Do you have any questions?

Do you have any questions?

Everyone has their own comfort level, and our guides love to encourage participants to challenge their fears by facilitating a  safe and supportive environment.

If you experience severe vertigo or panic even at low height please contact us to discuss potential options.

If there are any doubts about fitness please contact us.

The approach to the canyon is often the most tiring part of the day. Expect a 1km hike at a slight incline finishing with a short steep section. We will return to the car along the same trail at the end of the day. The canyon descent itself is not very strenuous

 

 

Every tour is different so please read the information on the tour page. Please contact us for larger group bookings. We have previously organized events with up to 80 participants in a single day and can facilitate more with enough notice!
