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

Contents

  • 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.
