Canyoning Summer Special. Weekly Programme
Canyoning in Sierra de Guara and the Pyrenees.

It is well known that the star activity in Alquézar and the surrounding Sierra de Guara is canyoning. At Vertientes Aventura we offer various programmes for canyoning lovers to spend the summer exploring the rivers of Sierra de Guara and the Pyrenees.

We offer 3 weekly programmes of 4 days canyoning where we combine Level 2 & 3 descents. There are 2 programmes which take place entirely in Sierra de Guara and a third held half in Sierra de Guara and half in the Pyrenees. The suggested descents are some of the most spectacular and emblematic canyons in this exceptionally beautiful area and contribute to Sierra de Guara’s well deserved fame.

So don’t hesitate, come and discover a natural paradise: canyoning in Sierra de Guara and the Pyrenees.
