Canyoning Rio Nero with the alpine guide of MMove

Guided tour at Lake Garda in the Rio Nero creek in Val di Ledro

From € 82

Mystical, exciting and spectacular: In Canyon Rio Nero (Integral) the participants literally dive into another world. Over the millennia, the “black river” has carved its way deeply into the rock, creating a fairytale landscape. Grottos, caves and fantastic rock formations alternate. There is no lack of slides, jumps (but they are not compulsory) or abseiling. The Rio Nero belongs to the top canyoning tours at Lake Garda.

Why Rio Nero?

Thanks to the numerous ways to get out along the river and the more open environment compared to the Canyon Palvico, the Canyoning Rio Nero is well suited for beginners and newcomers. An unforgettable holiday experience is guaranteed for everyone.

Who is accompanying you

16a mauro girardi mmove

Nice to meet you, I’m Mauro, International Alpine Guide UIAGM. I live in Arco since 2001 and in that very year I opened my Alpinism school Mmove (former Friends of Arco). For several years I’ve been living amazing adventures from the Alps to Patagonia, till the high peaks of Karakorum, following or opening new routes on these wild peaks. My goal now is to share my enthusiasm for the mountain with my guests.

I’m very proud of all my collaborators and my high qualified local Alpine Guides. Mmove is not just an Alpinism School but also a bunch of friends that wants to give you great experiences. We like to Mmove it!
