Such a great adrenaline rush doing the Canyon Fox this morning. Easy pre-briefing at the shop in town, before the scenic drive up to the car park, where we dismount and put any valuables into a storage locker. The walk up to the Canyon Fox...More

While very exhilarating and amusing I recommend arming yourself with rapier wit when dealing with the staff haha

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
