Full description

Discover a beautiful and hidden corner of Tuscany with acanyoning adventure in the Rio Selvano, a few kilometres from Lucca. Immerse yourself in a natural environment full of surprises and prepare to live an exciting and fun experience.

Put yourself in the hands of an expert guide who will lead you through natural slides, dives, and rope descents. You will spend 3 breathtaking hours, amidst adrenaline and amazement, but always in total safety accompanied by an Expert Guide.

If you have never been canyoning, this is a great opportunity to discover a unique and increasingly popular sport. You will be provided with all thenecessary equipment and all you have to do is let yourself go on an adventure!

What we will do

We will meet at the base in Fabbriche di Vergemoli (LU). We will form the group, change into our gear (wetsuit, harness and helmet) and drive to a car park near the canyon entrance. There, we will have a briefing, during which the guide will instruct us on progression techniques and give us all the necessary instructions for carrying out the activity safely. After that, we will finally enter the waters of the Rio Selvano.

The first dive will be rather shallow and will serve to break the ice. Then, it will be a continuous succession of slides, rope descents and dives. The highest point from which to dive will be at a height of 8 m, and the longest slide will be 6 m long. However, for those who don't feel up to it, there will always be a way around the obstacle by easier... but less fun!

Once the adventure is over, we will head back to the base all together. The activity lasts a total of 4 hours, including 3 hours of canyoning.
