Discover Corsica

The Verghellu Canyon

The Verghellu is one of the most complete and amusing canyons that Corsica has to offer. Everything is brought together so that the shared experience is fun while remaining accessible to everyone (initiation level canyon). In 4 hours, all of the elements of canyoning are brought together: dives, toboggans, rappel and a long zipline. This is a mountain canyon where the clear water will amaze those who love nature.

No jump is mandatory. We remind you that canyoning is a sport of white water. Thus, to know how to swim is compulsory.
