Amazing canyoning experience with Gareth down a beautiful canyon! Small group of 8 people including 2 young kids and everyone made it through all the challenges! A really awesome surprise awaits close to the end of the journey that would just 'take your breath away'!

Ah thanks Sam, it was so great to have you back as a returned customer. Last time was rock climbing and this time leaping and abseiling from waterfalls. Lets finish it off can do the caving next! Have a great summer my friend. Regards Gareth

Canyoning was amazing, we will 100% be back. Gareth was excellent and the route is good for all abilities. We were worried that we might get cold, however with the wetsuits and the canyoning we didn't struggle at all.More
