Heli-Canyoning (Level 4)Our Heli-Canyoning trip is the ultimate Ticino canyoning trip for really fit and experienced Canyoners. We start with a short but spectacular helicopter flight from Lodrino airport to the landing zone at an elevation near 1100 meters. We actually fly below the level of the canyon walls, and you'll catch a glimpse of the adventure to come. Once we begin our descent, you will find a huge number of abseils (max. 45 metres), slides through natural chutes, and jumps (max. 15 metres) into narrow fissures with crystal clear pools. This is a long and varied canyon, one of the best in a canyoning region known throughout the world. The actual time in-canyon is about 6 hours.
