Get ready to spend an adventurous day in the Italian canyon and avoid the crowds.

Have you already explored the canyons in the Soča Valley in the past and want to discover something new on your next visit to Bovec? Are you wondering what kind of water adventures are hiding just across the border? If so, then Rio Ronc canyoning, which is a real treat for all water sports and nature enthusiasts, will be perfect for you.

Rio Ronc Canyon

This charming but insanely fun canyon is located in Resia, a fairytale alpine valley in northeastern Italy, about an hour's drive from Bovec. It is surrounded by breathtaking nature and crystal clear pools, which are a real feast for the eyes and will undoubtedly get your blood pumping. The highlight of the Rio Ronc canyon is definitely the 20-metre descent down the rope under the watchful eye of our experienced guides, which is like a cherry on top of this unforgettable Italian adventure.

About the Rio Ronc Canyoning experience…

We gather at our base, which is located 200m outside Bovec in the direction of Vršič. At the information point (Planet bar) we complete all the formalities, followed by a presentation of our canyoning guide, who will distribute all the equipment you need to explore the amazing Rio Ronc canyon.

Equipment includes:

  • special canyoning boots
  • thicker wetsuit
  • helmet
  • canyoning harness

After that we drive for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to the entry point, followed by a 40-minute hike in the swimsuits (we recommend that you already have a swimsuit under your clothes). Before entering the canyon, our guides explain safety protocols and the course of canyoning. Then you quickly change into canyoning equipment and you’re all set to embark on a 1,5h adventure, filled with multiple jumps, slides and waterfall descents.

The highest jump we will overcome is 8m, and the highest waterfall measures almost 20m.

You can safely leave all your clothes and personal belongings in the van, which later awaits you at the exit point to take you back to our base.
