We joined the Via Ferrata trip. Diego was a great fun guide. The trip was up a river gorge and a lot of fun. There are a couple of wire bridge crossings and climbing on the rock face which are exciting but very safe.

Besides our own pictures we were able to get a copy of the pictures taken by our guide. Bring a SD card or USB thumbdrive or similar if you want to get a copy of the pictures.

One more thing - they told us the trip was full with only one space left. But the limitation is in the minibus. As we had our own car we just followed the van and were still able to join the trip.

incredible, can't describe, dad went with kids 15 and 14... 10 year might have done it but wanted the others to have the "full experience" bring cash only, no credit cards. hard to find the place to sign up but we did it very last minute which is not usual...

We decided to push the boat out on this one and step out of our comfort zone. Staying in Riva , I thought our holiday would be the normal eating good local produce, drinking fine wine and combining this with a few walks and bike rides.......

The minibus picked us up from our hotel with 2 other couples already on board. There was an instructor and a driver. Fourty minutes later we are up in the dolomites and we pull over in a layby , a sheet is thrown to the floor and we all get changed in the open into our wetsuits , life vest and helmets. Make sure you already have your swimwear on otherwise you'll have your partner holding a towel up for privacy!

Off we all went , over the barrier and dow to the fast flowing stream. The instructor was fantastic , a young chap who spoke just enough English to get by but I had full confidence in him and you really need this as some of the slides and jumps are slightly nerve racking. He knew his stuff and was very organised so I trusted him fully and went with the jumps!

There are different canyoning tours to undertake but most are intended for first timers also.

There are some challenging moments but it is all done in good fun , feels very safe and you are abseiled by the instructor down certain parts that you can't jump or slide down. You have to have a cetain level of physical fitness , be able to swim (not too important as you have a life jacket) and be able to "let go" and have some fun!!

It lasted approx 2 hours and we were both tired when we got back to the hotel but it was well worth it just for the adrenaline rush and the great evenings conversation over a nice meal about our very different day out!

We enjoyed our first canyoning experience so much we can't wait to do it again! We did the integral course and it was excellent plenty of jumps and abseiling which was really fun. The trip was well organised and we were picked up from near our hotel so we didn't need to take the car. The instructors gave us good safety advice and supervised us really well, I felt really safe so I could just enjoy the adrenaline of the adventure, we were well equipped with good quality clean equipment, and had so much fun! An excellent day out and a brilliant memorable experience.
