Canyoning in Mallorca. Adventure Expeditions

Discover the other Mallorca

Discover another side to Mallorca, different to a typical beach holiday. Canyoning in Mallorca is still relatively unheard of, don’t wait to be told, come and discover for yourself; sport, emotion and unbelievable landscapes.

It is well known among canyoneers that the canyons of Mallorca have special character. On the one hand we have the mythical Sa Fosca Canyon, which many consider to be one of the best in Europe, (half in sunlight, half in darkness) and on the other, the sensations derived from following some of the canyons all the way to the sea, combining mountainous terrain with technical descents and a spectacular finish.

Description of the Canyons

Na Mora:
While not particularly technically demanding this canyon is interesting and varied, including: jumps, narrow passages, pools, caves and a spectacular finish as the canyon opens out into the sea.

Mortitx
Another canyon which leads to the sea where we can take a swim, time permitting. A boat will be waiting at the mouth of the canyon ready to take us back to our starting point. In the case of rough seas, this canyon will have to be changed for another itinerary.

Gorg Blau and Sa Fosca
Known to be among the most extraordinary canyons in Spain and perhaps in Europe, this itinerary is beautiful, narrow and challenging.  We will enjoy a great number of jumps and abseils with water and narrow sections so dark that we will need head torches to find our way. An unforgettable day out.

Gorg de l’Ofre
One of Mallorca’s most emblematic canyons, characterized by its steepness and long abseils, with a pretty walk in along some of the island’s stony paths.

When organizing these trips we try always to involve our own guides from Vertientes Aventura. Our guides travel with the clients to our destination and accompany them throughout the trip. Occasionally, and only when none of our guides is available, we organize trips involving guides local to the area we are visiting, who we know well and trust to provide an excellent service as good as that provided by our own team.
