Reviews for Active Alta Rocca


We've discovered so much more of a magnificent region, and next year we'll be back for the north.

Charles 12/08/2023Active Alta Rocca

A huge plus for the canyoning and adventure course, which the whole family loved. Very informative instructors.

Linda 06/08/2023Active Alta Rocca

A little fog at the start of the trip, but we ended up with a lot of sunshine on the Aiguilles de Bavella and in our hearts ;-)
