Book & Info

Vertical Walls Canyon by the Sierra Nevada Mountains

Trevelez is a really impressive canyoning, unique in Andalusia and located in the Alpujara Granada, on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada. It is unique for many reasons, but highlights that it is a narrow canyon of high vertical walls of slate with a lot of iron content who gives it the appearance of a golden cathedral. Its waters are also of intense earthy colour due to this high ferrous content of the slate.

Intense color waters

It is possible to do this special canyoning trip in September, which is when the thawing season of the Sierra Nevada normally ends. This season fluctuates slightly and our professional canyoning guides will recommend you when is the best time to face it.

Multiple Abseilings for the most experienced ones

This is our canyoning activity of the highest technical level as it has one hour approximation with a good slope, about 14 installations rope, a handrail of 20 meters and another of 8 meters, and due to the narrowness of some of its sections, even with an acceptable flow, requires some agility. The difficulty will vary according to the flow in which we will do it. The Trevelez canyon is suitable for those who have had previous experiences of canyoning and are well acquainted with abseiling.

It is one of the most wanted canyons in our region by canyoning enthusiasts.
