It's a challenge and you're hesitant: go over or give up? But it's only after this experience that you'll know for sure whether canyoning is the sport for you.

Hanging suspended in the void, attached to a rope, is just the beginning. Living a breath-taking adventure, you discover a unique and exciting activity. Would you have ever imagined it?

With your helmet, wetsuit and harness, you leap down among rocks, channels, waterfalls and deep gorges. As you cross those natural slides and let yourself be carried along by the water, the emotion is indescribable. Seeing is believing!

You face this moment full of adrenaline and folly, but in relative safety. As they told you: once you've overcome your fears, it's all downhill. 

Lodrino Valley

Lodrino Valley

One last jump and you've arrived. Among the fronds of trees and glimpses of rock, there it is: a pool of transparent water flowing from the waterfall where you are standing at the top. The end is a few metres away. You pluck up courage, gather momentum and leap down the smooth rock until you finally dive into the water with a splash.

A few snoozing sunbathers are abruptly awakened. Bewildered and surprised, as though they had just seen an extraterrestrial being, they pester you with questions.

When, at last, you finally have a moment to look around, you realise that you find yourself in the middle of a green oasis.
