Had a really good time with my wife during this experience, however we've paid for our pictures after getting to see through them on instructors iPad up front and have been told that he would send them to us through email and still haven't received them? Only downside I guess.

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!

Awesome adventure

My 15 years old son and myself absolutely loved it. Haven’t done anything like that before. Our guide took us all the way step by step. Would recommend to anyone.

Highly recommended

Just the right amount of challenge and adventure. This was our first time canyoning but our guide Ross was friendly and experienced and we felt in safe hands. All gear was provided including footwear and though the weather was cool, the wetsuits meant we stayed warm. The waterfalls are cold though, but you don't go canyoning expecting to stay dry! Highly recommended.
