Types of Canyoning

Actually there are 2 types. The first is about Tourism Canyoning. This involves an experienced trainer and its goal is entertainment. Most canyons are suitable for that kind and usually the whole experience takes around 4 hours of fun. You know, the slide, dive, smile hours. There is a second type. This is Sports Canyoning. This consists of an experienced team and they exercise in many different types of canyons and situations. Members of that team are also specific school graduates.

Do I have to have experience in canyoning?

Bring your bathing suit, a towel and a pair of strong, sturdy comfortable trekking shoes. These will get very wet during our expedition. Usually, people who attend know how to basically swim (not anything fancy), but what is needed most is to be in good emotional and physical health. Everyone over the age of 16 can participate without having an athlete’s physical status or experience. Simply watch the instructions trainers will provide to properly understand how to rappel. In case you have a preference for a specific canyon tell us about it. We will take that into consideration.
