About your host

I am passionate about canyoneering. I’ve descended more than 350 canyons in over 10 countries and even guided professionally in New Zealand and Tasmania for two seasons. I will show you the thrill of this wonderful and challenging sport.

What we’ll do

I will teach you how to scale and traverse rock face on this active adventure. We'll begin with a moderate 1.6-mile hike to the opening of a local canyon. There I'll explain the fundamentals of canyoneering and essential techniques. Once suited up with helmets and harnesses, we will put our new skills into action. Expect to sweat as we rappel our way into seldom-seen corners of the world.
