    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.

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).

See also: Rock climbing.

  • rappeling
  • jumps
  • slides (tabagan in Spanish)

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