This guided canyoning tour was amazing! We learned to repel down the Canyon, waded and floated down the river, and got to jump of ledges into the river. Absolutely beautiful location. We loved this experience and would 100% do it again.

Svømme, kravle, klatre og rappelle. Du følger Rio Grande gennem jungle-lignende område. Du får våddragt, hjelm og klatregej udleveret fra starten, det kan anbefales at leje klatresko! Turen starter med en fysisk krævende vandretur op af bjerget, for at komme til startpunktet. Herfra dropper du i floden. Det er klart en fordel, hvis du har kendskab til klatring og rapelling, da du ikke kan tage denne tur uden mindst tre steder hvor dette er en forudsætning. Selve rapelling-delen foregår delvist i vandfald, hvilket er meget spændende. For vores team var en del af succesen, at du kan og tør! Vi var afsted med to voksne og to børn på 10 & 12 år. Turens succes afhænger af, at kan klare at være våde min 3,5 time og at de kan håndtere klatre/rappelle delen.
