Activity description

Rio Verde attracts an ever-increasing number of nature lovers and adventure sports enthusiasts! Explore the beauty of this region on this breathtaking canyoning excursion.

Our guides offer you three different options to explore the Rio Verde Canyon. Depending on the difficulty you are looking for, there is an option which will be perfect for you. 

The lower section of Rio Verde Canyon is suitable for those with no experience as well as for those who already have done some canyoning before. It is the most popular option offered by the team.

The middle section is suitable for those who are in a good physical shape or who have some experience canyoning already and who are looking for a slightly more intense excursion.

Finally, the full Rio Verde Canyon excursion is perfect for adrenaline junkies with some experience in canyoning or in good physical condition. This excursion consists of a full descent of the Río Verde, in which you will begin in the Cabrerizas Fountain, and then you'll make your way until you arrive at the end of the lower section known as Junta de los Ríos.

If you're looking for an unforgettable experience during your stay in Andalusia, canyoning in Rio Verde is the right choice for you! Conveniently located in Otivar, you can reach the meeting point from Costa del Sol, as well as from the main cities nearby (Malaga, Granada, Marbella).

La gola è veramente molto bella e le foto che la illustrano sono realistiche. La discesa è lunga e varia e consente il divertimento sia ai principianti sia a coloro che hanno più esperienza e vogliono osare salti da altezze notevoli.

Great activity

Did a full day canyoning experience. Must do with Nuri! And must do full day (9am-4/5pm)! We drove a 1/2 hour up the mountain (Nuri is an amazing driver) to skip a two hour hike up. Then hiked it down for another half hour to get to the gorge with our gear. We'd jump and climb down with gear. Highest jump was 9m near the start of the trail. Gotta have good form! Not many people at the first half of the day until lunch. After lunch there were a lot more groups! Luckily we had Nuri who overtook the others. It was only 3 of us with Nuri and her friend which might have helped. Am going to look for canyoning everywhere I go now!
