The symbol of Alquezar

With an atmosphere of the Grand Canyon of Vero, it is the most popular descent in Alquezar. Its cliffs sculpted by the water welcome us as soon as we arrive at the town and extend 8 km upstream.

The walls full of covachos and shelters excavated by erosion for thousands of years stand out in the landscape of this canyon. Some of them were in prehistory a place of refuge for man who has left his mark on the landscape through cave paintings, many of which can be visited today.

The descent of the Vero allows us to visit the places of this impressive canyon, through a water descent whose permanent flow makes it possible to enjoy it throughout the year.

During its tour, jumps, siphons, block chaos, dark, down-climbs, natural slides, narrow passages, rapids and water trekking are combined. Many of these steps are avoidable if desired.

Despite being a descent that does not present technical difficulties, its length means that it can last up to 7 hours, therefore a certain physical resistance is recommended to allow you to enjoy it from start to finish.

Description of the activity

At the established departure time it will be necessary to be at the door of the office with your own vehicle to collect the material and meet the guide who will accompany us throughout the tour.
In the summer months, the car park will be accessed by a bus that leaves every morning from Alquezar to the Lecina car park!
Remember your swimsuit, food, water and sneakers!

From the office we will follow the guide’s car to the parking lot where the activity begins.

From there we made an approach march in swimsuits to the river.

Once in the water we will put on the neoprene and enjoy the descent!
