Activity description

Family canyoning are canyon hikes suited to children from the age of 7. 
These canyons include all the elements of canyoning except that the jumps are never mandatory. Knowing how to swim is mandatory for obvious safety reasons but also for the children to fully enjoy this activity. The level of the canyoning is adapted to the children's pace. These descents will also be really fun for the parents who wish to discover the island and to enjoy swimming in the wild mountain streams of the island.

Zoïcu family canyoning is a very easy descent, particularly suited to children.
It is however a proper canyoning with all the elements implied by this activity: jumps, slides, zip-lines and abseiling (maximum height: 3m) in an outstanding scenery.
Enough to please all the family and make them want to follow you n the Corsican mountain for new adventures!  

The canyon is 1000 meter high; it is located above the village of Soccia in the Deux Sorru region, right above Vico and Guagno, only a few kilometers away from Ajaccio.

Program
The canyoning activity lasts about 4,5 hours. The jumps are never mandatory and don't exceed 8 meters high. There are not a lot of abseiling (3 max per descent) and don't exceed 15 meters high. However, some abseiling cannot be avoided and are therefore mandatory. The instructor will be there to guide, comfort and belay you.

Canyoning in Corsica is famous all over the world and some sites are super crowded. However, Cédric and Manu take care of choosing quiet routes and times to avoid running into the other canyoning schools and to fully enjoy the wild mountain experience.

Total duration of the activity: approx. 3,5 hours
Approach march: 10 minutes

Activity requirements

You must know how to swim to participate in this activity. 

Children must be at least 12 years old and accompanied by an adult.

Special terms

This cayoning takes place every day during the summer (July, August) and is open from mid-June to September.

It's better if you have shoes with rubber soles and that protect your ankles. 
You will be walking in the river bed, the pebbles are slippery and the stones can be covered with lichen. 

Be careful: the water shoes (such as "jelly shoes") are adapted to the beach but not to the mountain because they don't hold the ankles properly and their sole is not thick enough to walk in the mountains.
The "city shoes" type Converse, Bensimon, etc, that have slippery soles are not advised either.
