The Pyrenees

BarrancsPirineus

The Pyrenean basin offers a wide range of canyon descents for every level, in canyons or rivers with a distinct geological formation either of limestone, conglomerate, granite or schist. From the banks of river Aragón to the more technical descents of the Eastern Pyrenees or the north face of the French Pyrenees. Based at Vall de Boí, in the central Pyrenees, we can approach any of the classical Pyrenean descents within a day. If you prefer, we can also stay at the chosen area for two or more days so we can unveil other Pyrenean valleys for you.

 

When: May to October
Where: The Pyrenees
Activity: Canyoning
Price: from 45€ to 60€ per participant, depending on the technical difficulty of the chosen canyon.

Sierra de Guara

BarrancsGuara

At GUIES DE TAÜLL we offer you the possibility of getting to know the authenticity of the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara and Cañones de Guara, in the Pre-Pyrenees of Huesca, the Mecca of canyoning at European level;

The warmest of waters, the best temperature of the Pre-Pyrenees and a large concentration of canyons in a relatively small area (about fifty canyons within less than an hour drive), make Sierra de Guara, the perfect paradise for the practice of canyoning.

A two-hour drive away from Vall de Boi, we can get to Guara (Alquezar,Bierge Rodellar) in the day or, if you prefer, we can also go for a short stay of two or more days: we can provide you with all the necessary information about the area.

 

When: April to October
Where: Pre-Pyrenees. Sierra de Guara.
Activity: Canyoning
Price: from 45€ to 60€ per participant, depending on the technical difficulty of the chosen canyon.

Dark gorges that end up leading us to the sea, pink granite slides, rappelling over more than 200 meters of volcanic verticality, trips to the center of the earth.
