Great fun with a really good guide

The canyoning was well organized and a lot of fun and adrenaline. The puccaraccia area is amazing and worth a visit in any case! We made a river hike alone the day after our canyoning and it was very difficult, so we were happy we learned so much from our instructor. Definitely recommended to book a canyoning tour, even if you want to also explore on your own.

Incroyable activité !

Magnifique canyoning avec un super instructeur, très sympa, professionnel. Le décor est à couper le souffle avec de belles descentes en rappel et toboggans. Je recommande vivement.

Accessible aux débutants. Les "toboggans" était vraiment sympa et accessible à tous.

Excellente descente

Très bonne activité. Marche d’approche un peu fatiguante. Toboggans sympa à faire et les quelques sauts proposés étaient intéressants. Bon canyoning

Just a bit unorganised, providing a bit of food would also have been nice. We didn't get our bars or bottles of water.
