Hesitate, breathe, persevere and win: Canyoning in Cugnasco for experienced canyonists
You already have experience in canyoning. Jumping and abseiling is no problem for you. But then suddenly there is this one crevice that you dread. You hesitate, looking for a way out. But it doesn’t help, now it’s time to take a deep breath and go!
Every canyoning experience is different. Every canyonist works differently. But most of us know experiences like the one described. Because that is precisely what is so fascinating about the outdoor sport canyoning: we get to know ourselves in a completely new way by dealing with the elements in a wilderness that has grown over centuries or millennia.
When canyoning in Cugnasco you embark on such an adventure again. Cugnasco is located near Locarno in the Swiss Ticino, in the region where not only the sun but also the names, the language and the scent of southern plants remind us that we are already very close to the border to Italy .
When canyoning in the Gorge of Cugnasco, it is above all the element of water that guides and drifts us. The gradient that we follow, sometimes light and carefree, sometimes focused and concentrated, meter by meter. It's not a struggle, but it does take a little courage and effort to pass this gorge tour in Ticino.
But as is too often the case with canyoning, we are rewarded for our stamina. Because it just feels good to be in motion instead of being moved. And because the landscape gives us the most beautiful and deepest insights that only canyonists can see.
