Canyoning season

The canyoning season in Minakami starts in late April and goes through until late October. In early season (May) the water flows in the canyons can be high and water temperatures a bit on the cool side (12 deg C) but with all of the gear on you are well protected.  In the summer months the water temps rise to around 18 deg C with air temps of up to 38 deg C, so hanging out in the canyon all day is the BEST place to be.

Our more advanced Canyons for experienced canyoneers open up from July, as we are able to access the higher alpine terrain. We require you to have been canyoning with us before OR be able to prove extensive canyoning experience to take on the advenaced courses.
