The upper part of Malvaglia is one of the easiest canyons in Switzerland and ideal for breathing in some canyon air. The bright, open area makes for relaxed canyoning fun. It includes some stretches that are walked. The two spots for rappelling are not terrifyingly high, but they occasionally lead directly into clear water; the water slides give one a first impression of the various formations. The jumps are the clear highlight of this adventure. With about three hours of pure “canyon time”, this tour is well suited for canyoning beginners.
The lower part of the Val Malvaglia Canyon is deep, wet and challenging. Here one experiences action-packed rappelling and various techniques in a classical canyon. While it is the ultimate jump-canyon in the upper part, the lower Malvaglia turns into an increasingly difficult, adventurous canyon with spectacular spots for rappelling. Many narrow crevices, deep, bizarre sinkholes, and immense washed out formations in the beautifully grained rock define the canyon.
Some canyoning experience, or at least experience in rappelling, physical fitness and a good head for heights are required: The final rappelling spot is 80 amazing meters high and located on a vertical rock face directly adjacent to a gushing waterfall.
Adventure, action and adrenaline – not just in the brochure!
