rope), prepared using expansion plugs or fixed using special resins. The ropes are recovered at the end of a descent and reused for the followings descents (and that is the second reason why it is impossible to go back).
Our canyoning routes have a variable duration between 2 and 4 hours (in water and in these natural environments the duration of the time is always variable). Canyoning is not an individual sport, but a group sport. It is ideal for groups of friends but also for meeting new people by sharing a unique experience.
