INFORMATION ON CANYONING IN ARCO AT LAKE GARDA ITALY

The Sarca Valley in Trentino Italy came into existence in the glacial period. During the centuries the brooks have hollowed deep canyons. In this untamed mountain world the sun is passing through the rocks and playing with the crystal clear waterfalls. The mountain guides are always at your disposal for every information. Our neopren suits prevent you from feeling the cold and make you experience an unique adventure.

WHO can participate?

For the participation there is no special physical condition required. It is not even necessary to know how to swim, however, the participants should be familiar with water in order to enjoy and have fun. In the area of Lake Garda there are several canyons of each difficulty degree (beginner to experienced).

Information: WHAT is Canyoning ?

We would like to underline that canyoning consists in the descent (not ascent) of canyons/torrents/waterfalls by means of abseiling (belayed on the rope of the mountain guide), sliding and/or jumping (optional). It is an activity with fun for all participants who want to discover an unknown and uncontaminated world. The entire tour has a duration of ca. four hours (also for the beginners); in order to enjoy more, we do not advice the half-day canyon tours which have a much shorter duration.

WHO are your guides ?

In these days there are many agencies and clubs which are offering tours in the canyons. We would like to point out that in Italy - BY LAW - only licensed Mountain Guides UIAGM are permitted to accompany and guide guests on canyoning tours. We strongly recommend to choose only Mountain Guides for your trips.

Equipment for canyoning

What the participants should bring along: dry clothes to change, bathing costume, towel, trekking shoes or sneakers, an extra pair of shoes to change. We recommend to leave all valuables and/or what should not get wet in your hotel. This is the equipment which our guides will provide: neopren suits (long sleaves/long legs, similar as diving suit), neopren socks, helmet, harness, life-jacket, rope, carabiners. The rental of this equipment is free of charge. We would like to point out that the participants are wearing their own trekking shoes which will get wet. Therefore it is a MUST to bring along an extra pair of dry shoes to change.

Meeting point for our canyoning trips

Most of our canyons are located along the Western coast of Lake Garda Italy. If our guests are staying in hotels in the area of Riva, Arco, Torbole, Nago etc., we are offering a free pick-up service with our mini-bus to and from the hotel. Otherwise we agree on a meeting point which can be reached easily.

Insurance for the participants

Our staff in the Alpine School in Arco Lake Garda Italy consists of nationally and internationally licensed mountain guides who are registered with the national and international Mountain Guides Association (UIAGM). They are in the possession of a valid third party indemnity insurance for guiding.
