Canyoning Vione

The sunny gorge of Rio Vione is one of the most popular canyoning tours on Lake Garda

Request more info  

The scenery of the canyon Vione is sunny and friendly and the water is uncommonly warm. The canyon is already in Lombardy and attracts with lush green vegetation alternated by narrow passages and deep, emerald green pools of water.  There are plenty of opportunities for sliding and jumping. Just a small damper: during the summer the canyon Vione is often not accessible due to lack of water.

  1. All participants are taken by our minibus from Arco, Torbole or Riva del Garda to Tignale to get changed. Wetsuits and technical equipment will be provided by us. 
  2. Afterwards all participants walk about half an hour by foot to the starting point of the tour.
  3. The beautiful, shimmering pools are perfect for sliding, jumping or spectacular abseiling.
  4. At the end of the tour everyone reaches the van within a few minutes by foot and changes clothes.

The gorge is divided into two parts. The upper part, Canyoning Vione I, is suitable for everybody, newcomers and families. It is particularly attractive at the beginning of the season, when the water’s temperature compared to other torrents is warmer and more pleasant.

The second part, Vione II,  requires an increased ability and the required level is a bit higher. Until we reach the more difficult section which runs out directly into lake Garda…which section will you choose? You can speak to the Mmove Mountain Guides and together decide which section you can tackle according to your abilities.

  • 20-30 mins approach on foot
  • Open and sunny environment
  • Exciting slides of varying lengths
  • Open and sunny environment
  • max abseil: 10 metres
  • Please note: Nobody has to jump - if you are unsure, you will always be roped down by the mountain guide.
  • Certified UIAGM mountain guides with canyoning specialisation accompany the tour and guarantee maximum safety.

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.
