Canyoning is a beautiful combination of a variety of outdoor sports. During a canyoning trip, you hike to the start of the canyon. Here, you enter the canyon and while walking/hiking, sliding and abseiling you get through the canyon. Abseiling from a high waterfall, followed by jumps in deep waters and of course natural waterslides in beautiful surroundings complete your trip.
