Fun. Different. Daring. Words to make any break a smash hit with your kids. Making them come true is easy with a day of canyoning in the Catalan Pyrenees, a different way for the family’s youngest members to get in touch with nature.
Sadernes, in the midst of the L’Alta Garrotxa Area of Natural Interest, hides a great spot for your first leap into the world of canyons: Els Estrets de Sant Aniol. Indeed, canyoning experts commonly describe it as a ‘family canyon’.
For anyone aged seven or over
With its turquoise waters, this is a beautiful starter canyon and perfect for a family outing, as anyone aged seven or more can descend it. All the more so when under the watchful eye of an expert guide, who’ll provide you with your gear, explain abseiling techniques and show how to make technical jumps in complete safety. There’ll be more than three hours of activity without a break, starting with a two-metre jump and, later on, leaps from seven metres high. Impressive stuff, right? All it takes is a dash of daring.
You take home an unforgettable experience, not to mention a photographic record of your adventure, provided by the organisers when you’ve finished. Make space in your family album for a fun day out in the country.
The Catalan Tourist Board (CTB) was set up by the Government of Catalonia and is responsible for implementing the government’s tourism promotion policies. It replaced the Turisme de Catalunya consortium, formerly responsible for this work, in early 2010.
