Popular Areas for Canyoning

The activity can be done in a wide variety of canyons and gorges, ranging from easy to extremely challenging.

The sport is focused on both adventure and fun it is offered by countless companies and organisations all over the world.

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.

Common Injuries

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 are organised by companies are generally pretty safe, accidents do occur.

Canyoning Equipment

Canyoning is a dangerous sport with escape from the sides of a canyon often difficult. In the past, Canyoneers have used gear that is meant for Running, Mountaineering, Hiking and Climbing and have adapted it to their Sport or Activity, which, after all, 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 are aimed at making it easier and safer to get in and out of the canyon, travel around in it and prevent injuries while doing it.

Training for Canyoning is done by practicing each specific part of it 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.
