What is Canyoning?

Japans best adventure sport

Canyoning is the sport of negotiating your way down canyons by employing various techniques; abseiling and jumping waterfalls and cliffs, cascading down natural chutes and water slides, swimming through crystal clear pools and using special rope systems, such as flying foxes.There is usually a small amount of hiking required to access most courses, but once in the canyon, nearly 80% of the time is spent in the water. For the best explanation of canyoning watch the tour video.

Check out our frequently asked questions page and if you are still unsure about where to start ask our reservations staff. They can advise about which canyon would be best for YOU and our expert guides can customize the tour to suit YOUR thrill level!
