CANYONING IN BASQUE COUNTRY

SATURIO II CANYON

SATURIO II CANYON
LEVEL: Intermediate | ADVENTURE SPORTS: CANYONING IN BASQUE COUNTRY

The Saturio is a suitable descent to progress in the world of canyoning.

Mountain canyon with lush vegetation that conveys a feeling of finding us canyoning on a tropical island. Large ferns, lush forests, red lichens, mosses and water, create a beautiful setting with unique play of lights inside the ravine.

We will begin the activity in the town of Elgoibar, near the Basque coast within the Izarraitz massif, to make a half-way descent in one of the tributaries of the Deba river basin, Saturio Erreka, waters formerly used by the Saturio Mill already in disuse.

We will approach from the meeting point to a closer and more accessible parking to reach the beginning of the ravine after twenty minutes of approach approach by a small path. Once at the head of the beginning of the ravine, we will equip ourselves with the specific materials and after an explanatory talk about the operation of the group within the ravine, we will begin the activity.

Ravine with red nickel and green mosses give a beautiful hue to the waters of this Saturio Canyon, where at the beginning of the activity we find the first rappel to test our skill in rappelling. A large pool will welcome us with beautiful views of the waterfall we have made.

Then, a stretch of pools with some small slide, will make us approach the next technical difficulty of the ravine. Descent with rope of other two rappels of six and ten meters to reach the most narrow and engorged zone of the canyon. A water area with pools and short slides will test our swimming technique. A last 12-meter rappel to finish a narrow area where the ravine continues through a waterfall that leads us to the Saturio Mill and then, we will continue through the best waterfall of the 30m ravine until the confluence with the Deba River.

Once off on the way back, we are only separated fifteen minutes back by a road that takes us to our vehicles.

If you want to organize a family activity or a different bachelor party, fun and suitable for all your friends, this is the ideal activity.

Do not hesitate and come to know the world of ravines in the beautiful Saturio canyon.
