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!
