Canyoning

Sierra de Guara, the best territory for canyoning or canyoning

The depths of the canyons have remained unexplored for many years. Thanks to this, over time, inhabitants of the mountain range have invented endless stories about witches and spirits that live in the Sierra. The canyon that best represents this mysteriousness is the Mascúun Canyon in the heart of the Sierra, with its name that means 'place inhabited by witches'.

The Frenchman Lucien Briet began to show what was hidden in those deep canyons through photography. In the 1960s and 1970s, French and Spanish mountaineers began to descend through the riverbeds and the first topography of the canyons was created by Pierre Minvielle. At the same time, the practice of canyoning in the Sierra de Guara was born. Today, the mystery and landscape of the rivers are shared with all visitors to the Sierra.

The Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park is considered the homebirthplace of canyoning in Europe and worldwide and has more than 60 sports canyons.

Canyoning is an activity that combines fun andfun, sports with nature and adventure.

Visitors who practicedo this sport will descend down the river bed overcoming obstacles created by the erosion of hundreds of years of flowing water. 

The canyon’s obstacles are overcome by jumping, swimming, rappelling and diving.

Canyoning has many levels depending on the type of canyon. To do this sport, you must be over the age of 7seven, be physically fit, and always accompanied by a professional guides.
