A descent with impressive landscapes

The Isuala river has carved a gigantic fissure between mountains along its route, giving rise to one of the most impressive ravines in the Sierra, whose cliffs dominate the landscape and are visible from afar.

Within this descent, the Oscuros del Balces section is a busy ravine, famous for its beauty, to which is added that its flow allows you to enjoy one of the most beautiful aquatic descents in the Sierra de Guara throughout the year.

El Oscuros is a fun and complete canyon, perfect for beginning or improving canyoning techniques. It combines jumps, siphons, long and deep dark corridors, chaos of blocks, natural slides, rapids and rappelling.

This descent is an ideal activity for sports while discovering the landscapes of the Sierra de Guara, which will not leave anyone indifferent. Also ideal for those who want to start canyoning.
