This canyon experience is a perfect way to be introduced to canyoning. The canyon consists of majestic rainforest scenery with rock jumps (optional) from 2m up to 5m and finishes with a breath-taking 30m waterfall abseil! The longest swim required to complete is approximately 10m. You will be provided with a thick, warm wetsuit, canyoning harness, backpack and a helmet. Once you are geared up, we give you abseil preparation training, then off we go to start our journey into the depths of the canyon!
Before you get to the waterfall, you will have already gasped at the canyon’s beautiful rainforest and sculptured rock, clambered over boulders, leaped into deep pools, and spotted bright orange crayfish. For the canyon you will also wear a wetsuit to protect you from its always cool waters and there are some short swims involved.
