The canyoning routes on Lake Garda are among the most beautiful in Europe. The depth of the gorges, crystal clear waters, wild environment and numerous natural obstacles make canyoning the perfect activity for those who want to be in close contact with nature and experience an exciting adventure.
Canyoning trails on LakeGarda can be found on all sides of the lake and attract many canyoning enthusiasts every year. Everyone can tackle this incredible discipline; just choose the itinerary best suited to your level and you're ready to go!
Canyoning is a water discipline that involves the exploration of ravines, which are narrow rock gorges through which mountain streams flow. Accompanied by a guide, you descend on foot along the watercourse. During the activity, you may encounter waterfalls and rock walls to be overcome by abseiling, just to later enjoy a dip in natural pools and have fun getting carried away by the current of the slides.
Canyoning is practiced in groups and has different levels of difficulty. There are easy routes that can be practiced even by families with children, and much more challenging routes suitable only for sportsmen. The activity is conducted by certified mountain guides and meets all safety standards.
To go canyoning, you wear a neoprene wetsuit, which is provided by the outdoor center, along with a helmet, ropes and harness. Participants are asked to wear a swimsuit, thermal shirt and hiking shoes you’re fine with getting wet.

A wonderful experience. Thomas, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and constantly put us at ease by explaining all the complicated steps in all the languages necessary to be understood by the group. We also immediately bonded with the other guys in the group and made new friends. Highly recommended choice for sharing experience with strangers who quickly become friends! The difficulty is consistent with the indications, 3 out of 5. Ideal for really spending an alternative day
Yesterday was a very nice experience with my children aged 15 and 18. The equipment we were provided with is of good quality and the guides Andrea and Gabriel are very knowledgeable and helpful. I had a little difficulty and they were more than kind. I rented the cam and it was great to see yesterday again. I recommend everyone to have this experience with the family.
Gabriel, our guide, was really good and engaging. after a short briefing, he put us at our ease straight away and made us live this experience with confidence and adrenalin.
