Fantastic half day canyoning!

This trip was just enough to give you an insight into canyoning. We went as a small group and had a great time! It was challenging enough but not overly difficult so we all felt like we had achieved something! Ross was our guide and he made sure I felt safe even though I'm a bit scared of abseiling he made me feel at ease! Thank you!

Great adventure experience!

Great scenery, the canyoning was fanstastic, with lots of different parts and actions (slides, climbing, abseiling, with one little jump)! Propos to our great guide who delivered a safe and secure trip, in his own funny way. The group was great also, and we really enjoyed this activity!
