The starting point is on the road that runs from Passo d’Ampola to Storo. Just after the pass, in a lay-by, we wear neoprene wet suit and socks, gym shoes, harness and helmet. We right away enter in the water and in a fresh pool the Mountain Guides will make a short but detailed briefing to explain the activity, the rules and the behaviors to keep.
The first part of the canyon is very soft: we walk in the pebbly riverbed, we have small jumps, sometimes we climb down from small stones and we have short abseils on small slides, for a first approach with the river.
The gorge becomes gradually narrower and the light reduces, and the limpid blue and green color of the water stand out. The side walls are high and we swim, cradled by the water flow, in crystal water hallways.
The descent get's adrenaline filled when the canyon change it’s slope and we find a spectacular toboga: a rocky slide polished by the water course. A slide ending with an amazing jump in a natural pool inside a half cave.
Some more jumps and we reach the lower part of the canyon: more deep in the high rocky walls of the gorge. The environment it’s incredible: we pass through rooms excavated in the rocks from the water flow, with pools lighted from a low light that filter from the foliage of the trees over standing the gorge, making unique trick of light and shadow. With a last narrow passage we reach the last abseil: a 50 m waterfall ending in a small lake where relax under the sun and have a final bath.
