F.A.Q. CANYONING

What is canyoning?
Call in and learn about it and you will understand what is so special about it. Canyoning is an unforgettable outdoor experience. It is not just a water sport, it’s adventure, it’s nature, it’s fun!You can swim in clear pools, jump from rocks, slide or do abseiling. And you find yourself in a magical environment, between rocks that cristalline water has carved in thousands of years.
Canyoning is magical, fascinating, just a little crazy. Try something different and experience a few hours of “wet fun”.

You will be ok also if it is your first time, it’s easier than you imagine.

Our mountain guides look after you safety and fun all the way trough the canyon.

I have never done canyoning before, will I be able to do it?
Of course you will. Just choose the right tour to start with and you’ll see it’s easier than you imagine. And remember, a higher level of difficulty doesn’t necessarily mean more fun.

And if it rains?
Canyoning is possible also when it rains. We all get wet anyway. Only sometimes, after a long period of strong rains, the water may rise up to a dangerous level. In this case the tours are suspended, but only by decision of the guides

Do I have to be a good swimmer?
For canyoning you don’t need perfect swimming skills, you just need to feel comfortable with water.

Do I have to do all the jumps?
None of the jumps are compulsory. There is always the alternative of descending by rope,

What if I have never done abseiling before?
Before the first rope descent our guides will explain to all of you how to
do it. It is not difficult and great fun.

Almost half of our guests are women and they do it as well if not better than the boys.

What if I wear glasses?
People wearing glasses can keep them on if they really need them, just fix them with a cord. We alro recommend the use of water and shockproof cases and can provide them, if necessary.  Contact lenses can also be worn, you just need to be used to wearing them in water.
