Full description

Did you know that 20 minutes from Varese there is a wild place where you can express all your desire for adventure?

Well, now you know! Experience an adrenaline-filled canyoning experience in the Rio del Casc stream in the Varese foothills of the Alps.

We assure you: these 3 hours of fun and adventure will not disappoint. Explorer's word!

What we will do

We will meet in Rancio Valcuvia (VA), 30 minutes before the time indicated at the time of booking.

Waiting for us will be our guide, who will hand over theequipment, officially starting the dressing-down operations.

At this point, we will walk for about 20 minutes to the entrance of the trail in the Rio del Casc stream. Once there, we will complete the dressing and attend a safety briefing .

We will then find ourselves inside a very steep, gorge-like canyon . Immediately at the beginning of our route, we will encounter a small slide of about 2 m: we will slide down it and end up in a pool of fresh water.

From here onwards, we will enter the heart of our adventure: we will face a series of 6 abseils, the highest of which measures 20 metres, either abseiling directly into the water or overcoming them by attaching ourselves to a cable car.

Between the fourth and fifth abseiling we will find ourselves walking in an environment with a tropical atmosphere: the lianas and green vegetation around us will make us forget for a moment that we are in the province of Varese.

With an altitude difference of 60 m and a length of 400 m, we will have completed our adventure in about 2 hours and 20 minutes. In about 5 minutes, we will then return to our starting point.

The experience will last about 3 hours in total.
