Full description

Discover the surprising ecosystem of the Reggio Emilia Apennines and enjoy nature with a canyoning experience on the Secchia river. Set off on an adventure between water and rock!

Canyoning consists of walking along the bed of a stream flowing in a wild and uncontaminated environment, among rocky gorges and pools of crystal-clear water. It is a mix of water sports, trekking and mountaineering. You will have to be prepared to climb over rocks, scramble, dive into natural pools and swim short distances.

Bring out theexplorer in you and get ready to experience one thrill after another. Let the current carry you along the toboggans, the natural slides carved by the water on the rock, it will be a feeling you will never forget!

What we will do

We will meet in Collagna, in the province of Reggio Emilia, where we will meet the guide who will accompany us during the activity and who will provide us with thenecessary equipment. After this, we will drive to the canyon entrance point in Cerreto Alpi, famous for its scenic value.

Before starting the descent, we will have a briefing on safety rules and basic progression techniques. At this point we will begin to explore the Schiocchi del Secchia, a very evocative area, surrounded by greenery, with rocky ledges overhanging the torrent. Along the way we will admire the millenary rock stratifications that make it a true geological monument.

The itinerary will take place between dips, natural slides, walking and water stretches. We will find two cable cars that will allow us to slide along steel cables to facilitate passage in particularly inaccessible places. At the end of the excursion, we will exit the gorge by climbing a 12-metre rock face, equipped with ladders. We will always be secured with ropes, cables and karabiners, and the experienced guide will guarantee us maximum comfort and safety.

No difficulty is mandatory and there will always be the possibility of bypassing the obstacle by taking an easier route. The activity lasts 5 hours in total, of which 3½ hours will be needed to do the canyoning route. Finally, we will return to the cars, return the equipment and have lunch or dinner all together in a local restaurant (the price is not included in the participation fee).

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and is open to everyone from 10 years old and up. It is not compulsory to know how to swim, but you must at least be able to stay afloat.
