Canyoning is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as hiking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, swimming. Although hiking down a canyon is non-technical canyoning is more often associated with technical descents those that require abseils and rope work. It is frequently done in remote and rugged situations and often requires navigation, trail finding and other wilderness travel skills.
Canyons that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. Most canyons are cut into limestone, sandstone, granite or basalt. It can be very easy or extremely difficult though emphasis in the sport is usually on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. A wide variety of canyoning routes are found throughout the world and canyoning is enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. While canyoners have used and adapted climbing, hiking, and river running gear for years, more and more specialized gear is invented and manufactured as canyoning popularity increases.

An hour of hiking on a forest trail through dense vegetation will be followed until we reach the point to enter into the canyon. We are going to have some rest and training on the basic elements of canyoning (rappelling, movement, jumps and slides).
