WHAT IS CANYONING?

What is canyoning? It is simply the descent of mountain streams, more or less narrow and embanked, with or without water, wearing an isothermal  wetsuit, gym shoes with wedged soles (not smooth), a helmet and a harness, using various descent techniques, such as:

  • Hiking, that is, simply walking
  • Jumping, that is, one can jump from small or even significant heights into the pools that have formed naturally in the canyon bed
  • Sliding, that is, you can slide down “toboggans” (natural slides), following the route carved in the rock bed by the water.
  • Abseiling, that is descending on or using a rope, that is, descending waterfalls with the aid of a rope and harness, where no other method is possible, or if one prefers not to jump or slide. No knowledge of rope descent techniques is required.
