Type of Trip



  • Action-packed canyoning experience in the heart of Corsica.

  • Sense the thrill of diving, tobogganing, rappelling and traversing.

  • Fantastic experience that is easily accessible for most people to participate.


In the heart of Corsica is one of its most famous canyons. The Richiusa Canyon offers a pleasant descent surrounded by great landscapes.

The canyon lies in the Migliarella mountain range close to the sleepy commune of Bocognano. We will experience the stunning scenery combined with the joys of canyoning, including diving, tobogganing, tyrolean traverses, and rappelling up to 10 meters.

After a 45-minute walk we will then descent for 3 hours, taking in the beautiful surroundings. The total duration of the trip will be approximately 4 hours.

Because this is an initiation level canyon, it doesn’t demand any prior experience, making it ideal for a fun day out with the family. Those 10 years old and older are welcome to participate. However, to make the most out of the canyon, it is recommended that potential participants have a good level of fitness. In addition, as canyoning is a white water sport, it is necessary to know how to swim.

There’s no need to worry about the technical equipment as we will provide this. Harnesses, helmets, wetsuits, backpacks and waterproof totes are all provided.

Reserve your place in the stunning Corsican setting of the Migliarella mountain range and spend half the day canyoning in the famous Richiusa Canyon.

What People are Saying


I booked my canyoning tour well in advance, received confirmation via email and text. The day of our tour, we drove two hours to the meeting place. 15 minutes after the scheduled meeting time, we got a call from the guide saying the tour was cancelled due to projected rainy weather. She said that she had tried to contact us that morning, however we received no prior emails/ texts/ calls. She promised a refund, it has been two weeks since then and I have still not received a refund after emailing them twice. Very disappointed

We did the Richiusa canyon in July 2018 with Canyoning Corse. Super service from the very beginning. We emailed them our enquiry to go canyoning and they replied within 30 mins and in English too ( a bonus in the mainly French speaking Corsica)! Their emails were polite, welcoming and informative. They fitted us in on the day we wanted and provided all necessary details. On canyoning day we were met by our instructor on time in the easy to find meeting spot. Our instructor was friendly, competent and a great leader. The canyoning experience itself was excellent. The nature was brilliant and after our long walk to the top of the canyon, the descent was fun and full of action the whole time. The Richiusa Canyon provided a good challenge without being scary, with the most beautiful rock pools and water ever!
