Popular Areas for Canyoning
The activity can be done in various canyons and gorges, ranging from easy to extremely challenging.
That being said, Canyoning is usually aimed at the general public and can be done by people of all ages and anyone with a basic fitness level.
The sport is focused on adventure and fun; countless companies and organisations offer it worldwide.
It is a fantastic activity on any trip that will bring you up close to spectacular waterfalls, raging rivers, deep pools, formidable rock formations and sheer cliffs.
There are numerous countries around the world with canyons that are suitable for Canyoning. Such countries are Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Norway, Switzerland and Austria, Mexico, Croatia, Montenegro, South Africa (where it is called Kloofing), Spain, Greece, Portugal and Ecuador, among several others.
Because Canyoning may involve rock climbing, descending from cliffs, Swimming in rapids and underneath waterfalls, jumping down, and rappelling, it makes partakers vulnerable to many injuries.
Although Canyoning Tours that companies organise are generally pretty safe, accidents do occur.
Canyoning is a dangerous sport with an escape from the sides of a canyon often tricky. In the past, Canyoneers have used gear meant for Running, Mountaineering, Hiking and Climbing. They have adapted it to their Sport or Activity, which combines many other Adventurous Sports.
Canyoning Equipment includes climbing hardware, static and semi-static ropes, wet suits, mountaineering helmets, rope bags, backpacks, specifically designed footwear and sometimes life jackets.
All these things aim to make it easier and safer to get in and out of the Canyon, travel around, and prevent injuries.
Training for Canyoning is done by practising each specific part: Hiking, Climbing, Swimming and Rappelling.
People who are experienced and are in good physical shape are less likely to sustain injuries while Canyoning on their trip.
