Activity Description:

This is a great canyon with nothing too extreme but plenty of challenges and lots of fun!

There are a couple of fast natural toboggans and slides landing in beautiful clear alpine pools. You can do these in the classic sitting position, head first or even run down them! Your guide will show you what is possible and then it’s up to you how far you want to push yourself!!

There are plenty of non-compulsory jumps at different levels up to 7m high, which again can be jumped, dived or even somersaulted!

At the end there is a dramatic waterfall to abseil down!

What to Wear:

Swimming costume, Trainers that can get wet, have a good grip and will protect your feet., Neoprene boat shoes are not suitable., 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!, You will get changed in the outdoors – there are no changing room facilities., 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!

Equipment Provided:

Full body canyoning wetsuits with neoprene socks (if required) are provided along with canyoning harnesses and helmets. The guide will be equipped with a full set of safety ropes and equipment.

Practical 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!

At the end of the canyon you have a 20 – 30 minute walk back up through the woods to the car park. You end up back at the car park where you’ll get changed back into dry clothes for a well earned drink and snack!
