Description

Join me on this one-day adventure climbing a Via Ferrata and abseiling in the scenic Sierra de Guara!

We will enjoy an entire day of climbing picturesque dry canyon walls using the Via Ferata before abseiling back down them and on to the canyon floor.

This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has ever been curious about either of these wonderful activities to try it for themselves. You will spend the whole day learning a variety of techniques, including using the Via Ferrata, abseiling down a wall and aerial abseiling.

The climax of our trip will be reaching the top of our largest vertical ascent, where we will have a sublime panoramic vista of the surrounding mountains as well as the Mascún and Rodellar river valleys.

From here we will descend into the Virgen dry canyon, which will allow you to put all of the new techniques you learned to the test!

At the end of the day, your efforts and perseverance will be rewarded with a refreshing swim into the waters of the crystal-clear Mascún River.

About the guide

I am Spanish, born in Pau. I was raised following the rhythm of canyoning seasons of Sierra de Guara since the 80's, where my father, together with other pioneer guides, put together the first guide companies.

I have been a privileged witness for more than 30 years and I love this sport. I have seen it progress, the evolution of the materials and techniques, the spread around the world, and unfortunately the massification of some of them, victims of their own success... I am nevertheless interested in offering an approach of canyoning guiding that is at the same time simple, transversal and complete. Indeed, beyond safety, the sporting aspect, the commitment, the techniques and the pleasure of adrenalin, I consider it important to take our time, learn and marvel all our senses (and what can be better to do so than such a varied activity combining so many elements in sublime locations), and of course respecting the vulnerable environment that welcomes us...

My favorite canyoning sites are Sierra de Guara, the Pyrénées, Morocco, Mallorca, Slovenia and Italy, but there are also sublime spots in France, New Zealand, Latin America... and all those in my to-do list that I have yet to discover.

I really enjoyed my trip and I think I will remember it for a long time. That is untill I go back and make some new memories:) Which I am sure (and hope) will happen. I learned a lot new things there. Everyone in my group were really nice and friendly people,the only disadvantage for me was that I don't speak french and only a few of them knew some English. So  of course it would have made my trip even more enjoyable if I could communicate to everyone freely, including the guide. But even considering that we did not spreak the same language I was very happy with the guide. He gave us only things he knew we could do and made sure we felt safe at all times. He definitely did a good job on that. I have been telling everyone about this trip and saying it was one of the best I had..
