Full description

Get ready for a breathtaking adventure as you explore the longest canyon on Lake Garda. It is called "Orsa Maggiore" and it is the full length of the Vajo dell'Orsa: a 6 km route with 500 metres of altitude difference and no less than 27 waterfalls.

You will spend a whole day in an unspoilt natural environment, diving into crystal-clear pools, sliding on toboggans, walking through narrow rocky gorges and abseiling down waterfalls.

If you've already been canyoning a few times and can't get enough of theadrenaline, this is the right activity for you!

What we will do

The meeting with the guides and the rest of the group will take place in Brentino Belluno (VR ) at 8:00 am. We will get acquainted with our fellow adventurers, have a coffee, and then the guides will conduct a briefing on the rules of behaviour and safety to best face the day.

After that we will move by shuttle bus to the starting point of the route (it will take about 40 minutes). Once there, it will take another 20 minutes of walking to reach the mouth of the Vajo dell'Orsa canyon. In some cases, it is possible that the approach is entirely on foot with a 2-hour walk and a final staircase...are you worried? If you choose this route, it means you are ready for anything!

Before entering the gorge, we will have another briefing on progression techniques and then we will finally be ready for adventure. The descent takes place in a wild environment and follows the course of the stream, which flows between steep walls and smooth rocks. Along the way, we will encounter all the typical elements of canyoning: natural slides, crystal-clear pools of water, waterfalls and rope descents.

The highest wall from which we will abseil is 25 metres, and the most adrenaline-pumping dive will be from a height of 7 metres (not obligatory). About halfway down, we will take a snack break to regain our energy and then set off loaded for the second part of the route.

At the end of the canyoning we will return to the base and, after a nice hot shower, we can end the day with beer and piadina all together. In total, the activity will last about 7 hours.
