It is raining, will my canyoning / rafting tour still take place?

Rafting and canyoning tours can take place in rainy weather. We have super functioning 5mm neoprene suits with terry cloth lining. If available, you are welcome to wear sports underwear underneath - please no cotton!

What do you wear under a wetsuit?

Bikini, swim trunks, swimming costume, sports underwear - but no cotton please!

Do you have to know how to swim?

Definitely YES -as you don't wear a life jacket when canyoning, and depending on the tour, there may be swimming passages.

Are jumps a MUST when canyoning?

No, you don't have to jump. But if you are able to jump 2-3 metres you will have more fun on the tour. All jumps higher than 2 metres can be avoided, or you will be roped down by your guide.

What do I have to bring myself?

Swimwear, towel. For spectacle wearers we recommend a neoprene goggle strap - available on site. You can find detailed information in our packing lists.
