What is Canyoning?
Canyoning (known as canyoneering) is travelling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include walking, climbing, jumping, abseiling, and swimming.
The terms canyoning and canyoneering are more often associated with technical descents — those that require rappels (abseils) and rope work, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swims.
Canyoning is enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.
Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, static ropes, helmets, wetsuits, and specially designed shoes, packs, and rope bags.
All the canyoning outings are operated and led by the leading canyoning and rock climbing guides in Mauritius, with vast experience in canyoning and rock climbing activities and rescue operations in all areas of Mauritius.
