Your entry into canyoning.

White granite, crystal clear water, warming rays of sunshine that penetrate the chestnut forests on Lake Maggiore and you are right in the middle of it! Right in the middle of this breathtaking nature. As a canyoning beginner in the Eldorado Ticino, you will receive all the information and training you need from us before your canyoning tour. The experienced, international and local canyoning guides guarantee optimal preparation for the water fun in the Ticino gorges. After an initial safety briefing at the parking lot or at our outdoor base, we will equip you with your personal safety equipment for canyoning tours.

The beginner gorges in Ticino usually start with a short ascent, when you reach the top there are further safety briefings and you will learn to abseil yourself. Even on our canyoning tours for beginners, the independent abseiling is an important point. Good abseiling skills are the basis for further adventures in the advanced canyoning tours and gorges in Ticino. When we have completed the abseiling exercise, we go into the crystal clear water, which is what Ticino is known for. The canyoning fun begins! Jumping, sliding, abseiling, all action is included and yet we enjoy the tranquility and wilderness of nature in the southernmost canton of Switzerland.

Jumping and sliding into the washed-out granite pools are part of our beginners canyoning tours in Ticino as well as ours sporty canyoning tours in Ticino always optional. With perfect preparation, good togetherness and an optimal selection of gorges, the day and your canyoning experience are sure to be a pleasure.
