Canyoning Liguria

Practice Canyoning Liguria where you can find some extraordinary canyons of surprising beauty and the most diverse characteristics.

A varied and eventful landscape characterizes the Ligurian hinterland. A few kilometres from the coast we find hills, mountains and rugged valleys that offer a perfect playground for canyoning.

From Levante to Ponente, a large number of descents are possible.

These routes offer an alternative and fun way to discover little-known valleys and environments, to add new emotions to a holiday or weekend by the sea.

Their location is ‘strategic’ in several respects. In fact, they are well suited either as an intermediate stage in a longer journey for those planning to cross Liguria, or for a sporty, alternative weekend for those coming from neighbouring regions such as Lombardy, Piedmont or Tuscany.

Canyoning Liguria: An adventure among the torrents

Canyoning in Liguria, with its wild nature and breathtaking landscapes, offers a variety of routes for all levels.
Two of the routes we propose, the Rio Prialunga and Rio Lerca, are located near Genoa, in two parallel valleys on the slopes of Monte Beigua. These places offer a wild and isolated environment, yet so close to the city and easily accessible from the highway.

Rio Prialunga e Rio Lerca: Due Esperienze Uniche

The two canyons, Rio Prialunga and Rio Lerca, have very different characteristics. The Rio Prialunga is more technical and challenging, while the Rio Lerca offers a mainly recreational experience. Both routes are characterised by a bright and sunny ambience, where the crystal-clear water pools sparkle like emeralds. These torrents are capable of satisfying every need for those seeking the thrill of canyoning in Liguria.

Rio Bargonasco: A Hidden Treasure

Near Sestri Levante we find the little-known Rio Bargonasco. This route is not too long and easily accessible, but extremely fun thanks to the constant presence of water and some natural slides. It is a perfect option for those who want a two-hour activity that can enliven and vary their weekend.

Rio Barbaira: A Dive into Nature

On the border with France, above the characteristic village of Rocchetta Nervina, flows the Rio Barbaira. This torrent is a true natural wonder, a varied descent where fun and natural beauty come together perfectly. It is a canyoning experience in Liguria that you will not easily forget.

Other streams in Liguria

Many other descents of all levels and durations await you in Liguria for a moment of sport and discovery.

Each torrent offers a unique experience, making canyoning in Liguria an adventure not to be missed.
