A descent for all audiences!

The Mascún river gives rise to one of the most famous ravines in Guara, being one of the symbols of the Natural Park. In its course, the action of the water has excavated a gap in the mountain where landscapes of waterfalls and an amazing architecture of needles appear, a clear example is “La Ciudadela” near the town of Rodellar.

These formations give it the appearance of a magical place, which is why Mascún in Arabic means “place inhabited by spirits”.

While the Upper Mascún is a descent for experienced canyoners, the final part of this river between the town of Rodellar and its mouth in the Alcanadre has given rise to a small aquatic ravine ideal for starting canyoning.

During its tour, jumps, siphons, block chaos, natural slides and badinas are combined. Many of these steps are avoidable if desired.

The lack of technical difficulty in its route makes this descent a perfect activity for all ages, recommended for families with small children or those who want a playful and less sporty descent.

The recommended time to do this descent is spring, since the flow in summer can be too low to enjoy this activity.

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.
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 will make an approach march in a swimsuit to the river.

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