Canyoning in Corippo

Canyoning in Corippo (Ticino): Your entry into a fascinating trend sport

Hiking, cycling, swimming or climbing – the Verzasca Valley in Ticino, Switzerland is made for a relaxing active holiday. Many canyoning enthusiasts also fondly remember their first canyoning tour near Corippo, the smallest municipality in Switzerland with just 12 inhabitants, whose historic village center has been a listed building since 1975.

On our hike to Corippo canyoning, we make a short visit to the village. Then it starts with a special kind of outdoor experience, which for many enthusiastic canyonists represented the first entry into this exciting sport. Following the course of the water, we practice jumping into green shimmering pools, we pave our way through narrow crevices or we happily slide down the rock. At the end of the tour, the highlight of canyoning in the Corippo Valley awaits us: the slide into the Vogorno artificial lake.

The four-hour gorge tour is ideal for beginners, families or groups who want to spend a varied day together. If you register as a group, it can be varied according to your wishes.

For families with younger children or people with physical disabilities, it is advisable, for example, not to cross the entire canyon in the Corippo Valley, but to stay in the upper area, where there are enough opportunities to try out the canyoning experience in a playful way. Previous knowledge is not required for canyoning at Corippo, only swimming skills are required.
