A spectacular and vertical canyon that will not leave indifferent any caynoneer.

Due to its morphology, this is the ideal canyon to either start or finish the season. We also do this canyon when the Artazul one is at full capacity.

On this occasion, to make the descent of the Lizebar ravine, we will approach the municipality of Arteta, Navarra. More specifically to the source or village spring. The Spring or Nacedero de Arteta is located in the Valley of Ollo and is one of the natural outputs of the aquifer of the interior of the Sierra de Andia.

It is a limestone plateau of about a thousand meters of average altitude with abundant outflows of water and typical forms of the karstic relief such as sinkholes, chasms and lapiaces. In this enclave are the ravines of Artazul and the Lizebar.

We will leave the vehicles and the dry clothes in the car park of the spring, next to the Udarbe river, and we will go up a steep path that will lead us directly to the bed of the ravine.

The Lizebar ravine runs through a karstic area very aesthetic and very well defined. It is an ideal ravine to do it at the beginning of the season because it is the moment in which we will find it with water, while all the other descents are impracticable due to the abundance of water.

This is a pretty and well defined canyon. This is ideal to do it at the start of the season as it doesn’t get as full as the others.When it’s dry, you can descend it throughout the year, and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and the tricks of light that play with your eyes.


It is a technical descent where you have to overcome 9 abseils between 5 and 30 metres high. There is the option of combining two abseils into one long one (65m), the longest that we offer.


We dare you to try it out!
