Get ready for an unforgettable day of canyoning with the Purcaraccia Canyon. The canyon itself does not present any particular difficulties, but walking in the mountains to get there requires a good physical condition. You will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful canyons in Europe, in the heart of preserved nature. Your certified-instructor will be there to help you enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Aiguilles de Bavella, in complete safety!

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our office in Zonza (if you arrive from northern Corsica we can arrange a meeting directly at the canyon location). There, we will provide you with your equipment before taking the cars again to get to the start of the canyon (it takes about 30min). After an approach walk of about 1h (be warned, the walk takes place in the mountains so it is rather physical), we will reach the beginning of the canyon. One last break for the briefing and let the descent begin!
- Tour:
You will need 4 to 5hrs to master this canyon where the fun will not, fortunately, be forgotten. Expect two large 40 m abseils, one along a waterfall, and a series of slides in turquoise water of great beauty. In the middle of the descent, a picnic break will take place to also enjoy the scenery... and catch your breath!
- Arrival:
A 30-minute walk, still in the mountains and with a significant difference in altitude, is to be expected before reaching your car. You can then resume your holiday with your head full of beautiful memories.

A first in canyoning for the whole family: we had a blast, and we took the sport downhill with the two 40m abseils. Yves, our guide, was very calm, very reassuring and very educational. In addition, it had been ten days since the canyon was open only to people accompanied by a guide, so we met the 5 members of our family and a very friendly young couple - who took pictures for us while we had nothing planned, thank you to them-. No one before, no one after, while this place was crowded a few days before. And this canyon is fabulously Ma-gni-fique 🤩😍 It was really a treat for everything 👍 Thank you 🙏
