Full description

A thrilling canyoning route in the Rio Selvano, among pure waters, centuries-old rocks, vertiginous dives, natural slides and rope descents, is ideal for all adventurous spirits!

Come and discover a beautiful and hidden corner of Tuscany by trying your hand at anexciting and fun activity, to be performed in total safety accompanied by an expert guide.

If you are a nature and adventure lover, if you like challenges and want to get involved, you are in the right place even if you have no experience in canyoning. If, on the other hand, you are new to the activity, this route is the most complete and fun in Tuscany: we are sure it won't disappoint!

We will take care of everything you need, you just need to put all the enthusiasm you have into it!

What we will do

The meeting point is in Fabbriche di Vallico, in the province of Lucca. Here we will meet the guide who will provide us with thenecessary equipment and then we will move by car until we reach, in a few minutes, the entry point to the canyon. Before we begin, we will have a briefing to learn the rules for moving around in the water and the most appropriate behaviour to carry out the activity safely.

Welcoming us at the start of the canyon will be a fun slide with a dip in a beautiful natural pool. Along the way, we will encounter several natural slides - called toboga - carved by the flow of water over the rocks, we will face dives from different heights (from 1 to 7 metres), and at some points we will abseil with a rope. In any case, there will always be a way around the obstacle, so that even the most 'wimpy' will be able to enjoy the experience in total safety.

At the end of the route we will all return together to the base where we will leave our equipment and change. The activity lasts a total of 4 hours, 3 of which are spent canyoning.
