Itaca Canyoning

What is Canyoning? Definitely an unforgettable experience.

Canyoning Liguria

Hi everybody, this is Marco Peli. Today I am here to tell you about one of my greatest passions, an activity that makes me feel alive and allows me to explore wonderful and fascinating places on our beautiful planet. I am talking about canyoning, or torrentismo in italian.
A passion that I was able to turn into a profession by being able to pass it on to others.
But what exactly is canyoning, you ask? Get ready to discover a world of adrenaline, natural beauty and fun that will leave you breathless!

Canyoning is an experience you will never forget

Canyoning is a sporting activity that consists of following a water course on foot along its most beautiful and inaccessible stretches. Imagine walking, swimming, jumping and sliding along waterfalls and natural pools, overcoming obstacles on the course with the help of ropes and special equipment. It is a unique experience that combines the discovery of extraordinary natural environments with the excitement of an adrenalin-fuelled sporting activity that is fun and accessible to all. It is a perfect mix of sport, adventure and connection with nature.

Who can canyoning?

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But I’m not an athlete, I can’t do that!” Well, you are wrong! Canyoning is suitable for all levels of fitness and ability.
There are beginner, intermediate and advanced courses, so there is something for everyone.
The good guide will be able to both advise you on the most suitable route for each person and be able to adapt the route according to the level of the various participants.
Guides like me, are professionals who combine a high level of technical training with a deep knowledge of the streams where they work to ensure a totally safe experience.

An experience to be faced safely

Speaking of safety, it is important to emphasise that there is no fun without safety. Before starting the activity, the guide will give you all the information on safety and progression within the canyon. You will be given the right information on how to overcome each obstacle and the different possible options. Adherence to these directions by all participants in the descent is critical to a successful outcome of the activity. To enjoy canyoning at its best, you need to be in good health and physical condition, not be afraid of water and, above all, have a positive and adventurous attitude!

Canyoning equipment

As for equipment, you will need a wetsuit, helmet, harness with longes and descender, and suitable shoes.

  • The helmet is essential to protect the head from falls or shocks;
  • The neoprene wetsuit is used to keep the body warm in the water;
  • The harness for the use of ropes;
  • Finally, shoes suitable for walking on slippery ground.

The loan of the equipment is usually included in the price of an outing and is managed by the accompanying guide who maintains it and checks its state of wear and tear.

Why try canyoning

Why should you try canyoning at least once in your life? Well, besides the fact that it is incredibly fun, it is also a great way to connect with nature and challenge yourself. During a canyoning descent, you will find yourself immersed in water, suspended in the void and progressing into the heart of a still little-known and little-visited nature.
It is an experience that allows you to get to know and overcome your limits, to discover what you are capable of and to experience moments of pure joy and adrenaline surrounded by nature.


I promise you that once you have tasted the thrill of diving into a natural pool or sliding down a waterfall, you will never want to go back and you will never get enough!

A motivational group activity

In addition, canyoning is a great activity to do in a group. Whether you are with family, friends or colleagues, canyoning allows you to share unforgettable moments, work as a team and create stronger bonds.
It is an experience that brings you closer to others and allows you to share the joy, adrenaline and beauty of nature.
