I have just had the best day out with Ben and George in the Tummel canyon. It was awesome!! I’ve been canyoning a couple of times before, but this trip is great. All the waterfalls were abseils from 6m up to 22m, I now feel super confident abseiling and can’t wait to try another adventure with these guys. I could write an essay on how awesome it was and how amazing they both are but I'm sure they are sick of my voice. Thanks Again

I have been lucky enough to have taken several canyoning training courses with The Canyoning Company, and have not been disappointed with any of them. Ben and George are fantastic instructors and the courses they provide are exceptional, whether it is a practical session in the canyon, a technical day at a training venue or a class room day in their riverside log cabin, the environment they create is an ideal situation to increase your knowledge, understanding and skills. Whether you’re just interested in finding out more or are truly passionate about Canyoning I can’t recommend taking one of their courses enough.
