Day Adventures in Spain

Spanish Side of the Border

Choose from the Via Ferrata and Canyoning. A via ferrata (Italian for "iron road") is a protected climbing route found in the Alps and certain other locations. The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall. Canyoning, involves the use of mountaineering techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, swimming and white water skills to successfully descend a canyon, canyons can be anything from a steep wide open river, to a deep narrow slot canyon only a couple of feet wide.

Although you need to be reasonably mobile and able to swim. We provide all the technical equipment including wet suits, harnesses and helmets.

Rio Verde
Although there are numerous canyons in the area by far the most dynamic and aesthetically pleasing is Rio Verde, with its crystal-clear waters, pristine pools and flowing cascades it is well worth the effort. Which is why this is the advanced canyon that we offer. A three-hour drive from Gibraltar we would set off early in order to complete the activity and be back that evening.
