Canyoning in Pontirone

Exciting outdoor experience in untouched nature: Canyoning in Pontirone

A deeply cut valley in the middle of steep, green, forested slopes – this is how the Val Pontirone presents itself, in which one of the most eventful canyons of the Swiss Ticino is located, the canyon Pontirone inferiore. Canyoning in the Pontirone only takes us about 100 meters deep, but you can feel in every corner and at every passage that it is a very special kind of canyoning experience.

Is it the light granite rock or the cave-like shape of the gorge, in which the feeling of security forms an exciting contrast to adventurous discoveries and the jumps that require full concentration? Whatever makes canyoning in Pontirone so attractive and has earned the gorge the reputation of being the “little sister of the Lodrino Canyon”, you'll find out on our guided canyoning tours in Ticino.

Exciting climbing passages, impressive jumping and abseiling areas allow a fantastic alternation between action and intense encounter with the elements. Well protected and warmed by our neoprene suits, we make our way at a pleasant 10 ° Celsius at the end of the gorge tour through the darkest part of the canyon in Ticino, to which not even the smallest ray of sun can penetrate. At the exit point, most canyonists agree: This wonderful outdoor experience could have been a little longer.

Short but challenging: Canyoning Pro in the Pontirone

Short but challenging is the short assessment for canyoning in Pontirone, which is why participation is particularly suitable for canyonists with some previous knowledge, as well as for everyone who can keep up on the pro level and who are passionate about jumping.

The first big challenge follows the half-hour ascent: a 40 meter high abseil where you experience how wonderful it feels to float securely into the depths of the canyon.

Abseiling can be done directly in the middle of the waterfall or on the sides. Another abseil point, which requires a lot of skill due to the sharp-edged rocks, can optionally be bypassed.

Short or not, at least four times you have the opportunity to perform great jumps from heights of up to 11 meters while canyoning in Pontirone. Alternatively, you can also choose to abseil here. But it is worthwhile to choose the jump variant, because the canyoning experience in Pontirone offers you a good opportunity to surpass your previous jumping experience and to expand your own limits jump by jump.

We provide you with the special equipment for canyoning in Pontirone at no extra cost. You are also welcome to use our photo service free of charge to look back at all the deep and narrow passages that you faced with courage and desire for adventure.
