Level 3: Intermediate Canyoning

Intermediate Canyoning (Level 3)

 Canyoning: Description.

Longer routes where the difficulties encountered are no longer optional. Intermediate canyons usually take at least 5 hours to complete, not including long walks in and / or out.

Canyoning: Requeriments.

It is essential to have a good level of fitness and be accustomed to doing regular physical exercise and spending time in the mountains.

From a technical perspective it is essential to have done level 2 canyons without difficulty since the abseils, jumps and scrambling required at level 3 require a certain level of skill.

Canyoning. Location.

As canyoning has become the most popular adventure sports activity in Aragon we have widened our area to include canyons in Guara and the Pyrenees.

Fornocal, Gorgonchón, Mascún, Cueva Cabrito, San Martín de la Bal d’Onsera, Palomeras del Flumen…

Aigúeta de Babaruens (one of the best in the Pyrenees. A dynamic descent with a demanding walk in, this canyon forms a very narrow gorge with lush vegetation surrounded by privileged scenery and includes exciting jumps, slides and abseils..)
Further examples: The 12 abseils of the Liri Canyon, Lugar Canyon and the  Garganta de Escuaín…
