Activity description

We offer you a canyoning excursion in the Rio Verde near Motril, we guarantee the most adventurous day trip ever.

Considered one of the most beautiful open canyons of crystal clear water in Andalucía, the Rio Verde Canyon is situated in the Natural Park Sierra of Almijara, 30 minutes from Motril, 1 hour from Málaga, and 1 hour from Granada city.

Río Verde excursion is the best canyon you can do in Andalusia with a duration of approximately 7 hours, with a lunch break in between. The physical and technical level required is medium-high, although you do not need previous canyoning experience. You will be swimming, walking, jumping in turquoise waters, and you will also rappel under waterfalls of 8, 9, 12 meters.

The best thing about Rio Verde is that it allows you to make up to about 20 jumps from 4 to 12 meters (optional jumps) and the best slide in Andalusia with a 13-meter run.


Approach: 1h30 min.
