Explore the canyon

Rocky Mountains – Abraham Lake, AB

For those who have no previous experience and want to know what canyoning is all about!

Description of the tour

Explorer canyon tours are for those who have never been canyoning before and are in moderate physical shape. Tours are between 3 to 4 hours depending on the size of the group.

Please let us know how the group feel about heights and we will find the canyon that suits you best. Jumps and slides are inexistant or can be evoided in those tours.

No swiming is involved but be prepared to be wet during the whole descent.

We will encounter some waterfalls and other obstacles that we will pass using specific canyoning techniques. In a Explorer tour you don’t need to have previous experience just a sense of adventure. Our guides will teach you the rest!

We are guiding in a multitude of canyons that allow us to operate during most of the season. We usually plan the trip the day before the tour and decide in which canyon we will bring you, depending on your skills, expectations, the canyons conditions, and the weather forecast. If you already know of a specific canyon you want to descend, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you.

The equipment

We have all the specific gear for you to stay warm and safe (wetsuit, harness, helmet, etc.). You only need to bring a bathing suit, a jacket (wind breaker, light rain jacket or hardshell), some shoes (Running, approach or light hiking shoes that can go in the water) and a towel. 

Some water (1 liter per person) and snacks or a lunch for full day tours.

Meeting location and progress of the tour

We meet our clients at a suitable location along Abraham Lake and then drive together the few last kilometers to the parking area of the canyon. 

There, we gear up and have a short talk on the plan for the day. 

Then we hike up to the upper entrance of the canyon (usually between 30 and 90 minutes of hiking). 

From there, we descend the canyon (between 1 and 4 hours inside the canyon, depending on the tour and the size of the group).  

At the bottom of the canyon route, we hike back to the car. 

The meeting time and the end of the day can be arranged depending on your expectations, the size of the group, and the conditions of the canyon.
