The ultimate healing adventure
Canyoning is an activity that goes down a valley with flow of river while enjoying nature.
It is a sport originating in France playing in a valley wearing a wetsuit, and has long been popular in Europe. You can slide on natural water sliders that the power of water creates, slide and jump into big natural pools, swim, and use techniques such as shower climbing as you make your way to the goal. It is a river sport where you can taste a sense of thrill and unity with nature.
