From the meeting point, we will proceed by automobile to the lower parking site. Here we will change into our wetsuits and leave one or more automobiles, with towels and dry clothing. With another automobile, or on foot, we will continue uphill to the higher parking site. From here, a 10 minute trail will lead us to the canyon and after the safety and activity briefing we will finally enter the water.
The descent unfolds through abseils, downclimbing, one magnificent slide and a few jumps (up to 7 mm, but never obligatory). There are a total of five abseils. The setting is beautiful and wild, perfect for a first experience and to discover CANYONING. Once we have finished and reached the automobiles parked at the base of the descent, we change into our dry clothes and head for home.
No knowledge of abseiling and rope techniques is required.
