Experience Level:

Beginner

Fitness Level:

Moderate

Rules:

All participants must be able to swim 10 metres and be comfortable putting their head under water.

What to Wear:

Swimming costume and trainers that can get wet, have a good grip and will protect your feet. Neoprene boat shoes are not suitable. An old pair of running trainers are perfect. If you wear contact lenses, you may want to have a pair of goggles to hand for when you jump into pools but this is not a requirement!

Please note, on hot days, you may walk up to the top of the canyon in your swim wear as it is too hot to walk in a wetsuit so if you prefer to be covered up, bring a t-shirt and shorts. Please note that whatever you wear to walk into the canyon will need to fit under your wetsuit and will get wet.

What to Bring:

Bring a towel, water and a waterproof camera if you have one! If you plan on bringing a camera, it is a good idea to have it on a cord with a carabiner to attach to your wetsuit so you don't lose it. There are no shops in the vicinity so if you are coming near a meal or snack time, then bring provisions for before or after your canyon!

Details

Your guide is a UIAGM high mountain guide with a canyoning speciality. He will meet you at the designated parking area and give you your equipment.

You will get changed in the outdoors into your wetsuits and then walk up to the top of the canyon (about a 15 minute walk).  He will give you a safety briefing and then you’ll head into the canyon for some canyoning fun! You end up back at the car park where you’ll get changed back into dry clothes!
