Discover the Canyon du Ziocu in Soccia
The Canyon du Ziocu (or Zoicu) is located in Soccia, 1h45 from Ajaccio and an hour from Sagone. You will discover a complete site with waterfalls through a technical and narrow canyon. This canyon consists of two parts, an open and playful first part with jumps between 2 meters and 8 meters (which are not mandatory), passing from pools to pools through natural water slides or by jumping. All while being in a completely different setting.
Aquatique Hiking in the Vecchio
Since summer 2018, Cors'Aventure has been offering a full-day aquatic hiking tour in the Vecchio River near Vivario for the months of July and August. A favorite for this new activity in a preserved and very little frequented setting.
Unlike canyoning, aquatic hiking is done without ropes or rappelling. You will follow the course of the Vecchio alternating between swimming (floating), toboggan descent, and jumps into the river to be done according to your will. In the middle of the day, the team stops to eat by the river with picnics kept all along the descent in waterproof canisters.
The group is made up of a maximum of 12 people with equipment of wetsuits, helmets, and shoes.
