Torrent de Coanegra canyoning adventure in Mallorca, Spain

Beautiful walk to the start of the Mortitx canyon (1.5 hours). The canyon itself is not difficult (no really high jumps) but some beautiful slides and the last jump into the blue ocean is phenomenal!

Privately guided rock climbing or deep-water soloing in Mallorca

Had an incredible experience deep water soloing for the first time with Indra (guide) and the Experience Mallorca team. They were able to tailor the program (location/timing) to fit both my availability while on vacation and my climbing ability. We went to a beautiful crag on the eastern portion of the island with a nice mix of difficulty. I considered some of the other available guides in this area, but I'm really glad I chose EM instead. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

Canyoning in the Pyrenees: Ordesa Valley, Benasque Valley

Pau is an amazing guide! He has a super upbeat, happy personality that made the adventure so much more fun! Safety is a priority for Pau, so I never felt in danger. He had all the equipment I needed too! I had an experience of a lifetime thanks to Pau. I will not forget it. If you want a fun, safe canyoning experience, Pau is your guy!

Private guiding in Spain (rock climbing, canyoning and via ferrata)

Carlos is an excellent guide. He carefully structured the trip and was also flexible enough to adapt over the 3 days we spent together. He worked effectively with me to achieve my goals. Highly recommended.

Canyoning in the Estrets de Sant Aniol, Garrotxa (Half-day)

Everything was well-planned. The guide Raquel explained what we needed to do and made sure that everyone understood. The guide provided wetsuits, safety gear, and helmets. We had options to climb and jump, or opt on any climb or jump we didn’t feel comfortable doing. I traveled with my 21 year old daughter, 58 year old husband and self (age 60). This was our first canyoning trip. Beginner level, was perfect for us, and we did well. We loved it and I’m so glad we discovered this amazing sport! We did every jump and climb! Thank you Raquel for your guidance! Also your recommendations for other hiking and touring in the area! We did visit Rupit, Besalu, and São Paulo! I would definitely recommend this to those that are in reasonable good fitness and love the water and jumping into water!

1-day canyoning trip in Río Vero in the Pyrenees

Monica was an excellent guide and did a great job of making all of the trip participants comfortable even after accounting for various experience levels. She offered interesting commentary about the park, and she was also conscious to take good pictures on her waterproof camera. I cannot recommend the trip enough.

Family Canyoning Day in Sierra de Guara

Great area, very well selected canyons (for beginners); indeed other options for more advanced explorers. We liked Gorka's patience, ability to explain and attention to our safety. Gorka also gave us great tips for other trips / activities in the area. Highly recommend Gorka, this area, as well as this trip!

Canyoning day in the Spanish Pyrenees

Carlos was great guide!! Very sweet, fun, and knowledgeable person. Perfect companion for this adventure! The trip included a mix of everything: hiking, climbing, rappelling, cliff jumps, etc. We also began the trip a bit earlier than most and had the canyon pretty much all to ourselves. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
