Why Canyoning ?

Because it’s one of the most exciting things you can do in the Canadian Rockies! 

Canyoning is exploring spectacular deep and narrow gorges, and often involves scrambling, sliding down natural features, rappelling down waterfalls, and even jumping and swimming into natural pools. 

Canyoning is the only way to access many of these amazing and unique places that are some of the last unexplored places on Earth.

People Talk

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up for my first ever canyoning trip (...) The tour was an absolute blast and unlike any adventure I've ever been on. I'm still smiling today just thinking about it and would recommend this unique experience to everyone!
(...) I strongly recommend going for a fun (half) day trip especially with the hot summer days coming ahead, and to escape the crowds from near-by touristy sites. It would also be a great activity on a rainy day since you're in the water and wearing a neoprene suit; we went as a couple but it would be a fun family activity with teens I imagine.
I went canyoning with Guillaume and it was an amazing adventure that I highly recommend. Guillaume was fun, calm and professional. He really made us feel safe at all time. The canyon was breathtaking, it's the perfect adventure for nature lover!!
