Your day at a glance:

  • Soon the first highlight of the canyon is reached: the two main abseils which lead you down a vertical waterfall. The stance between the abseils is a chockstone, wedged in an airy position halfway down the waterfall. This is canyoning at its best! We then break for our famous lunch .
  • Another abseil and jump gets us to the end of the canyon. To walk out we sneak up through steep gullies between rock faces and walk along narrow ledges.
  • The excitement continues with a simple 10-metre rock climb 300 metres above the base of the canyon. Easy walking takes us back to the car park.
