ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
La Richiusa, near Ajaccio, is one of the most famous canyons in Corsica. This canyoning is very accessible, even for beginners who will discover all the elements of canyoning in Corsica: jumps, slides, zip line and abseiling (maximum height: 10 meters) in a magical scenery...

The canyon is located in the Migliarella mountain range, right next to the village of Bocognano. You will need a 45 minute-walk to get there and then you are off for a fantastic 3 hour hike! Another great part is that it will only take you 15 minutes to walk back to the starting point. You can use all your energy in the canyon's waters!

Program
The canyoning activity lasts about 4 hours. The jumps are never mandatory and don't exceed 8 meters high. There are not a lot of abseiling (3 max per descent) and don't exceed 15 meters high. However, some abseiling cannot be avoided and are therefore mandatory. The instructor will be there to guide, comfort and belay you.

Canyoning in Corsica is famous all over the world and some sites are super crowded. However, Cédric and Manu take care of choosing quiet routes and times to avoid running into the other canyoning schools and to fully enjoy the wild mountain experience.

How can I assess the difficulty level of the canyons? In order to fully understand the canyon classification in Corsica, you must know the standard framework established by the FFME (Mountain and Climbing French Federation).

- the first one is the passages' verticality ( V ) and the use of the rope. Scale ranges from 1 to 7;
- the second one is the aquatic aspect ( A ) of the passages. Scale ranges again from 1 to 7;
- the last one concerns the passages' dfficulty and the canyon's scope ; scale ranges from I to VI.

Special terms
This cayoning takes place every day during the summer (July, August) and is open from mid-June to September.

It's better if you have shoes with rubber soles and that protect your ankles.
You will be walking in the river bed, the pebbles are slippery and the stones can be covered with lichen.

Be careful: the water shoes (such as "jelly shoes") are adapted to the beach but not to the mountain because they don't hold the ankles properly and their sole is not thick enough to walk in the mountains.
The "city shoes" type Converse, Bensimon, etc, that have slippery soles are not advised either.
