Half-Day Canyoning Trip near Italy’s Lake Como (Val Perlana)

A certified mountain guide will take you on a thrilling adventure during this half-day canyoning trip in a lush gorge near Italy's Lake Como.


1/2 Day

Jun - Aug




Experience a surge of adrenaline during this guided canyoning trip in the lush Val Perlana gorge near Italy’s beautiful Lake Como!  This half-day adventure is a thrill-seeker’s dream as you will descend waterfalls and slide your way down an incredible natural toboggan.

Lake Como is the third largest lake in Italy, located in the Lombardy region.  It is the perfect setting for our adventure – we will explore the deep green gorges of the Perlana River, where some of the best canyoning spots in the region can be found.

This is a beginner/intermediate course.  Beginners will need a good fitness level, although previous experience is not necessary.  I am an expert in canyoning safety and will make sure you are safe and secure at all times, so that you can be 100% focused on the adventure at hand.

We meet in front of the Church in the village of Gordona (approximately 1.5 hours from Milan by car).   From there, we will head out to the canyoning site, a gorge on the Perlana River gorge between the nearby towns of Lenno and Ossuccio.  From there, it’s a 40-45 minute trek via a trail that leads us deeper into the forest.  We then arrive at the canyoning site, a  beautiful lush gorge, where we descend the nearby waterfalls.  And to complete the adventure, we have the opportunity to slide down a toboggan, which is natural cave complete with stalactites and a natural pool.  The program lasts 3-4 hours.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
