Canyoning in the Dardu, between the mountains and the sea among the Calanches of Piana
And here, ladies and gentlemen, we see the Calanches (Calanques) of Piana, the narrow winding mountain road, the vertiginous ocher cliffs falling steeply into the sea at sunset, the “heart hole”, the lion rock … oh, and what a surprise to see a group of people in wetsuits leaving the road at the little bridge! This is one of the most beautiful and most technical descents the island has to offer to bring you down to the sea. The extraordinary pink granite formations provide constant stimulation for the imagination. In this breathtaking scenery, multiple abseils of up to 35m, sometimes passing under waterfalls, make up the technical part of this canyon. However there are also some – often epic – jumps and waterslides which bring a playful feel to this beautiful excursion.
