Cañón de las Buitreras. Canoying. Serranía de Ronda.

It is doubtless the most important canyon in this area and it clearly stands out in Andalusia. It is a long distance watercourse canyon with narrow stretches and some siphons. It will be a unique experience if the water level is the appropriate but if it rises it could become extremely hazardous. A long wetsuit is required even in summer.
