Type of Trip



  • Visit the Verghellu Canyon packed with thrilling activities.

  • The stunning canyon is accessible to everyone.

  • Feel the sparkling mountain water that feeds the valley of Verghellu.


The Verghellu Canyon is one of the most complete and lively canyons that Corsica has to offer.

Lying in the Verghellu Valley, the canyon is located between the communes of Venaco and Vivario.

All the elements of canyoning are brought together and are packed into one canyon. And its easy accessibility makes this action-packed canyon suitable for everyone.

We will dive, toboggan, rappel and experience tyrolean traverses in an adrenaline-fuelled half a day.

As a mountain canyon, Verghellu is home to sparkling, clear water that will fascinate as we explore the region.

Because Verghellu is an initiation canyon, it doesn’t demand prior experience, making it great for family trips. Children aged 10 years old and above are able to participate on the trip.

With 4 hours of action-packed activities, it is recommended that potential participants are in good physical condition. And because the canyoning is a white water sport, it is necessary to know how to swim.

Reserve your canyoning experience in the beautiful Corsican valley of Verghellu, home to a widely diverse canyon waiting to be explored.

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!
