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.
Based on a few cool canyoning trips during the year you learn the basics of this sport. You will learn about:
- Moving forward with a rope
- Moving forward without a rope
- Swimming in wild water
- Risk management
- Origins of canyons
- Anchor points and hooks
- Material knowledge
- Tour planning and preparation
- Canyoning casuistry and self-sufficiency
