Contact us, tell us your concerns, and we will schedule the best adventure at the beginner level so that the experience is unique and you discover one of the best adventure sports you can practice in the mountains.

What is the best time for canyoning?

Each canyon has its ideal time for descent, and this “ideal time” will also vary depending on the experience we seek. Not all canyoners look for the same sensations within the canyons. Some enjoy the environment, while others need a good amount of water flowing through the canyon to enjoy it more.

For beginner canyoning, the best months of the year are during spring, summer, and early autumn, paying attention to the water conditions of the canyons and the ambient temperature, especially at the beginning and end of the season.

That said, canyoning can be done all year round; you just need to choose the right canyon.

Do I need to know how to swim to do canyoning?

As a general rule, yes, it is essential to know how to swim for canyoning. However, not knowing how to swim is not an obstacle to discovering canyoning. We can opt for the descent of beautiful dry canyons or some where the water component is minimal, where not knowing how to swim does not pose a danger.

Do I need to wear glasses; can I do canyoning?

This is an interesting point to consider before starting the descent of a canyon. If you need glasses to see well, you must have them tied, as the force of the water in a waterfall can make you lose them. It is also important to remember to take them off and store them safely before making any jumps into the water.

On the other hand, if you wear contact lenses, it is recommended to protect them with swimming goggles, as permanent contact with water can cause problems or even make them fall out.

What is the minimum age to practice canyoning?

Although the minimum age may vary depending on the child, we consider that the minimum age to start canyoning is around 6 or 7 years old, always adapting the chosen canyon to their needs.

However, minors must always be accompanied by an adult.

What are the prices for a beginner canyoning day?

Each canyon usually has a different price, depending on travel, the duration of the activity, and other factors that can influence costs. However, they generally have a price starting from 45€ per person.

Is canyoning a dangerous activity?

As an activity that takes place in the natural environment, there are risks associated with the activity itself, as well as other risks related to the environment.

The job of the canyoning guide is to accompany us during our descent and offer us the best possible risk management, ensuring that the activity is as safe as possible.

What do approach and return of the canyon mean?

These two concepts might sound strange to those who have never practiced canyoning or other mountain sports.

The approach, as its name indicates, is the path we need to follow on foot from the car to the canyon entrance, where the canyoning activity will actually begin.

The return is the path we need to take from the exit of the canyon, where our descent ends, back to the car.

Sometimes one or the other, or both routes can be immediate, meaning we will only need to walk a few minutes to reach the car.

What equipment do I need to bring for canyoning?

The most important thing for you to bring is good footwear, ideally mountain or trekking boots, although sports shoes can also suffice. Additionally, you will need a swimsuit and a towel, as well as a full change of clothes for after the activity.

As for the technical equipment necessary for this adventure, we will provide it.

About the footwear for canyoning

It is important that the footwear has a good grip; shoes with a smooth or slightly rough sole will not suffice.

Can I do canyoning if I am pregnant?

No, pregnant women cannot engage in risk sports. It is mandatory to always communicate this before undertaking the activity to avoid putting yourself and the group at risk.


If you already have some experience in canyoning, you can find options suitable for your level. Additionally, with the help of an experienced guide, you can enjoy more advanced canyons.
