Children can also have fun during a canyoning tour and the Vecchio Canyon is ideal for them: this descent is more like an aqua hike, where swimming has a special place. Young and old alike will be able to indulge in the joys of canyoning without fear of facing too difficult obstacles: fun, laughter, and sumptuous landscapes await you during this descent!

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We will meet you after the village of Vivario (from Ajaccio): 700 m after the Vecchio bridge, a small car park on the side awaits you, at a headstone. Your state-certified canyoning instructor will provide you with your equipment there. Then, a short 10-minute approach walk is necessary to reach the departure point. Once on site, safety instructions will be provided before entering the canyon.
- Tour:
This river trekking route will delight families, as much for its enchanting scenery as for its route within everyone's reach: with this very aquatic descent, you will enjoy many swimming passages in the middle of fabulous coloured waters that will be punctuated by jumps and various obstacles, but always with great ease or that can be bypassed if necessary.
- Arrival:
Once you reach the end of the canyon, a 20-minute walk awaits you to reach your vehicle.

Very nice surrounding. Beautiful places. The climb up was a bit difficult for our youngest. But it was worth it! Good jumps. Nice glides.

We were able to experience this great experience with our 3 boys. Our youngest son is 8 years old and had a lot of fun. It was a great adventure for the whole family. Price-performance ratio is great....
