This is a spectacular day for those who love the nature mixed with adrenaline.

After Hotel Pickup, we drive directly to the check-in point where a briefing will be held on the activity, safety standards and equipment distribution.

We provide secure lockers to secure your belongings during your trip. Your guide for the day will then give you a short trip briefing all necessary paperwork will be completed and we are ready to set off.

We will then drive a further 10 minutes to the canyon starting point.
Once everyone is ready the trip leader will give an in-depth safety briefing and explain about the canyon. You will then embark on a 3 hour to 4 hour decent of the canyon. You will be given alternative routes at all times if you are feeling uncomfortable with certain aspects or if you want to challenge yourself a little more, we have options to suit everyone. You will have the opportunity to try leaping through waterfalls into crystal clear pools, flying across the canyon on ziplines, navigating your way through riverbeds, abseiling down cliffs, sliding down nature slides, and swimming through stunning lagoons. 

After doing the canyoning you will be hungry; we invite you to lunch in a local restaurant where you can meet the countryside people. It’s a real opportunity to know our culture through the food. 

After this amazing experience we will drive you back to your accommodation.
