Canyoning in Arco at Lake Garda by mountain guides Trentino Dolomites Alps Italy
Our Alpine School Arco was born in the year 1996. At that time many people offered guiding on canyoning trips
without the possession of any professional qualification, training, nor insurance. Nowadays professional
guidance in the canyons is exclusively reserved to the alpine mountain guides by law. This is prudent
because in the canyons the same techniques and rope maneuvers which are typical for mountaineering
activities are also being applied in the canyoning trips. Unfortunately, the phenomenon of abusive
guidance on canyon trips has not completely been eliminated. Make sure that the person who accompanies
you on your trips is an internationally licensed mountain guide registered with UIAGM and third
party liability insurance !

canyoning Italy photos
The Sarca Valley in the region of Trentino Italy came into existence in the glacial period. During the centuries the
brooks have hollowed deep canyons. In this untamed mountain world of Dolomites Alps the sun is passing through the
rocks and playing with the crystal clear waterfalls. The mountain guides Arco are always at your disposal. Our neopren
wetsuits prevent you from feeling the cold and make you experience a unique adventure.
WHO can participate ?
For the participation in canyoneering there is no special physical condition required. It is not even
necessary to know how to swim, however, the participants should be "familiar" with water in order to enjoy and have fun.
In the area of Lake Garda there are several canyons of each difficulty degree (beginner to experienced).
WHAT is Canyoning in Italy ?
We would like to underline that canyoning consists in the
descent (not ascent) of canyons/torrents/waterfalls by means of "abseiling" (belayed on the rope of the mountain guide),
sliding and/or jumping (optional). It is an activity with fun for all participants who want to discover an unknown and
incontaminated world. The entire tour has a duration of ca. four hours (also for the beginners); in order to enjoy more, we
do not advice the half-day trips which have a much shorter duration.
WHO are your guides ?
Nowadays there are many agencies and clubs which are offering tours in the canyons. We would like to point out that -
BY LAW - only licensed Mountain Guides UIAGM are permitted to accompany and guide guests. We strongly recommend
to choose only Mountain Guides for your tour.
Equipment by mountain guides Arco
What the participants should bring along for the trips: dry clothes to change, bathing
costume, towel, trekking shoes or sneakers, an extra pair of shoes to change. We recommend to leave all valuables
and/or what should not get wet in your hotel. This is the equipment which our guides will provide for the canyoning trip: neopren suits
(long sleeves/long legs, similar as diving suit), neopren socks, helmet, harness, life-jacket, rope, carabiners. The
rental of the gear is free of charge. We would like to point out that the participants are wearing their own
trekking shoes during the trip and therefore will get soaked. Therefore it is a MUST to bring along an extra pair of dry shoes to change.
Meeting point at Lake Garda Trentino
Most of our canyons are located along the Western coast of Lake Garda Italy. If our guests are staying in hotels in the area of Riva del Garda, Torbole, Nago etc., we are offering a free
pick-up service with our mini-bus to and from the hotel. Otherwise we agree upon a meeting point which can be reached easily.
INSURANCE FOR CANYONING
Our staff in the Alpine climbing school in Arco consists of nationally and internationally
licensed mountain guides who are registered with the national and international Mountain Guides Association (UIAGM).
They are in the possession of a valid third party liability insurance.
