Now envision yourself attached to a rope moving along that waterfall in a controlled descent taking in the stunning beauty that the water has carved from the rock. Canyoning is the art of descending steep-walled gorges and deep mountain valleys using ropes to control your movements. Canyoning includes jumping, walking, scrambling, sliding, wading and other means to travel through this unique and spectacular part of our world.
