First time canyoning

The full day is an amazing trip, photos don't show how amazing the place is. Every where you look is mind blowing. Ross the guide is very calming and explains every detail. You have choice to do the jumps or abseil down, due to recent injury I choose to abseil. I'll be back next to do the jumps. This was my first time canyoning and felt totally safe the whole trip, with enough adrenaline parts to keep it exciting. With all the gear supplied you float in water and the temperature is pleasant. On my trip 3 of us where 1st timers we all made it with smiles from ear to ear. Just do it you'll love it Cheers Tony
