Really very nice and cool to do in a beautiful environment. They give great guidance and at every jumping moment you can choose whether you want to do it or not. Highly recommended!

Great trip. Beautiful scenery, good instructors and hire equipment felt good quality. Groups weren't too large and we didn't feel rushed. First time canyoning - would do it again.
