The Vajo dell’Orsa is one of many gorges, which is extremely popular due to its length and the many varied passages (slides, jumps, waterfalls and clear pools). Located on the back of Monte Baldo, we first have to drive a little to reach the canyoning parking lot. A wonderful hike leads us first steeply uphill and then along the edge of the gorge into the canyoning valley. Again and again we try to catch a glimpse of the canyon, but the canyon is too narrow and cannot be seen – it doesn’t reveal its secrets so quickly.
Arrived at the starting point of the tour, we take a short break, put on our wetsuits and start to reveal the secrets of the canyon. Small jumps and abseiling points over the waterfalls let us warm up quickly and we reach the dark passage of the canyon – cut so tightly that almost no daylight shines in – mystical!
Go on! After more abseiling points and jumps, the gorge opens, large boulders lie in the creek bed, the river turns – at the end of the passage there is another great double abseil point and we have reached the end of the canyon.
If we want we can add the little Brentino (the lower part of the Vajo dell’Orsa) – we are already practiced!
A short hike takes us from there back to the cars.
