Canyoning or canyoneering consists of walking down a watercourse running in gorges or ravines. Depending on the nature of the terrain, the gorges are more or less narrow and deep, while the flow of the river can vary a lot. We mostly go down the river walking, but sometimes we need to swim, always following the bed of the watercourse. While canyoning down the river, one might need to cross waterfalls, using climbing techniques such as roping down. One might also need to jump, climb down, slide down and of course swim in calm or fast flowing waters. Practicing canyoning requires using specific tools: harnesses, ropes, descender, helmets, clothes, and shoes that are fit for hiking on slippery ground. Even though everyone can try and practice canyoning, it is important to remember that moving through a mountainous environment requires to respect certain rules and security instructions
Canyoning has an elements of risk, like any other outdoor activities or extreme sports. Our Team leaders are experienced, professional and working at least 10 - 20 years for Planet Action Adventure. You will get a safety briefing before the tour start. The gear is of European standard and subject to regular inspections.
No, you just have to be keen to try something new. Canyons are open to people from 9 or 12 years old ( depends on the canyoning site) in good physical condition to make the most of the activity. If you have a specific medical condition, please let us know.
You can wear glasses in the canyon, but contact lenses are better, but can still fall out. If you only have glasses, ensure you have a sports strap or tie and let us know before departure. Glasses are worn at clients risk.
