Make a splash on your next holiday. The intricate rock formations of the Ruda Canyon in Corsica Natural Park provide endless canyoning fun. Jump, slide and swim your way through the flowing Golo River.
From the meeting point in the town of Calvi, your guide provides an introduction and safety briefing and a full set of equipment. A free shuttle takes you straight to the massif of Monte Cinto, the island’s highest mountain peak at 2806 m (8878 ft). After a 40-minute walk into wild nature, you come to La Ruda canyon where the journey begins
This descent down the many ravines and gorges offers fun at every turn. You rappel alongside waterfalls, zip down natural rock slides, and jump from as high as 8 m (26 ft) (high jumps are optional). Thanks to an ancient volcanic explosion, Corsica’s landscape provides steep granite valleys and countless waterfalls, making an ideal adventure spot. After a few hours, the group stops for a lunch in the forest and a rest from the action. Learn about the wildlife and mountain landscape around you as you take in the fresh air. Then, continue on for more water exploration.
The end of the 4-5 hours of adventure brings you to an old stone Genoese bridge, a part of the La Scala di Santa Regina, a several-hundred-year-old path through the mountains.
You simply can’t miss a visit to the gorgeous wildlife of Corsica Natural Park. With your adrenaline high and your smile wide, canyoning is the right way to be a tourist.

We completed a full day canyoning with Samuel as our guide. He was really fantastic. Very knowledgeable, kept the flow of movement through the canyon really well and set up abseiling very professionally. We had a great day.
