Canyoning Rio Nero

Fun and adventure with many jumps in the Rio Nero Canyoning Garda Lake Rio Nero

Request more info  


Mystical, exciting and spectacular: In Canyon Rio Nero (Integral) the participants literally dive into another world. Over the millennia, the "black river" has carved its way deeply into the rock, creating a fairytale landscape. Grottos, caves and fantastic rock formations alternate. There is no lack of slides, jumps (but they are not compulsory) or abseiling. The Rio Nero belongs to the top canyoning tours at Lake Garda.

Why Rio Nero?
Thanks to the numerous ways to get out along the river and the more open environment compared to the Canyon Palvico, the Canyoning Rio Nero is well suited for beginners and newcomers. An unforgettable holiday experience is guaranteed for everyone.


  • The participants take our minibus from Arco, Torbole or Riva del Garda to reach our canyoning centre at Passo Ampola and where they get changed. Wetsuits and technical equipment will be provided by us.
  • All participants walk together with the mountain guide for about 20 minutes to the starting point.
  • After the briefing we will take the first jump into the Rio Nero and then hit downhill the river towards the car park where the van is parked.

CANYONING - COVID-19 management

  • All clients must fill in the Covid 19 questionnaire (an email with link will be sent to you when you register) the day before or on the same day of the activity.  
  • All participants should carry with them a face mask to be used when it is not possible to guarantee the maximum distance of 2 m (for eg. When being transported to the activity, during briefing and debriefing…).
  • If the transport service offered is used, any backpacks, bags, towels, costumes etc will be placed in the special single use bag which will be handed to you by the guide when you set off. 
  • Disinfectant gel is available for you, and it is obligatory to use it: when you get on the van, before getting dressed, at the end of the activity and every time we consider it necessary. 
  • You will get dressed outside, technical gear will be handed over to you (wetsuit, watershoes, life jacket, helmet, harness) and is hygienically cleaned and sanified after every single use. 
  • During the approach walk on foot it is important to keep a distance of 2m, or else to wear a mask. 
  • Mmove will supply each participant with a “buff” (neck warmer) to use during the descent in the torrent, and must be used any time when the interpersonal distances cannot be kept (e.g. during jumps, diving, abseiling). 


Any client booking the tour must:  

  • Fill in the Covid19 questionnaire before starting  
  • Have a mask to wear when it is not possible to respect the established distance.
