Canyoning Italy – Why the Dolomites?

Firstly the stunning landscape of the Dolomites is an incredible backdrop for this. You will see rolling hills in the distance, along with vineyards and green meadows that surround ancient settlements and walled villages. The countryside of Val Maggiore is charming. When you are descending the walls of the mountain, with our Canyoning Nevegal tour you will arrive directly on the shores of Lake Santa Croce.

Canyoning Italy – Do you know why the Nevegal is called this?

Mount Nevegal (neve= snow + gal= rooster in local dialect) intakes its name from the play of light and shadows that alternate on the mountain. The always snow-capped peak looks towards Belluno, but looking at the mountain in profile you can see the sun rising at dawn Hence the commonality with the rooster!
