The Val Grande is ideal for newcomers to the sport of canyoning. This guided tour through the Maggia Valley is optimal for the first steps in canyoning, because most of the obstacles can be bypassed without problems or replaced by easier ones.
Canyoning is all about crossing beautiful gorges and the rivers that flow through them, using a wide variety of locomotion options. Climb up walls, swim through the crystal clear rivers and pools, slide down the streams, jump into the depths or rappel down from high cliffs: Canyoning simply combines everything that has to do with adrenaline and activity!
