One of the most fun and exciting activities you can do in Asturias, is Canyoning. Being surrounded by a sttuning setting at the same time you are rapelling, or going down natural slides, is what makes it so successful.

The activity is done near “Picos de Europa” National Park, in the high part of the “Sella” and “Cares” rivers, in Asturias. “El Vallegón”, “Carangas” and “Viboli”, in Sella river valley or “Rubó” and “La Molina” in Cares river valley, are the options you have got.

Which of those canyons arer you going to do? It depends on the level of difficulty and the weather conditions. Our Mountain and Canyoning guides will decide it. They also will be and help you at every moment. The activity will be done with all safety measures needed.
