An exhillerating mountain water experience travelling down rivers or streams within a canyon by a variety of means including walking, scrambling, climbing, abseiling and swimming.
Canyoning is generally only available in the mountains, where steep valleys and rushing mountain streams lead to the formation of canyons.
Typically what separates a canyon from any ordinary stream is the narrow passage created by erosion into bedrock, creating beautiful sculptured walls and spectacular waterfalls. There are water chutes and pools to jump in, and you will get very wet abseiling down waterfalls!
The wide choice of canyons make this suitable for beginners, and you are never obliged to make the jumps!
There are 2 adventures to choose from:
Discovering Canyoning - You will get to experience fun discovery jumps from 4 to 8 metres with toboggans and abseils on long waterfalls.
Long half-day programme - This is a slightly longer trip than the discovery programme with the same experiences and high waterfalls.
