Canyoning is about descending through narrow limestone gorge, cut by the flow of water. The action is jumping and diving into pools of crystalline water, rappelling down a rope, where occationally you might have to climb a little bit to get to a good launch spot. We also slide down waterfalls of various heights.
Unlike other water sports, it is practiced on foot, without the aid of rafts, canoes or other means
The itineraries are very steep within a the small stream bed, with slides, waterfalls, jumps and pools. The trip starts with a walk up a steep path on foot, bypassing the canyon, then we enter and descend the gorge until the exit.
The activity takes place in a group, is accessible to anyone physically fit and can swim, who does not suffer from vertigo. Children aged 12 years and above are welcome. Canyoning lends itself very well also as a Team Building or a bachelorette/bachelor party. Depending on the number of participants there will be one or more expert guides to provide all the assistance necessary to perform in complete safety.
The canyons we suggest are well known to Alpin Action; our guides ensure your safety, aid your confidence and guiding you through the trip to have the maximum amount of fun, even in periods of low water levels.
The specific equipment, which includes a complete neoprene wet suit, harness and approved helmet, all provided by Alpin Action. We recommend to bring your own swimsuit and towel.
Our head office is located in Trnovo ob Soči, a small village surrounded by nature where peace still reigns, halfway between Kobarid and Bovec, in the middle of all the most beautiful itineraries. This means more time for canyoning and less time spent in transfers, considering that once the descent is over, in a few minutes you can get back to your car.
A cafe with services, minimarket and free private parking for our guests complete the offer.
