The best way to describe Canyoning is Coasteering
meets Gorge Scrambling
. Set in the remote but beautiful waterfall mountain regions of the Brecon Beacons National Park . Canyoning has the same elements as Gorge Scrambling but is set in the higher regions, harder challenges, more committed and in a more remote location.
The event will consist of wild swimming, flowing rapids , waterfall descents, plunge pool drops, traversing, scrambling, climbs, low / medium and the highest jumps all set in the spectacular Waterfalls of South Wales.
An absolute favorite with adults, teenagers, friends, parties, stag groups, hens parties, companies, military groups and all adventurers. Just 45 minutes from Cardiff, 25 minutes from Swansea, 30 mins from Porthcawl, 20 minutes from Brecon town itself and 45 minutes from Hereford.
Who is Canyoning Suitable For?
Canyoning is one of the most popular activities for teenage and adult individuals we offer and set in the higher mountain waterfalls region in the Brecon Beacons National Park
, it consists of wild swimming in rivers, scrambling, rapid flows, traversing, river walking, low and high level plunge pool jumps and is situated in a remote mountain environment.
You do not need to be able to swim but certain parts of the activity may be better served with a swimming ability as the Canyoning is a committed activity but several parts of the activity are optional including the high level jump and certain swims. As an individual we can book you in with another group of people to become cost effective on request.
You will be provided all the required safety equipment for any Canyoning activity, including a buoyancy aid, thick wetsuit and helmet and our experienced guides can alter the activity to cater for different levels. If you are particularly nervous around water and in remote areas please get in touch and we can go through the whole event in more detail with you.
What Should I Bring Canyoning?
We will provide all of the required safety equipment for all Canyoning activities including thick wetsuit, buoyancy aid and safety helmet, all of which are checked and fitted by your safety guide.
All you need to bring is something to wear under the wetsuit – shorts, swimming costume, base layer, etc, optionally a pair of shorts to wear over the wetsuit, a towel, sturdy pair of lace up trainers or boots and a positive adventurous attitude.
