EQUIPMENT

Canyoning seems like an “extreme” sport, but it is quite safe when done with trained tour-guides and the right equipment. The small team of SwissChallenge in Cresciano has been guiding groups through Ticino’s canyons for 14 years; they are certified with the label “Safety in Adventures”. SwissChallenge’s house canyon is the Boggera Gorge, a sunny fun-canyon with exceptionally beautiful rock formations bristled with several abseiling places of no more than 22 meters and many chutes and jumps into emerald green water of up to 10 meters. Where to stay? Ostello Cresciano is the perfect place to spend the night.
