There are companies that offer a variety of packages for you to try and you don’t have to worry about the equipment as everything is provided for your safety and comfort. Opting for an organised Canyoning trip is one of the best ways to introduce beginners to this challenging and yet rewarding experience. Highly experienced guides are always there to help you and warn you about any potential danger areas you might encounter in the way.
Although Canyoning might appeal to your sense of adventure, it is important to bear in mind that it is not as easy as you might think and a number of basic skills are required. For instance, you do need to have a basic level of fitness and no…going to the gym once a year doesn’t count! You should also be able to swim and if you are going on an independent Canyoning trip, you will also need to know how to rig ropes and have some abseiling experience.
As mentioned before this can be a demanding sport so make sure you will have the energy and strength needed to complete the trek. Energy boosting drinks and snacks can be quite useful to help you maintain your stamina and strength to optimum levels so ensure you take a few of these.
