Canyoning (or: canyoneering) is about going in a bottom of a canyon, which is either dry or full of water.

Contents

Understand

Canyoning combines elements from swimming, climbing and jumping--but requires relatively little training or physical shape to get started (compared to rock climbing, scuba diving or alpine skiing, for example).

Do

There are several kind of techiques in a canyon, which are also features of a specific canyon:

  • sifons (dive-under)
  • rappeling
  • jumps
  • slides (tabagan in Spanish)

Plus trivial which are found in virtually every canyon with water: walking, swimming, climbing to large stones.

Other characteristics of a canyon are length, duration, altitude difference; time to get in to a canyon start and to get out from its finish.
