THE CANYONING COMPANY
GORGE WALKING WITH THE EXPERTS
We can’t wait to meet you and take you on your adventure
Canyoning is a very new adventure sport to hit the UK. If you were from the USA or Utah especially you would call it canyoneering. Canyoning is more of an exploration sport originally pioneered when mountaineers and cavers wanted to investigate and explore these deep canyons or gorges that cover most mountainous areas.
Over the last decade the sport grew and very specific skills were developed for safely getting down these canyons. So canyoning is going down, this throws a lot more into the mix, on a canyoning trip you will always encounter waterfalls where you will need to abseil yourself down, there will often be jumps, big slides or rock flumes, zip lines might be created to safely pass powerful waterfalls.
Canyoning is a lot more adventurous and dare I say it… full on than gorge walking, but with the right instructors with good experience, it is a very safe and extremely fun experience that will blow your mind!
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GORGE WALKING + CANYONING
So what is the difference between gorge walking and canyoning?
Well in short gorge walking is generally going up, and canyoning is going down. I suppose you could look at is as Gorge walking is more horizontal, whereas canyoning is more vertical.
On a canyoning trip you will definitely wear a harness, use ropes and see many waterfalls throughout the whole of your trip, groups will be smaller and with a good reputable company, instruction and training is given before undertaking your adventure.
