Introduction to canyoning (weekend) 1 ECTS credit

Outdoor activity where you will progressively learn the different canyoning techniques such as walking, swimming, jumping, tobogganing down slopes, siphons and descending on ropes... And, with safety always the top priority, you will discover wild, hidden natural paths with small caves, galleries and so on. It is essential to know how to swim. Teacher: Carlos Folguera.

Student testimony: "Canyoning was brilliant ! I’d do it again right now!! It was a completely new experience for me and, to my taste, much more interesting and spectacular than the iron routes (which I also loved). I especially I liked the ravine we went down with water. Totally recommendable and, what’s more, the monitors make you feel very safe at all times".  Marc Busquets Juncà, student of 4th of ADE.
