Caving and Canyoning in Valporquero consists of descending through ravines and natural obstacles such as waterfalls, lakes, jumps and slides but inside a cave. It combines different experiences to be able to live a real adventure in just one day.
You can enjoy the crystal clear water of the underground river and observe the stalactites and stalagmites of Valporquero cave, one of the most important tourist caves in Spain.
Not only that, but we will also go into the La Folfoguera waterfall, located in the heart of the Los Argüellos Biosphere Reserve, with waterfalls up to 25 metres high.
Does that not sound like much? If you are one of those who love adventure and need more, you can choose the extra "Caving and Canyoning through Sima de Perlas", a variant of the cave considered the most spectacular.
Ready? Put on the helmet we started! This is how the adventure will be:
To go caving and canyoning in Valporquero you do not need previous experience. However, if you choose the extra "Caving and Canyoning in the Sima de Perlas" you must have previous experience in rappelling.
