“Walking” on water that descends the streams: a new challenge
Canyoning is a part water, part mountain sport that consists of following a descent on the small mountain streams, which are often enclosed between high, rocky walls, and overcoming obstacles on your way using specific techniques: small waterfalls, “the giants' containers” dug by the water into the rock, chutes (natural slides created by erosion) and jumps.
Sporting activities practiced using a diving suit, helmet and harness and with the assistance of a professional, mountain guide who accesses the best route to follow and teaches the best techniques to proceed in absolute calm. Diving into an emerald green water well or descending a foaming waterfall are truly emotional experiences, which enable close contact with nature and the exploration of uncontaminated areas.
Aosta Valley offers different itineraries for this activity and despite the fact no particular training or mountaineering skills are required, we recommend you consult the mountain professionals.
