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.
