Is Canyoning dangerous ?
Canyoning is a natural and outdoor/in the wild activity, therefore not secured. Despite the goodwill of your guide, natural risks persist (fast rise of the water, rock fall,…). Fortunately, they are very rare.
Despite this description of difficult, and sometimes worrying situations, canyoning provides a lot of fun and excitement and amazing discoveries. The safety and knowledge of the risks linked to this activity stay essential to avoid accidents. It is highly recommended to do this activity with qualified professionals.
Are there any medical conditions which won’t allow me do canyoning?
