Activity description

Sierra de Guara is a true heaven on earth for nature lovers. The natural park offers Europe’s most spectacular and unique sceneries. The professional guides of Expediciones offer you the most beautiful canyoning excursions in Sierra de Guara and they will take you to all of the hidden gems in the area.

The location
The Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park is full of hills, cliffs, caves, gorges and canyons. The limestone reliefs were formed as a result of the erosion of natural watercourses, of the rain and the wind. The park hosts a large and diverse range of ecosystems with wildlife well adapted to bioclimatic diversity.  If your lucky, you can find some endemic animal and plant species of the region.

Sierra de Guara is mostly renowned for the canyoning excursions and all kind of adventure activities. The climate and the hundreds of canyons located in the area make Sierra de Guar the perfect spot for canyoning excursions.

Water temperature: Between 14 and 22°, depending on the itineraries in spring and summer
Ecosystem: 20 different raptor species (vultures, kites, eagles…), amphibians (frogs, newts), reptiles (Gekkota, lizards, snakes) as well as many different plants and endemic ones.
Equipment: Neoprene one-piece suit, helmet, approved complete harness (for canyoning)…
Difficulty level: level 2 to 3

Objectives

To explore one of the most canyoning spot in the world!

Itinerary

The day begins with a meeting at the Expediciones camp base. The guide will explain the instructions to you and check the group equipment. Once everything is set, you will be ready to go to the starting point of the excursion; you can either walk or take your car to go there.

A typical day of canyoning lasts between 6 and 8 hours, depending on the chosen itinerary. You will begin with a short walk (from 5 minutes to 2 hours, it depends on your ability to catch up). After a few hours of walking you will have lunch next to a natural pool or on a nice spot.

After the lunch break, you will go abseiling down 30 meters. The rhythm of the activity is quite relaxed; you will have either 3 or 5 hours left. This will be the perfect time to play a few water games, or jump from 10 meters high, to slide on natural slides and to swim in natural Jacuzzis and waterfalls. Following these recreational breaks, you will make your way back to the base camp.

Activity requirements

You have to be able to swim at least on 20 meters.
