A water sport
Which you can enjoy as a family or with a group of friends; there are canyons suitable for all abilities.
You won’t believe your eyes!
No no, you won’t be getting on a boat!
Canyoning is classed as a water sport because most of the activity takes place in water. You can leave your boat behind but don’t forget your sports shoes! You will be equipped with a neoprene wetsuit for your comfort, and a helmet and a harness for your safety.
As the name suggests, the playing field of canyoning is a canyon.
As soon as you step foot in a mountainous area, canyons are everywhere. A canyon is quite simply a rift between two mountains, which varies in length and width. You will be descending these rifts by foot, abseiling, sliding down natural waterslides, and of course jumping into pools and waterfalls.
These waters of varying shades of blue are to be found nestled amidst a wild and rich vegetation; incredible!
You will probably have figured out that in order to go down a canyon you must first climb up to the starting point… by car or by foot depending on the access. It is an activity which you can share with your family or friends because there are canyons for all abilities, for a fun day out full of sensations!
So are you ready to go down?
