Canyoning Riu Pitrisconi

Canyon Riu Pitrisconi

« 1 of 5 »

The Canyon Riu Pitrisconi is by far the most enjoyable and refreshing summer activity in Sardinia. The canyon is as beautiful as it could be, immersed in a wild landscape shaped by curvy granite rocks and adorned with flowery oleanders. Riu Pitrisconi has a modest flow of water, even during the peak of summer, and the surrounding hills are covered with pine woods and oak trees.

From the first abseil the itinerary never leaves the riverbed, alternating a series of abseils and jumps on very deep pools of clear water. While the most adventurous participants can enjoy jumping, our guides lower the rest of the group without any pressure.

The Riu Pitrisconi is accessible to beginners and families too (minimum age is 8). No need for equipment or technical skills, our guides take care of all manoeuvres, supervising the entire group and guaranteeing .

Reaching Riu Pitrisconi

From our meeting point in Badualga (near San Teodoro) we will drive about 20 minutes on a dirt track to reach the park Monte Nieddu. From our parking area it only takes 2 minutes to reach the canyon.
