What is Canyoning? Where do you do it? Do I have to do the Jumps? These are all questions we are asked here at Adrenalin Addicts, below is all the information you will need about Canyoning and what to expect.
First off, what is Canyoning? Canyoning is the art of descending or ascending a very steep section of waterway, it usually involves climbing, abseiling, sliding and swimming your way to the bottom. As Canyoning has evolved into an adventure sport more areas have been discovered, and more inventive ways of descending have been found. Our trip will take you on a wild adventure down the Afon Prysor, we start gradually with a scramble down to the water, small slides follow until we reach the mighty Cresta Run, this is a series of slides that culminate in a 35ft Waterfall. When we reach the waterfall we descend via Zipwire / Abseil into the heart of this temperate rainforest. From here we enter the lower Canyon, we start with a bang. A slide followed by a 15ft freefall into the plunge pool below. This is where we have an opportunity to test our nerve against a series of jumps from different heights. Don't worry if you don't fancy the jumps they are all optional, after the Jumps we continue down the canyon through slides until we reach the final obstacle, a scramble up and out of the Canyon via a Waterfall.
