Gorge Walk

Fully guided half day gorge walk,  Starting just just 30mins along Gorge walking on activity holidaythe coast, we head off on foot to follow the river up it's valley.  Most of the walk is either alongside or, as you progress further up stream, actually through the river, which is usually around ankle deep in summer. 

After parking up, we follow the valley up as it narrows through a series of gorges, picking our way along the river, and working our way up stream, criss-crossing the river on our way.  

Suitable for pretty well all ages, as the route is only very gently up stream, with only some small boulders and river banks to scramble up and down.  Most of the route is in the streams / river so there are loose pebbles and rocks underfoot on occasions.

Higher up the gorge you will pass through a series of narrower marble gorges, some only a few meters wide.  Further up stream we stop at some rock pools and small waterfalls where you can cool off with a swim before returning. 

Cameras a must, as the scenery is pretty spectacular and there's always a chance we may see mountain goats or wild ibex.  Great fun for all ages!

If this sounds great then don't forget our fantastic canyoning day, which is always a best seller!
