Canyoning

Canyoning involves the use of abseiling, jumping and sliding to get from the top of a canyon, a river or a narrow valley to the bottom.
This is definitely one of the funniest activities you could practise around the area: canyon that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. Most canyons we have are cut into limestone, sandstone or granite.

Canyons can be very easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis in the sport is usually on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. A wide variety of canyoning routes are found throughout Lake Como area, and canyoning here is enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.

So leave behind any fear or indecision, ask us what’s the best choice suiting you!
