What to Expect
Join Desafío Adventure Company's hottest tour, the Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoneering.
Are you ready to go BIG? Are you up for rappelling tropical waterfalls, hiking and down-climbing in an isolated jungle canyon? Then this is your ideal tour.
Canyoneering is a brand new sport that’s becoming very popular the world over! The rugged, mountainous terrain near the Arenal Volcano is ideal for canyoneering. Combine rappelling, down-climbing, river tracing and the huge, breathtaking waterfalls hidden in our Lost Canyon.
Our Lost Canyon Adventure is an experience of a lifetime, letting you go where very few have had the privilege to roam. Imagine yourself in the midst of thick rainforest at the top of a magical canyon full of tropical waterfalls with surprises each step of the way.
This exciting tour includes travel the old-fashioned way! You’ve probably heard about Costa Rica’s famous bumpy backroads; start off by doing a fun 4x4 off-road adventure on our “Jungle Limos” as you head about 15 minutes into a quiet mountainside community.
Prepare to get wet! Your guides will give you a thorough safety talk about important rappelling and down-climbing techniques. You’ll get high-quality technical climbing gear such as a harness, helmet and gloves, and you’ll get to practice your first descent on a small, 150-foot (45 meter) waterfall.
Take a deep breath! There you are, on a sturdy platform looking down into the depths of a massive tropical waterfall. You’ll rappel down for the thrill of a lifetime! Make your way along the river by down-climbing and rappelling a series of 6 waterfalls that get gradually bigger and bigger.
Then, we save the best for last! The biggest and most exciting waterfall is your last descent… you’ll finish with an exhilarating 200-foot (60 meter) guided rappel!
The hike back up takes about 10 minutes, but take your time to enjoy the intense rainforest that surrounds you. At the top, you’ll arrive to our Canyon Café where you can change into your dry clothes and then sit down to your best meal in Costa Rica!
