Heli-canyoning in Ticino is for canyoning enthusiasts looking for adrenaline and pure nature!

Let’s go to the canyoning Mecca of Ticino, Switzerland. In the valleys leading down from the Gotthard and San Bernardino passes, after the last ice age, extraordinarily beautiful and unexpectedly many gorges formed in hidden branches. Many of the gorges, which are fed with crystal clear water, are accessible as canyons and offer a variety of different levels of difficulty, jumps, slides and rappelling points.

You already know the canyoning equipment, you have mastered the various jumping, sliding and abseiling techniques and you already have a feel for the Ticino rock granite and gneiss. At dawn we set off for a very special highlight in Ticino. Helicopter canyoning!

The helicopter takes us to the entrance of the gorge. During the flight over the Riviera Valley and the towns of Lodrino, Cresciano and Osogna, you will get a first impression of what awaits you. The experienced pilot swings the helicopter into the gorge and flies up, following the course of the stream. We gain altitude quickly and after a few minutes we have already reached the landing platform. The pilot skillfully puts the helicopter on the ground and we get out in the forest clearing. After a short hike of a few minutes downhill, we now have 7-10 hours of superlative canyoning ahead of us. Countless waterfalls with cool jumps and slides in all variations are waiting for us.

This tour is ideal, for example, for a long weekend, a men's excursion or a special kind of bachelor party. Here, canyoning advanced and experienced riders get their money's worth.
