Take part of an exhilarating experience near Madrid. Join me on this canyoning program in Cuenca!

I would like to invite you to Portilla Canyon, a fantastic natural area in the Serranía de Cuenca, 200 kilometers away from Madrid. The main attraction of this program will be the number of rappels that we’ll enjoy during the descent.

First of all, we’ll meet at 11 am in Villalba de la Sierra, a municipality in Cuenca. We’ll make all the arrangements for the outing and approach the canyon. To begin, we’ll enjoy a sequence of rappels and get to swim and jump in a beautiful spot.

If you’ve never tried canyoning, this is the perfect chance to start. However, for more experienced participants it’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a nice activity and contemplate amazing views.

So does this canyoning program sound interesting? Then get in touch with me by sending your request. It will be a pleasure to guide you on this adventure.

For more canyoning options, take into account this program that I lead in the Poyatos Canyon, also in Cuenca.

Pedro was so knowledgeable about the area, and graciously answered all our questions, even those unrelated to the hike. He was very kind in picking us up from Madrid for a small fee. He also took a bunch of photos of my husband and I during the trek, which I really appreciated since those are our only pictures together from our trip to Spain. I'd definitely recommend Pedro to anyone traveling to Madrid and interested in experiencing nature outside the city.
