Helicopter Canyoning Tessin
The Swiss Tessin is rightly called a canyoning Eldorado. Nowhere else in Europe is there such a density of spectacular canyons. The trademark of the gorges in Tessin, is the deep-cut granite, the crystal-clear water and the variety of jumps and slides. The tours offer jumps up to 18 feet of granite boulders in emerald green pools, a myriad of mega slides and abseiling spots through stunning waterfalls. The helicopter flight to Cresciano Canyon is unique in Europe and one of the highlights of this "best of" canyoning weekend.
Day 1: Arrival to Tessin until 17:00. Welcoming the participants through the Mountain Sports Canyoning Guide, program briefing, equipment check
Day 2: Update abseiling training & canyoning technique in our first canyon, we prepare you for the mega tour
Day 3: Today is the highlight of our weekend on the program. We fly with the helicopter to the entrance of the Cresciano. Here begins our descent through this mega gorge, peppered with rock slides and jumps up to 18 meters. Farewell and homecoming
We recommend an extra night on the 3rd day.
The choice of canyoning tours are planned on site by our canyoning guide based on the current weather conditions.
As with all our tours: Jumping and slides are just an option and not a must, these passages can always be roped off
