Canyoning Val Grande (Level 2)

Val Grande, located in Val Maggia, is an exciting canyon that features some of the best slides in Ticino. Several jumps (up to 10m) and a 25m abseil will give some variety. Val Grande is also special because the rock is so unique. Vertical bands of black and white give it a very different look from other canyons in Ticino. The approach time is approximately 30 minutes.  

1 June to beginning of October, daily, from 4 persons. See the current tour dates, as well as the available spaces in the Booking Calendar.
