Canyoning Alcantara River

Excursion overview

With this Canyoning excursion, the Body Rafting Alcantara team will take you to the most inaccessible and wild part of the majestic Alcantara Gorges and of the entire botanical and geological park that is just a few kilometers from Taormina and Giardini Naxos. Using ropes, carousels and carabiners we will descend from the canyon walls in a pristine stretch of the river Alcantara and using a mixture of body rafting and river trekking techniques we will begin an adrenaline descent until you get over the beautiful pool of Venus, and finally between jumps , swim and slips we will reach the final part of the canyon. Canyoning is one of the most fun and adrenaline activities you can ever do during a holiday in Sicily.

The price includes: Thecnical Equipment.



Our adventure begins with the dressing; after wearing our technical equipment in five minutes by car we will reach the starting point along the canyon of the Alcantara gorges, from here we will begin to descend along the walls up to the river, next we will begin to descend along the river for about one and half  hour between jumps, swims and once again we'll use ropes once. Once arrived above the pool of Venus we will dive and in twenty minutes using our  body as a raft we will reach the final point of our excursion. The total length of the journey is three kilometers that we should be able to cover in two and a half hours. Returning to our base we can relax and enjoy a refreshing drink.

Canyoning requires a minimum level of fitness and some strenght in your arms.
