What does a day in the Riolan out?
The collection point for the canyon is the parking lot at the end (at the bottom) van de canyon. Here we share the material and prepare the cars that drive us up. We have a car with all the dry stuff everyone parked at the bottom are.
We drive about 6 km for the cars we park up.
With 5 descend minutes we are at the foot of this beautiful canyon. Then it is about 20 minute walk through the forest and the water before we attract our equipment and the canyon really begins.
The canyon begins equally spectacular and we have jumped to 9 meter in the prospect. Abseils tot 15 meters high and several slides. All this in a fantastic setting and turquoise water.
