Canyoning consists of descending streams. Unlike other water sports with which it is often confused (rafting, kayaking, hydro speed) go along the river on foot, without using boat or canoe. The progression takes place following the direction of the water, and never backwards, through dips, jumps, slides, and where it is necessary progression of rope.
The environment in which it takes place is fascinating: the stream flow usually within narrow deep gorges carved into the rock, with vertical strong, waterfalls, which prevents prograssione backwards or from the canyon exit point whatsover.
There are several streams, already equipped by us for this purpose, to go with this style, with various levels of difficulty.
