What is canyoning?

It is nothing more than the descent of torrents , more or less sunken, with or without water, wearing an isothermal wetsuit, sneakers with sculpted soles (not smooth), helmet and harness , using different progression techniques such as:

  • The march, which is simply walking,
  • Jumping, that is, you can jump from minimal heights to great heights in natural pools formed by the stream itself.
  • The slide, meaning you can slide down “tobogans” (natural slides) following the path of the water.
  • Descent on or by rope, i.e., going over jumps or waterfalls with the aid of a rope and harness where it is not possible to do otherwise or where you prefer not to jump or slide. Knowledge of rope descent techniques is not required.
