Canyoning route in the river Vione at Tignale, on Lake Garda
The canyon is in Tignale, on the west coast of Lake Garda, in the river Vione; it’s very wide and sunny: it is the warmest of the area and pleasant even in autumn or spring. In summer, during dry periods, the water could be low
The route is lots of fun, reasonably easy, full of jumps and slides, never too demanding.
This canyon is suitable for kids and families too, most of the jumps are of an easy level for everyone and the more cautious can be lowered by rope.
The canyon of Vione divides in two parts: upper and lower. If you have already done some canyoning you can try the complete Vione which is double in lenght compared to this, the normal route.

No, you don’t need to be able to climb.
Jumps are not obligatory, if you don’t want to do them you can be lowered by rope, the same goes for the slides.
No, you only need to be able to float aided and not be afraid of water.
Yes you should arrive already wearing one. You also need to bring a towel, a dry change of clothes and a spare pair of shoes to put on when the canyoning is over.
No, because everything will get completely soaked, anything you take with you once we leave the minibus has to stay with you until the end of the canyoning. There is no possibility of leaving things along the route.
It is better not to unless they are absolutely necessary. We recommend to go canyoning without, if you can see sufficiently without glasses. If you really do need to wear glasses you have to take them off and put them in your wetsuit for jumping and sliding into water. The glasses must have a cord in order to avoid losing them. A more suitable option is contact lenses.
Better not to wear anything valuable. If you should loose something it is impossible to find it again in a torrent with rushing water. Also these objects can settle on the bottom hidden by stones.
For canyoning you need a 5mm wetsuit, neoprene shoes, a seat harness, a life vest and a helmet. I provide all of these things. When you sign up for a canyoning experience we need to have the list of participants with their name, height, weight and shoe size of each one.
On request you can rent non slip shoes suitable to wear in water for 3 €.
Everything gets soaked but not ruined.
Yes you will be soaked including your hair because your descent takes place in a river inside a canyon.
From April to October, on request
