Canyoning Q&A

What is Canyoning?

Canyoning is a water sport (in mountainous areas) and consists of navigating descents on foot down rocky torrents (without a canoe, kayak or inflatable raft). It includes abseiling down vertical sections of the canyon.

What do I need to bring?

You just need a pair of trekking shoes (or anti-slip trainers that will get wet), swimming costume, towel/bathrobe and a cord for your glasses. We’ll provide the rest!

What do I need to wear?

Getting ready is easy – you just need a pair of trekking shoes (or anti-slip trainers that will get wet), swimming costume, towel and a cord for your glasses. Rockonda will provide all the necessary kit and equipment free, including: helmet, harness, neoprene wetsuit, life jacket (upon request), karabiners and safety ropes.

Who can go canyoning?

Canyoning is suitable for everyone and doesn’t require any specific physical preparation or training. The full day canyoning is longer and slightly more challenging, for which you need to know how to swim and to be reasonably fit.

Where is the Canyoning activity?

Canyoning is a water sport which takes place along rivers, across gulleys. Rockonda will bring you to explore the Lima torrent and its unspoilt natural beauty. There are two options – a canyon near Bagni di Lucca and a canyon in Garfagnana, which we’ll choose based on the level of difficulty you’d like to tackle.

Is canyoning suitable for beginners?

Classic canyoning is a perfect introductory activity. It’s suitable for all levels and this activity follows the most fun route through the canyon. Both beginners and Canyoners with more experience can enjoy it.
