Beginners

An introduction to the world of canyoning. The program is created for everyone who wants to try this wonderful sport and enjoy it. You do not need any experience, knowledge, or special skills to join. We will teach you everything you need to know and help along the way. All you need is the courage to participate and be ready to have a great time. However, if you are more into action and adrenalin, we will give you a chance to show what you are made of. The great thing about canyoning is that even relatively diverse groups can enjoy it fully and without fear.

At the beginning of the program, there is a thorough briefing during which we explain and show you everything necessary for safe canyoning. We will teach you how to jump properly, how to abseil by yourself and how to move in canyons in general. After training, we will enter three canyons, and as the difficulty of the canyons grows, so will your abilities and skills improve.

Why to go canyoning with us?

We provide "comprehensive canyoning". This means that we will not just show you this sport, but we will take you on a deep dive into it. We want to differentiate ourselves from standard canyoning agencies that build their business on quantity instead of quality. We have time and our goal is not to go down as fast as possible but to enjoy it as much as possible.

When possible, we will allow you to abseil yourself, instead of lowering you down like a bag of potatoes. Our tour starts with comprehensive training - not just a five-minute warm-up at the car park. It can take up to two hours and ends when you are prepared to do everything that is required in canyoning.

We are not organizing bus tours with 30 people on board. Our groups have a maximum of 8 members (if they were bigger, there would not be time and space to provide a full and proper service). We plan the whole trip so that one day you can go canyoning independently.

Why are we doing it this way? Our way of guiding is based on the idea that we do not want to downgrade this amazing sport to the experience of an amusement park. We want to preserve its magic and hope that by taking this approach, we are creating a more engaged community. We want to cater to people who are going with us to do canyoning repeatedly in different places. 45% of our clients are returning customers…

Frequently asked questions

No, we believe that canyoning is an activity that can be fun for everyone. It is enjoyable not only for adrenaline junkies, but also for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Example: on our trip we can encounter a 10m waterfall with the option of jumping down. Some people jump right away, some need a little encouragement and some can go down the waterfall using ropes - that way they don't have to jump at all. Everyone can get something out of it and fine-tune the experience to their preferred level of adrenaline.
Almost no one has experience with canyoning. That’s why we created the BEGINNERS program. We will guide you through the whole trip. At the beginning, during the safety briefing, all required equipment and techniques will be demonstrated.
The water can be a bit cold. But you will get warm wetsuits that will protect you. Normally you are only cold for the first few seconds, then water in the neoprene suit reaches body temperature and you will become one with the water.
If you add up the cost of entry to individual canyons, you will get a similar price to our program. But most importantly, we offer much more. Our program differs from other agencies in that it lasts at least two days and we take you through more than one canyon. Additionally, our approach is not to go through the canyon as quickly as possible (so that we could go again with another group right away). We are in no hurry and we try to pass on our knowledge and expertise to you during the trip. What we offer you is COMPREHENSIVE CANYONING. We are with you even outside the canyon itself, whether we pass on other canyoning know-how or go out to dinner together.
For children above 10 years of age, canyoning is great fun. We just prefer not to mix our younger guests (up to 15 years) with normal groups. They usually need more attention and more help, which we are happy to give. But this can slow the whole group down and others might not be so happy about this. For this reason we provide trips with children only in our program PRIVATE CANYONING
If you are afraid of jumping, you don't have to. Every jump can be done with the rope. Also, we only jump when we know it is safe. It is our favorite part of canyoning. Usually at the beginning even small jumps can be an adrenaline rush, but you will get used to it quickly.
No problem. The neoprene suits will make you float. And canyons are more like springs with pools than big, powerful rivers.
The hardest part is usually a circa 35 minute long approach to the beginning of the canyon. If you really feel that you’re not in the best shape, choose the program for three days with one canyon per day.
That can be a bit of a problem. If you are shaking one meter above the ground maybe canyoning won't be your cup of tea. On the other hand, canyoning is about pushing the limits and getting out of your comfort zone, to see the unseen and feel alive. The worst feedback we ever got was: guys this is not for me, but I am happy that I went with you and tried it at least once.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. At the beginning we’ll teach you the right technique and we’ll belay you for extra safety.
The neoprene suit provides excellent protection. Imagine wrapping yourself in a yoga mat. It’s something like that except you can move easier. We also provide pro-canyoning shoes with an anti-slip sole.
If we approach canyoning with respect, the risk is minimal. Driving in a car is probably more dangerous.
