Quick Details

Adult Ages: 12+

L’Estret canyon, one of the simplest but most beautiful water canyons in the province of Alicante!

The old wetland of Amadorio, now dry, which will lead us to the famous dam of the eighteenth century. The first rapel, located in the dam, of 20 meters downhill will take us to a second rapel of 10 meters more vertical where we will already be inside the canyon.

The Estret Canyon Relleu is one of the simplest but at the same time beautiful canyons in the province of Alicante. Its narrow and high walls make it an ideal place for water canyoning. Your physical preparation has to be in very good condition since you swim a lot.

Estret Canyon Relleu

The Estret Canyon Relleu is ideal for water canyoning once the rainy season has passed, as the rainfall will help to clean the canyon to make it impeccable and allow for an amazing itinerary.

It is a gorge of cold water and that generates a feeling of enclosure, in addition to being quite long to travel. You can make very good rapids, at the same time that you run through horizontal stretches in which there is not too much difficulty.

Depending on the group and its physical condition, it may take a few hours to walk the Estret De Orxeta Canyon, so it is an ideal activity to do from early morning to almost after noon.

Location of the Estret Canyon Relleu

The town of Orxeta, where the ravine is located, is very close to both Benidorm and Villajoyosa. To access it you just have to take direction towards the Amadorio Reservoir via the A-7, taking a couple of signposted secondary roads to reach Orxeta.

The return from the last ponds of the Estret Canyon Relleu to the car park is easy, following the riverbed until you find one of the bridges, climb it and walk to the vehicles.
