Canyoning is an outdoor sport and a very fun water activity.
It consists of descending a river, a gorge or a steep canyon, alternating swimming, hiking and climbing.
The canyoning descent uses technical notions of walking on various terrains, climbing, jumping, rappelling and swimming. While the most vertical obstacles require the use of rope techniques (abseil, zip line, etc.).
What is the minimum age for canyoning?
We advise from the age of 7 years. From this age, your children will be able to learn canyoning, but it is very important to know how to swim.
