Going down canyons is one of the sports, or recreational activities, we organize at the Himàlaia Experience hotels. It consists of going down a canyon, aided by ropes, abseils, toboggans, and hand grips. All the time you will be supervised by an experienced guide. He will teach you new techniques which mean you are always learning. You are sure to have an unforgettable experience, and nature is right above you. We ensure the maximum safety level. We offer you the possibility to experience canyons of different grades. Both beginners and those with experience can get the most out of the excursion. 

It is possible to practice this activity in Andorra and in the counties around it: Alt Urgell in Catalonia and Ariège in France. The canyons and ravines are spectacular, high up in the mountains with waterfalls; they are great for abseiling. You will be able to enjoy yourself to the full. Our favorite canyons include Segudet in Ordino, the Bóixols canyon, the Infern (the canyon of hell), Lavansa or Artiga. Our guides are so experienced their knowledge makes a great contribution to this unforgettable experience. 

This activity is available as part of the "Himàlaia Experience" spring and summer activities packs.

Another advantage is that they are really easy to book: whenever you want to come on one of these outings, just let us know when making your reservation, or at the hotel reception giving two day's notice. Then the guides of Himàlaia will give you all the information so you can come along with all the necessary clothes and material for a safe trip.  

You will need some special clothes: they must be comfortable, sports shoes that stand up to the wet, clothes to change into after the descent, swimming costume, towel, sun cream, and any medicine you may need for yourself.
