    It is my pleasure to invite you to a unique canyoning trip in Rio Verde. It’s a great canyon for all ages and levels. Furthermore, I think it’s the perfect place to get a first approach to such an exciting outdoor activity.

    The world of canyoning is really amazing and Rio Verde is a spectacular gorge of Granada to live it to the fullest. It is a canyon that provides all the security elements to guarantee a safe experience.  

    In addition, I love to take my clients to this canyon because:

    • Rio Verde Canyon is an outstanding place of Andalusia;
    • It’s a big chance for abseiling, jumping and sliding down canyon slopes;
    • Amazing waterfalls, natural pools and landscapes;
    • You’ll take a digital album capturing the best moments of the trip;
    • The best guidance with all the safety gear.

    Summarizing the itinerary, this guided canyoning day consists in picking up from your accommodation and taking you to the entrance of the Rio Verde gorge. Then, we will spend some time walking across mixed terrain until we get to the Rio Verde Canyon starting point. And here the best comes! We’ll do some sliding, jumping, rappelling and, why not, some swimming. It will be super fun!

    After a few hours we will be at the final part of the canyon enjoying a deserved rest and recovering energies in a local restaurant of the area. This great experience finishes with a relaxing ride back to central Granada.

    As said, Rio Verde is a canyon with no technical difficulties so it won’t be necessary any prior experience. Besides that, it will be my pleasure to teach you the basic skills of canyoning along the way. We will have a very good time together. Please remember to wear hiking boots and comfortable clothes.

    For further information or if you want to book your place, please contact me now. As a passionate about canyoning I will be happy to lead this adventure in a place I know better than anyone!

    About the Guide


    I'm a lover of adventure sports, with 23 years of experience in almost all its modalities. My passion is climbing, although my profession is more focused on another of my passions: the canyoning. I'm ICOpro Instructor (the only one in Spain), which allows me to join my two passions, sport and teaching.
    I have climbed and done canyoning in many countries of the world like Indonesia, Morocco, Argentina, France, Switzerland and India. And what my travels have truly taught me is that what really matters is the people and what they can teach me. I learn from each of the people I lead and I love that.

    Es hat wirklich viel Spaß gemacht! Und auch wenn ich etwas ängstlich bin, habe ich mich immer sicher und in guten Händen gefühlt. Die Sprünge sind wirklich nicht verpflichtend, aber die Gruppe (\"La Familia\") hat mir Mut gemacht und ich habe mir alles zugetraut :) Man kann auch immer erst einmal schauen, wie es die anderen machen ;) Die Guides geben einem stets die Möglichkeit, einen anderen Weg zu gehen. Das war jedoch nicht nötig. Wichtig: Unbedingt die Packliste ansehen! Schuhe für\'s Wasser sind verpflichtend und Wechselschuhe für danach sind wirklich gut. Wenn der Van geparkt hat, geht\'s in Badesachen etwa 45min bergauf bevor man die Wetsuits anzieht und das Canyoning startet. Good to know: Die Guides haben eine wasserfeste GoPro dabei, um Fotos von der Tour und der Gruppe in Action zu machen ;)

    More information required from Rafa before the trip - we did not know that we would have to drive for 30 mins off-road to get to the start point. We were in a hire car and I was very concerned about damaging the car. We also had 21 people in our group - this is far too many. The trip took about 7 hours because we moved so slowly with so many people.
