Level 1 Family aquatic Descent

Family Level 1

 Canyoning: Description.

Aquatic Canyoning can be described as exploring the course of a river. Our family orientated trips are to canyons that do not present any serious difficulties. Your journey will include a combination of narrow gorges with beautifully sculpted walls, punctuated with tranquil pools and beautiful waterfalls. You and your family will enjoy the spectacular scenery not forgetting the fun of occasional jumps and natural slides on the way.

You will be accompanied at all times by an expert guide. There is often an optional abseil for those who are keen to learn the technique. Abseiling will allow you to visit more demanding canyons and experience more of the sensations of canyoning. The length of the activity can be easily adapted to the needs of each group. The maximum size of the group is 10.

Canyoning: Requeriments.

No previous experience is needed to try canyoning. You just need to be able to swim or at least be unafraid of water. A general level of fitness which allows you to spend a full day in the mountains.

These activities have been chosen especially for families. Participants should be 5 years old or above.

Children need the permission of a parent or guardian. To ensure that children enjoy the trip it is important that they are keen on sports and nature, outgoing and sociable and able to get along well with the guide.

Canyoning. Location.

There are many suitable canyons in Sierra de Guara, a canyoning paradise.

The third chaos of the River Vero Canyon, in Alquézar is one of the most highly recommended for its beauty and accessibility.

Level 2 Canyoning descent- From beginners to expert

From beginners to expert

 Canyoning: Description.

Canyoning consists of travelling the course of a canyon (a river enclosed between narrow eroded rock walls), using techniques adapted from caving and mountaineering to overcome steep drops and alterations in the course of the river. Crossing gravel beds, scrambling over chaotic boulders, sliding down naturally formed water slides, jumping into deep pools or passing through narrow sections using hands and feet in opposition and abseiling when we encounter a steep drop or waterfall are all part of the fun.

Aquatic Canyon Descents are those which don’t require the use of ropes and there is no need to abseil, while Canyoning Descents include abseils.

In Level 2 canyons, none of the obstacles encountered are particularly difficult which makes these descents ideal for beginners or those who are looking for fun and emotion in a controlled environment.

Canyoning: Requeriments.

No previous experience is needed for level 2 canyoning. You just need a level of general fitness which would allow you to spend a full day walking in the mountains. In aquatic canyons it is important to be able to swim or at least be unafraid of water.

If you choose a trip which includes abseiling it is important not to suffer excessively from vertigo. You at least need to be comfortable near the edge of a 15m drop.

Canyoning. Location.

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

CANYONS IN GUARA:

Aquatic descents: The River Vero Canyon offers an especially spectacular descent with fantastic views. This river doesn’t have a great number of jumps, but the characteristic formations of the canyon walls winding between enormous boulders give this 6 hour trip its unique character.
The Peonera Canyon is an especially “aquatic” section of the River Alcanadre  with a large number of falls, jumps into pools, water slides and siphons. This dynamic 5 hour descent demands a lot of energy and promises a lot of fun in return.

Canyon descents: The River Formiga and the Balcés Canyon (River Isuala) offer a more concentrated version of canyoning. Shorter (between 2h30’ and 3h30’ in the water) but with the emphasis on abseiling.
