Canyoning is one of our most popular activities. We use one of the best gorges in the UK; this is adventure canyoning. During the we wander up through ancient woodland and we get in and follow the deep ravine as it charges its way down the mountain. Along the way we descend slides, swim across pools, jump into the deep and abseil/zipline down a waterfall.
This experience is 100% enjoyment and we keep you safe by providing you with all the necessary safety equipment and you're with an instructor at all times. Everyone gets a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and harness. You don't even need to be able to swim (it helps though)!
Because we move through fast flowing water and encounter various tricky obstacles, canyoning is usually suitable for children over the age of 11 although when the river is calm enough we do allow younger people. If you have any very young children, try gorge scrambling instead; it's very similar just a lot more family-friendly. Age guide: 4-10 years. The trip lasts approximately 2-3 hours.
If you want a full on adrenalin packed adventure check out our new Canyon Xtreme trip! If you book on to this trip we do the best bits of the normal canyon plus we continue down the river to an area with a waterfall slide, optional jumps up to 45ft and some more extra big slides! This is one to remember. Details below:
Looking for the ultimate adventure activity? Canyon Xtreme is probably for you! It's an extension to the normal canyon trip for people that want to go BIG! The lower section of the gorge gives access to some seriously exciting features: you can expect big waterfalls, big jumps and big adrenalin. All of the features are avoidable except the slide off the 15ft waterfall so there is some level of commitment required. Minimum age guide: 11+ this depends on ability and water levels. Canyon Xtreme takes approximately 3-4 hours.
