Canyoning, emotion in motion
Find out where to go canyoning in Trentino!
SUMMER 2019 – Your heart may skip a beat as you slide into your wetsuit. Pull on your life jacket, secure your harness, check your ropes and carabiners, fasten your helmet and off you go on a journey of discovery of the Trentino gorges. This is canyoning, a bold sport that will take you out of your comfort zone and face to face with nature and that combines mountaineering with water sports.
No raft or board between you and the riverbed, you have to depend on just your arms and legs to get you through the narrow torturous gorges of the Trentino torrents. Swim or let yourself be transported by the current, abseil, slide or jump down into natural pools of water.
It’s not an extreme sport, it’s practiced in groups and at various difficulty levels and some routes are even suitable for children, yet it’s an opportunity to enjoy a unique experience in an uncontaminated environment.
Valle di Ledro
The Palvico and Rio Nero torrents are the protagonists when it comes to canyoning in this area. Both are located in the Val d’Ampola, not far from Lake Garda. The former is ideal for beginners, easy and not too long. The latter, that descends from Tremalzo, is longer and more challenging. In both cases however, fun and thrills are guaranteed!
Valle del Chiese
Not far from the town of Storo, the charm and magic sculpted by the gushing waters of the Palvico, Rio Nero and Tignale torrents, never cease to surprise. A wild adventure through fresh crystalline waters with a series of dives and jumps, the highest of which reaches 6 metres. This is one of the best-known canyoning areas in Italy.
Val Noana - Primiero
A descent through natural pools and unexpected, and otherwise unreachable, landscapes: the gorges of the Rio Neva and the Noana torrents, in the valley of the same name that opens onto the Valle di Primiero a few kilometres from Mezzano, offer magic to those seeking adventure, fun and adrenaline along their waters.
Val di Breguzzo - Giudicarie
Natural pools to jump into, waterfalls and rapids, caves to be explored and other incredible adventures await along the Rio Roldone torrent, in the heart of the Val di Breguzzo (close to "Breg Adventure Park”). This route, set in a wild pristine environment, takes advantage of the safety cables and rungs along some stretches to offer a family-friendly adventure for all.
Val di Sole
In the gorges of the Rio San Biagio, within the majestic Adamello-Brenta Natural Park, flow the ideal waters for those wishing to try canyoning for the first time. Rope descents of up to 20 metres, high beautiful waterfalls and journey of discovery. You’ll need your carabiners and harness not to mention expert guides.
