Located on the Catalan Pyrenees, the Barros Canyon is one of Barrankisme's best initiation canyoning itineraries. Near Sort (Lleida), this outing will blow your mind!
Canyoning is one of the most rewarding and exciting outdoor sports you can practice. Thanks to the constant flow of rivers through the mountains which have caused them to erode, canyons are formed which become an adventurers playground! This sport is quite straight-forward, it's about making your way down the stream or the canyon and sorting all the obstacles that nature will put on your path.
On a canyoning trip, you'll be required to hike, jump into natural pools, slide down naturally-carved water slides, and abseil down cliffs and even waterfalls! This is the reason why so many people are attracted to this sport which is the best way to disconnect from daily life and get in touch with your wild side!
The Berros Canyon is a granite and limestone canyon that will put you to the test right from the start. A 4 m. abseiling descent is the first obstacle to sort, followed by a 4 m. jump, a 2 m. waterslide and a second 7 m. abseil into a natural pool. Several waterslides will follow until reaching the last 9 m. abseil.
