Canyoning Riu Pitrisconi
The Riu Pitrisconi is by far the most enjoyable and refreshing summer activity in Sardinia. This canyon is as beautiful as it could be and is accessible to beginners and families too (minimum age is 12). It has a modest flow of water all year-round and is immersed on a wild landscape, surrounded by gentle granite hills covered by pinewoods and carved by small rivers.
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 in total safety. No need for technical skills.
It is obvious that all the clothes worn during the activity will get wet. We recommend having a change of clothes to leave in the car and wear after getting back.
At the end of the canyon the group walks 30 minutes on a path to get back to starting point.
Climbing Sardinia provides all the necessary equipment. Participant will receive helmet, harness, floating jacket and a water-proof bag. Depending on weather the group may wear wet-suits of just a bathing suit.
We meet at 11am at this location, which is just 5 minutes south of San Teodoro. From here we drive on a dirt track for 30 minutes to reach the starting point of the canyon
