Italy - Beginners

We start the program with a safety briefing and training. There is a spot by the river Soca where we present, explain and show you everything you need to know for a safe descent of the canyons. We go through the right jumping technique (take-off, landing) as well as the technicalities of rappelling. We explain to you how to slide down waterfalls and teach you important communication and decision making skills.

Now that we are ready, we can finally go for some action. We will go trough three canyons. During the trip we become more confident and skilful, the canyon becomes more adventurous, fun and you will enjoy it more and more.

Canyons

Carlo Gasparini is the first canyon we enter. It is a nice and easy training canyon, which is specific, because it is bi-colour. In the first part, you can expect technical walking in narrow passages in the canyon, four interesting rappels (the highest is 13 meters) and a few slides. In the second part, we will be swimming and doing some jumps. The advantage of the canyon is the short entry and exit walk.

The second one is a canyon called Rio Patoc. This canyon is great for people who are new to abseiling. There are 15 beautiful rappels between 3 and 20 metres with unforgettable sights. We finish in a river, which flow can bring us all the way to our cars if the water level is fine. We finish in a gentle current that, in the right conditions, takes us all the way to the carpark.

The last canyon, Rio Brussine, is a perfect ending to the trip. It begins with a 7m (voluntary) jump and ends with 60m rappel. Between these two waterfalls, you can expect some technical jumps, interesting slides and beautiful rappels.

Additional informations

Transport

Italian city Tolmezzo is modern tourist desnation in middle of Soča Valley. It is located on north of Slovenin-Italian border.

All the roads are great and you will basically get to the city almost all the way by highway so you do not need to be scared to come with your own car or caravan.

Accomodation

Around Tolmezzo town is a good choice to stay, as it is not so crowded. There are a few campsites, hotels and mountain huts. You can find the right spot for you on booking.com and it’s best to book in advance.

Insurance

We do not provide insurance - and not because of the price - but because we don’t want to ask for your personal information.

Frequently asked questions

No, we believe that canyoning is an activity that can be fun for everyone. It is enjoyable not only for adrenaline junkies, but also for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Example: on our trip we can encounter a 10m waterfall with the option of jumping down. Some people jump right away, some need a little encouragement and some can go down the waterfall using ropes - that way they don't have to jump at all. Everyone can get something out of it and fine-tune the experience to their preferred level of adrenaline.
Almost no one has experience with canyoning. That’s why we created the BEGINNER program. We will guide you through the whole trip. At the beginning, during the safety briefing, all required equipment and techniques will be demonstrated.
The water can be a bit cold. But you will get wetsuits that will protect you. Normally you are only cold for the first few seconds, then water in the neoprene suit reaches body temperature and you will become one with the water.
If you add up the cost of entry to individual canyons, you will get a similar price to our program. But most importantly, we offer much more. Our program differs from other agencies in that it lasts at least two days and we take you through more than one canyon. Additionally, our approach is not to go through the canyon as quickly as possible (so that we could go again with another group right away). We are in no hurry and we try to pass on our knowledge and expertise to you during the trip. What we offer you is COMPREHENSIVE CANYONING. We are with you even outside the canyon itself, whether we pass on other canyoning know-how or go out to dinner together.
For children above 10 years of age, canyoning is great fun. We just prefer not to mix our younger guests (up to 15 years) with normal groups. They usually need more attention and more help, which we are happy to give. But this can slow the whole group down and others might not be so happy about this. For this reason we provide trips with children only in our program PRIVATE CANYONING
If you are afraid of jumping, you don't have to. Every jump can be done with the rope. Also, we only jump when we know it is safe. It is our favorite part of canyoning. Usually at the beginning even small jumps can be an adrenaline rush, but you will get used to it quickly.
No problem. The neoprene suits will make you float. And canyons are more like springs with pools than big, powerful rivers.
The hardest part is usually a circa 35 minute long approach to the beginning of the canyon. If you really feel that you’re not in the best shape, choose the program for three days with one canyon per day.
That can be a bit of a problem. If you are shaking one meter above the ground maybe canyoning won't be your cup of tea. On the other hand, canyoning is about pushing the limits and getting out of your comfort zone, to see the unseen and feel alive. The worst feedback we ever got was: guys this is not for me, but I am happy that I went with you and tried it at least once.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. At the beginning we’ll teach you the right technique and we’ll belay you for extra safety.
The neoprene suit provides excellent protection. Imagine wrapping yourself in a yoga mat. It’s something like that except you can move easier. We also provide pro-canyoning shoes with an anti-slip sole.
If we approach canyoning with respect, the risk is minimal. Driving in a car is probably more dangerous.
