Ticino canyons are without a doubt one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world! But they also have their disadvantages: the fact that they sometimes have narrow places means that the safety in the gorge is very dependent on the water level and its influencing factors: the amount of precipitation, the snowmelt, dam openings, etc. Safety has absolute priority. Sometimes it is only possible to predict at short notice (1 to 2 days) before the tour whether the circumstances are suitable for the tour. As soon as we are sure whether the tour can take place or not, we will share the information with you!
