Mauro, an IFMGA certified guide, promises all adventurers great fun and many jumps in one of the wildest gorges of the region.

Not specified

1/2 Day

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




“Rio Nero”, in Italian, means black river. The waters of the Lago Di Garda, near Arco, in the Province of Trento, are surrounded by steep and high rock cliffs. The sun rarely penetrates to the bottom. Over the centuries, the tannins have leached into them, making a transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, resembling tea or black coffee.

It is a fairy tale scenery that I offer you to explore and enjoy over this fun half-day canyoning in Rio Nero. You will dive into a different world through the gorge of the Rio Nero canyon, a Jurassic-like landscape.  The steep cliffs –the longest, of 15 meters, which we will abseil–, the many jumps –the highest, of 7 meters– and the black water will guarantee an unforgettable holiday experience.

Everything you need is not to fear water and a minimum weight of 40 kg, so this trip is ideal for families with teenagers or for a group of friends.

I organize this trip every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 8.00 AM, and Sundays at 2.00 PM.

So, if you are willing to have fun in these unforgettable waters, do not hesitate to contact me! It will be a true pleasure to guide you in this incredible gorge.

About the guide

Certified mountain and ski guide and is directing since 15 years the Mountain School Mmove (former Friends of Arco). In the past, his passion had driven him for weeks to the solitude of the Alps, of Patagonia, or of the icy heights of the Karakorum to climb famous walls and peaks and open up new routes.

Today his priorities have moved. He wants to share his enthusiasm for the mountains - while working with his guests and in his spare time with his sons, as his father has once done with him. Mauro Girardi is very proud on its enthusiastic and highly qualified team of local Mountain-and Ski Guides, Hiking Guides and office employees. Mmove is not just a mountain school, but is a steadily growing circle of friends, who would like to realize great experiences. We like to Mmove it !!

Mmove is the only mountain school in the Alto Garda region with a guaranteed weekly program and activities for all tastes and the whole family.

The team is formed by 8 IFMGA/UIAGM Guides, so if Mauro is not available, one of the other highly qualified members of the team will be the guide.

Gabriel was an excelent guide!! Very friendly, helpfull, calm and relax guide! We really enjoyed the trip. We started with a more easy route on day one to measure our level. On day two and three the difficulty was gradually increased acoording to our skills.

This was a good trip. I joined with my 7y/o daughter who has no climbing experience. She had a good time. Although I am not sure how to change this, from my personal perspective, the trip would have been even better if there would also be a bigger challenge for adults.

My son and I were planning a trip to climb in Arvo, Italy and wanted a good start to our trip so we booked a guide with Explore-share.com, and it was the best thing we did. Lupe and the staff handled every inquire we had, were really professional then ended up hooking us up with MMove based in Arco. We booked a private guide for 3 days of rock climbing and we boosted our grades in those days. Our guide Matteo was bloody awesome, amazing guide who just gets that little bit more out of your. Our grades jumped thanks to Matteo. Day 1 was sport climbing to check what we could do, single pitches and going hard. The afternoon was a multi pitch. Then for day 2 and 3 we pumped out multi pitch after multi pitch. Best 3 days of climbing in a long time. My Son went from grade 15/16 to leading 23's. This 3 days started our trip and gave us the confidence to go on climbing for another 2 weeks. Thanks guys for an amazing wicked time We will be back soon
