About this trip
Our Heli-Canyoning trip is probably the best canyoning tour in the world. We start with a short but spectacular helicopter flight from the Lodrino airbase to our landing zone at an elevation near 1100 meters. We actually fly below the level of the canyon walls, and you’ll catch a glimpse of the excitement to come. Once we begin to descend you will find a huge variety of abseils (max. 45m), slides through natural chutes, and jumps (max. 16m) 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.
