Monte Baldo (Veneto)
May – September
140 € per person
The Vajo dell’Orsa canyon is located in Brentino Belluno, on the east side of the Monte Baldo, not far from Lake Garda.
This is the longest canyon tour we offer: a true adventure only for people who have previous experience at least in shorter canyons. We will start with a one and a half hour walking without a shuttle; in fact we can’t be scared of an uphill path if we want to face such a canyon and everyone knows great adventures always start on foot.
The meeting point is at the church in Brentino; there we will prepare our backpacks with the equipment, food, water and emergency equipment. We will follow the path that leads to the Madonna della Corona sanctuary, first uphill and then on a flat terrain, along the gorge that forms the canyon until we arrive at the starting point of the torrent.
During our descent we will face about 30 abseils, some of them are dry and other in water, the highest abseils are 27 metres high.
The fist part of the canyon is characterised by a gorge not so deep and it alternates between easy abseils, walking in the torrent, crystal-clear water pools and some small jumps.
The midpart is the most spectacular and interesting part of the canyon: 200 metres of rock wall that form a long gorge with many abseils and slides on smooth rocks and clear pools. The canyon becomes deeper, drier and wider. Before the last part we will find a nice place to rest, eat and restore our energy. We will then continue our adventure with more abseils and rock walls until we will finish our unforgettable adventure reaching our starting point.
The meeting point is near Via Santuario, 1 in Brentino Bellunese
