VAL BODENGO

VAL BODENGO THE CANYONING PARADISE

 

Val Bodengo is a lateral valley of Valchiavenna and  thanks to the river Bodengo, is one of the most famous areas in Europe for canyoning.

 

 

Canyoning in Val Bodengo, started in the 90 and consists of travelling in deep canyons using a variety of techniques such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling and swimming. The Val Bodengo offers three itineraries (Bodengo 1,2,3) with different levels of difficulty. 

 

 River Boggia, in Val Bodengo, is one of the most famous canyoning destination of Europe.

 

Although everyone can try this sport, we recommend this activity with a certificated mountain guide. Canyoning is also possible in other rivers of this area of Valchiavenna.
