What a great adventure! It was my first time canyoning and I would recommend it to anyone looking for action. The combination of climbing, small jumps and swimming + everything in the heart of nature in the waterfalls is a unique feeling. The time flew by. I would have liked to have added a few more hours. Unfortunately, our group of 11 participants was a bit too big for my taste. I think with a smaller group you could avoid long waiting times. The 2 guides who led our group were great. They informed us about all the important details before the canyoning and I therefore felt very safe. The transport (pick-up at the meeting point) also took place without any problems.

What a great activity! I wish we had discovered this earlier in the holiday, then we would have gone even more often. The guidance was good, beautiful surroundings and afterwards we received many photos and videos of the activity. The atmosphere was good and we would recommend this to anyone! There was plenty on offer for both someone with some excitement for heights, and someone who likes a challenge! The guidance responds well to this and ensures that everyone feels safe. We got a march and the clothing was all in good order and neatly organized in advance so that everything was very clear!
