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


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.

International operators

Below is the list of operators which organize canyoning in other countries than the clients they serve:


  • Abenteuer Schule, [1].


  • Team Fokiwa, [2]. Based in Netherlands, organize tours to France and Italy.


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

  • sifons (dive-under)
  • rappeling
  • jumps
  • slides (toboggan 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.
