Despite the English name, the history of canyoning begins in Europe at the end of the nineteenth century, as a scientific-exploratory activity. Only after the 70’s it is practiced as a sport and since then it has gained popularity among adventure seekers wanting to tackle gorges of various difficulties in spectacular locations.
There are several rivers and gorges nested in the mountains around Lake Garda known all over Europe for they’re beauty. Long breath-taking slides, jumps in crystal clear pools, abseiling in beautiful waterfalls.. all of this should be expected when embarking on a canyoning excursion, which will provide great fun for beginners, experienced, and for the whole family.
