Canyoning in Aosta Valley
In the Aosta Valley we have several mountain torrents. "Chalamy" which is an easy but varied descent or the "Fer" which is more technically difficult.
Chalamy starts with a 20 mt. rope descent and then there is an opportunity to do some small jumps which helps to build ones confidence. Then the descent of the torrent commences, the jumps become higher and higher (not obligatory) and there are several natural rock slides.
Prices and programs may vary depending on the program you want to do.
Chalamy: 60 Euro min 4 people, max 10 people
Fer, Brenve, Pacoulla, Bouro, Clavalité: 80 Euro min 4 people, max 6 people
It is possible to take part in this activity for a weekend or for longer periods. We recommend Canyoning in Val Roya
(France), a few kilometres from Ventimiglia and Mentone.
Week end Vallée de la Roya (France) and Rocchetta Nervina (Ventimiglia): 160 Euro min 5 people, max 8 people.
Canyons must be approached with respect and without undervalueing their innate dangers hence this activity is supervised by fully qualified guides who have undergone specialised training.
Mountain Experts will supply wetsuits, harnesses, helmets and any other technical materials needed for the activity.
You will need a swim suit, a pair of shoes that you are happy to wear in the water. Preferably trainers or trekking shoes/boots.
