While this activity used to be purely for daredevils, it has started to become very popular with a wider range of people. Basically, canyoning involving jumping down into canyons and exploring what lies beneath. Typically, there will be water in these canyons, but on occasion, people will abseil down into dry canyons as well.
France is the perfect choice for canyoning, particularly with such lush landscapes filled with hidden waterways and deep rivers. There are, however, a few things that you need to know about canyoning before you start making these jumps. First, it can be highly dangerous even for trained individuals. Always make sure it is safe to jump by asking local experts and guides. Do not jump somewhere that people have deemed unsafe. Do not jump down if you don’t have an exit strategy.
