Verzasca Valley: 4-Hour Canyoning in Corippo

1. Verzasca Valley: 4-Hour Canyoning in Corippo

The tour begins with a leisurely 15-minute ascent where you can admire beautiful Corippo, known as the village with the fewest inhabitants in Switzerland. After leaving the village of Corippo behind, you approach the Corippo Valley to begin canyoning through the Verzasca Valley.  After the safety briefing, you will start immediately with a slide of 30 feet. This canyon in particular is ideal for families and large groups with braver and less brave people. Each descent offers the possibility of slowly rappelling down, or for the more courageous, the rappelling points become slides up to 50 feet with jumps up to 30 feet into emerald-green pools. As you continue deeper into the canyon, you’ll eventually reach pathways no more than 6-feet wide for a true canyoning experience. After about 1.5 hours in the gorge, you’ll jet down the last slide that leads directly into Lake Vogorno. After swimming across the lake, it’s up to you what to do — you can visit a traditional Swiss Ticino Grotto restaurant, or head back to your car with a 15-minute walk.
