Canyoneering, or canyoning, is a true adventure that just about anyone can do - no experience required. On this adventure you'll find yourself hiking, scrambling, boulder hopping and rappelling as you descend through beautiful natural gorges. Canyons are dynamic environments that are constantly changing - the same canyon could be totally different from season to season.
Depending on the canyon, we'll meet you at the trailhead or a central rendezvous location. We'll gear up and make our way to the canyon. Once we're in, we can't turn around - the adventure is on!!
Duration: approximately 4-8 hours depending on group numbers and pace (not including transportation time).
