Salt River Canyon - "The Full Monty"

Multifaceted awesome adventure
  • 5 / 5

The Canyoning Tour was a amazing adventure! We had so much fun the our two guides Puna and Tebzz, thank you guys a lot! We had a great safety briefing and also a very personal support of both guides. They made the whole tour a great atmosphere and we had just a perfect and fun time. Further is the equipment in a great condition (safety and Neopren). We were there off-season so our group was a lot smaller. Than was great for us so we could go through the adventures in a shorter time without any waiting of others. In the 4h trip you do the abseiling, jumping into water ponds, the highest is about 7meters high. Further you have 2 ziplines which make a lot of fun between the canyon sides! We totally recommend this tour and would always do it again!

An awesome day in nature

Where do I start, just a superb experience from the moment we arrived. Tebzzz and Darryl, superb and instilled confidence in what was actually a pretty tough adventure in terms of conquering fears in abseiling, jumping off rocks and zip wires. Highly recommend - we had 2 kids 10 and 12 and they loved it!!
