The heli-canyoning trip is probably the best canyoning tour in the world. You'll start with a short but spectacular helicopter flight from the Lodrino airbase to the landing zone at an elevation near 1200 meters.
You'll actually fly below the level of the canyon walls, and you’ll catch a glimpse of the excitement to come. Once you begin to descend you will find a huge variety of abseils, the longest of which is 45 metres in length. You'll also slide through natural chutes and experience jumps of 16 metres into narrow fissures with crystal clear pools.
This is a long and varied canyon, one of the best in a canyoning region known throughout the world. The actual time in-canyon is about 6-7 hours.
Please note: Actual trip start time may vary depending on the schedule of the helicopter company.
