Activity description

If you are looking for the perfect initiation experience within the canyoning world, do not hesitate to try the Gorgo de la Escalera canyon near Valencia.

Gorgo de la Escalera is the perfect canyon for your holidays in the region of Valencia. Less than 1 hour away from the big city, and 1 hour and a half away from Alicante, this activity is ideal for the whole family and is available for the entire year.

Canyoning is an activity that involves going down canyons, through slides, or by jumping in mountains formed through water erosion.

You will finish the activity in a lake where you can relax and enjoy nature.
