Just do it! ... You'll be really glad that you did. Our first ever family canyoning trip was utterly memorable. Better yet, it was straightforwardly & very professionally organised by the very friendly folk at Bavella Canyon - who provide good quality equipment & faultless advice. The Pulischellu canyon is breathtakingly beautiful & contains a series of adrenaline-pumping jumps & 'toboggans' into gin-clear pools ... which were negotiated safety under the watchful eye of Elise, our expert & excellent guide. You can't visit Corsica without trying canyoning, & a day in the Pulischellu with Bavella Canyon is the perfect active day out. Highly recommended!! Highly recommended!!

I went their up the mountains from recommendation This place is bliss quite away from everything possible. Total quietness. These canyon do run a good distance full of private little natural pools at the top you could get a surprise with the naturist club that is nearby and you may find attendees in the nude and also children with plainly of room you can move to other natural pool. This place can be fantastic for a great picnic or romantic moment overall a good 20 minutes on the trail from the car to get their stunning is my word

Absolutely incredible drive. About two hours from Porto Vecchio to Sorenzara on the coast again. Go via Zonza through Bavella. Places to stop and eat/drink/picnic on the way. Take advantage of the built in viewing stops. Such a lot to see.

We randomly (at the last minute) decided to pootle along this road in order to get to Corte. We should have spent the whole fortnight on this road! (Should have read the reviews n'est pas?!) It was stunning. Majestic mountains, naughty goats spilling into and gamboling all over the roads, fragrant forests and that beautiful tumbling turquoise river. It was spellbinding. As to be expected, it was busy in places (people who HAD read the reviews!) and there are many many cyclist to be aware of whilst driving

The Bavella Canyon is simply great! After approximately 1 hour drive from Porto Vecchio you reach the natural pools of the canyon where you can swim in cristal clear waters. There are some companies there offering canyoning tours with certified moutain guides, for all levels of fitness. Many stopps on the road where you have a stunning view on the Bavella mountains.
