Not to be confused with canoeing! Canyoning is a relatively new activity to the UK. During a descent of a mountain gorge you can expect to experience it all; cliff jumping, wild swimming, slides down natural water flumes, abseiling and scrambling under waterfalls. Do it all at your own pace with the best in Scotland. We kit you up in the latest specialist gear, wetsuits, harness, helmet and buoyancy aid and off we go into this unique and truly amazing environment!
