Canyoning in Somosierra Our guide will be waiting for us at the gas station in the Port of Somosierra. With the whole group gathered, he will present the activity and give us the necessary material to enjoy a morning of canyoning in Madrid: full wetsuit, helmet, harness, booties, eight and carabiner, everything ready to get into the water!

group canyoning in somosierra ravine
This descent is located between Somosierra and the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park. Today we will face several rappels, overhangs, jumps, and a 30 feet (9m) long slide! The first part of the activity will be quite horizontal, always in the company of our guide, we will slide down several slopes and make a small jump. We will continue with a rappel that will take us under a waterfall. Smile for the camera! And after the rappel, the most fun part of the day will come, the slide! And what better way to finish it than with a very special last rappel: a flying rappel! Without a doubt a unique experience that will make our adrenaline rush.
waterfall rappelling in a group
Extra option: Long rappel (115 feet/35 meters) If you have demonstrable experience in long rappelling and want a bigger dose of adrenaline, add the extra 115 feet (35m) long rappel to your booking and enjoy the most complete canyoning in Madrid. The 115 feet (35m) long rappel is only done in small groups of 4 people, as it is a high difficulty rappel. All the members of the group must have already done a rappel activity and demonstrate their knowledge of it.
access_time2 : 00 PM
The canyoning activity in Madrid will last half a day, so by lunchtime we will have finished. We propose two options! You can take the opportunity to eat outdoors in Somosierra, after the ravine we will be fresh and it's appetizing ;) Prepare your picnic before leaving home and enjoy the scenery. If you prefer to get your strength back and eat hot, take the opportunity to discover some of the restaurants in the area. The guide knows them all, and will give you the best advice. *If you travel in high season, we recommend you to book a table in advance, just in case :)
