Hey! Just a quick article for you today but its also an awesome one! For those of you who love adventure sports, I am so excited to officially share our canyoning adventure with you! It was my first time ever and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It turned out to be really thrilling and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
What is canyoning??? It’s basically following a river down into a canyon by swimming, walking, jumping, sliding, and abseiling over all the cliffs and rocks. I am a water sport person so I knew I would most likely love this.
We booked our tour through Mmove into Nature and were picked up in Riva del Garda, the northern most city of Lake Garda in Italy. We were shuttled up the mountain to the starting point where we drove past multiple gorgeous, crystal clear lakes nestled back in the trees on the mountain. So much I had no idea existed in Italy!
After getting geared up in our neoprene suits and helmets, we jumped in the river and began our trek. It just so happened that it was also 100 degrees in Italy this week and jumping in the cold water was the perfect escape from the heat. Our guides were so much fun too!
Check out our new YouTube channel here to see the whole adventure with all the crazy slides, jumps, and even a 50 meter abseil at the end! Mmove into Nature is awesome because they have over six different courses so there is something for everyone no matter what level of difficulty you want to try. Now that I’ve got the feel of it, I’m thinking next time I’ll have to step it up and go for an even more extreme course 🙂
Next week I’ll be sharing our sea snorkeling we did while in Italy with another new video!
