New ! Aquatic hiking in the Vecchio river
Since summer 2018, Cors’Aventure proposes an aquatic hiking in the vecchio river, not far from Vivario, during July and August. This full day excursion is a fan and guide favourite since its creation ! The wild and preserved environment, mixed with the fact that almost nobody come to this river, makes it a "do not miss" while visiting Corsica.
Contrary to the pure canyoning activity, aquatic hiking does not require the use of ropes, which means there are not rappels or ziplines. You are descending the river by swimming, walking into the water, doing the slides and jumping into beautiful pristine ponds. In the middle of the day, we will stop for a lunch box by the river with your own lunch box that we will take with them into waterproof containers that we provide.
The group is composed of maximum 12 all equiped with a neoprene outfit, helmet and a pair of sneakers (or canyoning shoes rental).
