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.
There is a canyon for everybody!
Whether you want to go for a hike, a swim, or a full vertical adventure, canyons are outstanding places worth exploring!
You can easily book your trip following the few steps down below.
