CANYONING AS A SPORT AND RECREATION ARAUND GARDA LAKE AND LEDRO LAKE

 

What is canyoning?

What does it involve?
An introduction to the origin of canyoning as a sport in Trentino around Lago di Ledro and Lago di Garda.

Canyoning basically consists in descending mountain torrents that along their courses disappear into the body of the mountain, creating unique hidden landscapes of polished rock, waterfalls, and pools of crystal clear water.

For these descents you need the assistance of certified Alpine Guides, who will provide all the necessary equipment and ensure your safety throughout the excursion, right from the information and booking phase all the way to the return journey to the canyoning centre. If you do not have the necessary technique and experience in this activity it can be extremely dangerous, and is also prohibited.

The canyons around Lago di Garda and Valle di Ledro are ideal for this activity because they offer outstanding geology and landscape. The descents are incredibly exciting with sequences of jumps, slides, acrobatic manoeuvres, and rope abseils. You can be 100% sure not to be bored.

A SHORT HISTORY OF CANYONING IN TRENTINO

As an outdoor activity canyoning probably started in France in the late 1980s. People enjoyed it enormously and it attracted an ever growing number of enthusiasts, soon arriving in Italy. In the early 1990s mountaineers started exploring the area around Lago di Garda and Valle di Ledro and they discovered some outstandingly good canyon descents. Local Alpine Guides began offering this activity professionally, accompanying groups and providing all the necessary safety equipment for the many tourists who pass the broiling hot summer holiday months in Trentino near Lago di Ledro and Lago di Garda. The result was an explosive success! People began to realise that the canyons surrounding Lago di Garda and in particular Valle di Ledro are absolutely gorgeous and offer an unforgettable adventure. Word soon got around the camp sites and hotels and suddenly everyone wanted  to try this unique experience.

Today the canyons are just as beautiful as they were in those early summers of the 1990s. We have been operating every summer as the Valle di Ledro Guiding Group with our canyoning centre and lots of enthusiasm. Come and visit us in Valle di Ledro, Pieve di Ledro, Via Nuova 7.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. Is it a problem if I wear glasses or contact lenses?
    IF YOU CANNOT DO WITHOUT GLASSES YOU SHOULD TIE THEM ON WITH A CORD (ASK OUR GUIDES FOR HELP AT OUR BASE). ON BIG JUMPS YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM OFF AND PUT THEM IN YOUR JACKET POCKET. DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES ARE RECOMMENDED – SOME OF OUR GUIDES USE THEM DAILY WITHOUT PROBLEMS.
  2. What if I am afraid of jumping?
    THIS IS NO PROBLEM AND OUR GUIDES CAN ALWAYS LOWER YOU DOWN ON THE ROPE. SLIDING AND JUMPING ARE GREAT FUN, BUT NEVER OBLIGATORY.
  3. If it rains and the trip is cancelled will I lose my fee?
    TRIPS ARE NOT NORMALLY CANCELLED FOR RAIN SINCE GETTING WET IS PART OF THE FUN. HOWEVER, IF THE WATER LEVEL IN THE CANYON IS UNSAFE THE TRIP WILL BE CANCELLED AND YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL.
    IN ALL CASES TRENTINOCLIMB WILL INFORM YOU OF ANY CHANGES AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.
