Canyoning in the Río Verde

Canyoning in the Verde River

This nature’s own natural water park with jumps, slides, abseiling, crystal clear water, lots of natural light and very close to Herraura beach in Granada. Accessible to everybody, this gorge instils affection.

The Company offers an excursion to descend the full length of this gorge from the Fuentes de las Cabrerizas to the dam. None of the 7 abseiling parts of the descent are more than 12 metres and many are jumpable. This is one of the most enjoyable activities the company can provide.
