PRESENTATION OF CANYONING

Canyoning is a very fun outdoor sports activity. The descent of a canyon consists of jumping into natural pools, sliding down natural slides, swimming across fresh and clear pools, crossing rope passages, abseiling or zip-lining

FAQ

We have classified the canyons into 3 levels: Discovery Canyon, Adventure Canyon and Sport Canyon.

Of course, these levels are quite subjective, because we are in a natural environment. The level of difficulty of the same canyon can differ according to the water level. These levels are there to help you choose the canyoning which best suits you, in order to have a great time.

You can also contact us, we will guide you to the canyon that is best adapted to you.

Discovery level canyoning

The “discovery” level canyoning allows everyone to discover the activity without fear and in a fun way.

This canyon is ideal for families with young children or for the more cautious ones.

The Discovery level canyon is a canyon where we really take our time.

All activities, jumps, slides and abseils can be bypassed.

There are no mandatory obstacles in these canyons.

The average activity time is 3 hours.

These trips are designed for everyone and will leave you with an unforgettable experience!

Altipiani offers 2 canyoning courses, depending on the season.

Intermediate level canyoning

These are canyons with the possibility to make big jumps or beautiful slides.

Of course, the obstacles are progressive and optional. And above all, jumps and slides are NEVER compulsory in canyoning!

However, the use of a rope may be necessary to overcome these obstacles (zip line or abseiling).

The duration of the activity is approximately 4-5 hours.

Sport canyoning

This is a fairly long canyon course. There is no need to be an expert, we teach you the necessary techniques. The important thing is to be able to perform 5 to 6 hours of sport activity.

For example, the descent of the Vecchio river is a very sporty course because of its wild and difficult access. On the other hand, there are no compulsory obstacles: there are some big jumps possible but all the jumps in the canyon can be bypassed.

If you are more of a contemplative type and not so risk-taking, you can also go canyoning:

In canyoning, jumps and slides are never compulsory. There is always an alternative.

So you can go canyoning to enjoy the beauty of the place or to accompany your family without worrying.

There are no strong water flows in the canyons we offer, so you don’t need to be a very good swimmer.

Altipiani is there to guide you towards the canyon that best suits your level, so that you can enjoy your descent to the utmost.

Canyoning is the ideal outdoor activity for children. Jumping into pools, sliding down slides or abseiling are challenges that children can only dream of.

Altipiani has opened a special children’s canyon, the Capelli for kids, accessible from the age of 5-6 years. The child must weigh at least 20kg.

From the age of 10, depending on the level of sporting experience, children can go through the Verghellu canyon (and the Cippettu canyon in spring).

From the age of 10-12, you can accompany your child in our most athletic canyons: Vecchio, Coriscia or Petra-Leccia.

In the summer, we recommend the Verghellu, Altipiani’s favourite canyon, which is great for both beginners and experts!

For families with young children, discover this activity with complete peace of mind with the Capelli, a special canyoning descent for the very young, from 5-6 years old (20kg minimum).

You can also discover our canyons on a day trip, the intimate and playful Coriscia and the very sporty Vecchio.

In spring, we prefer the Petra-Leccia canyon (sport canyon) and the Cippettu canyon (discovery), the other canyons having a too important water flow.

It is also possible to practice other customisable canyons.

The canyons and water tours around Corte are canyons with turquoise, blue, green or transparent water; canyons that make you dream!

Clear water flows between the ponds, so they are never murky.

Whatever the canyon, Kid, initiation or sport, we provide you with real canyoning shoes for free.

We provide you with canyoning shoes from size 29 to 48.

Our canyoning instructors are experienced, we have been working with them for a long time.

Our canyoning rates are lower than those of our colleagues. For example, we sell the Verghellu canyon for €50 including special canyoning shoes.

Other agencies sell it for €55 + shoe rental (+ €8).

We have chosen to have a fair price for the canyon. There is only one price at Altipiani.
