Description

Gran Canaria Canyoning

Canyoning is definitely one of the most spectacular options we have to discover the impressive mountain landscapes of Gran Canaria. It consists of descending a ravine or canyons following the course of the water. Therefore, different exercises are combined: walking, jumping, uncorking, swimming, abseiling and besides enjoying! For the Canyoning tour you will receive all necessary equipment as neoprene suit, helmet, harness and carabineer. Under professional supervision you will learn the skills to move safely in a canyon, including proper jumping and sliding positions, and basic rappelling technique. The canyons explored depend on the season here on Gran Canaria. Previous canyoning experience is not required; however participants should be in good physical condition, be able to swim and have no fear of heights or water.

Please note that the activity is held in different canyons in the winter and summer season. The change of location is necessary due to the presence of water. In contrast to the winter canyon, the summer canyoning does not offer the possibility for jumps and slides. The place is suitable for rappel and remarkable due to its striking natural beauty.

I you are searching for a more action packed and adrenalin thriving activity we recommend to book Coasteering during the summer month.

    We had a very nice day! Our guide was very sympathetic and explained everything very well! We also felt very safe during the tour. The tour itself is a lot of fun and needs some willpower. But that’s the great thing about canyoning …

    Super fun and a cool adventure! This way we saw Gran canaria from a very different side. Would do it again any time!

    Sarah

    The Canyoning tour was memorable. We could saw gran canaria as a hauntingly beautiful island, because we have seen places where standard tourist don’t see anytime. Further was the tour a highlight for us because we don’t have done such a long abseiling anytime before. …
    The guide explained everything really well and clearly before we start the abseiling or the jumps, so that we felt safe the whole time.
    … So try it, you wouldn’t regret.

    Tobias

    We were picked up directly by the hotel and then drove to a wonderful and unspoilt ravine in the inland. We were also told that we are the only one in the group, so it would be a private tour. The price did not increase. The tour guide usually keeps the group small. He was always making jokes.
    The best was that he brought a camera and didn’t only take pictures of us climbing, but also of the landscape. Snacks and drinks were included. Safety standard and the equipment were good.
    Absolutely recommendable!

    A great experience; A mixture of hiking, climbing and abseiling along a beautiful stretch of green in the course of several waterfalls. The pickup at the hotel was super-punctual and we had a great, friendly and competent guide. The group of eight people was mixed (Germans, Belgians, Spaniards, Italians) and we always felt well entertained and challenged.

    The guide picked us up from Playa del Ingles at about 9:00 in the morning and we went off to the canyon! It was a shaky ride (at the end) but a lot of fun!
    Once we started canyoning, we were explained everything about the canyon, temperature, water and environment of the canyon! It was very informative!

    As a “Beginner” I felt in good hands and looked after. The trip was challenging in the 2nd phase (ascent) and adrenaline. Great route!

    Nadine

    Whaaaaaaaaat was that? Only the best activity ever to do on your holidays! If you are bored of toasting on the beach – don’t miss this! Me and my boyfriend (both in late 20th) went on a Canyoning tour. It was amazing! I am somewhat into climbing whilst he is absolutely not but both of us really enjoyed the day! Two guys who led the group were super easy going but professional and I felt safe under their supervision and direction at all times! Our group consisted of 8 people, including two 13 years old kids. Everyone was well able for all the jumps and climbs but the guides were always there to help and support. It was my first time trying abseiling- and oh my – I love it!!!! The canyon was beautiful and we got to see Gran Canaria in a way you wouldn’t ever see it on a bus tour!

    We did this adventure in the group of five (2 couples and a friend). It was a challenge, fun and loads of new emotions with some extreme, lots of beautiful views and interesting activities. Definitely worth it!

    Nicole

    A great trip! Ari takes good care of everything, is a very nice guide and always asks if everyone is happy or in need of something. He sets a clear security framework within that you can unfold freely and jump away from the daily routine. I definitely recommend this activity.

    I absolutely loved this challenging experience and want to do it again! Victor was a lovely guy with lots of knowledge and patience!! Just to warn people it is quite physically and mentally challenging for middle aged mums like me and I am quite fit! But it was worth it and lots of fun! I did it with my 12 year old son and he also loved it! Thank you Victor!

    We had an amazing day. The team is awesome, and takes care of everything. It’s a unique experience, an opportunity to do something different than just sunbathing on the beach.It’s quite exciting although you should be a minimum fit.

    Tracey

    We’ve had a great Canyoning trip with a small group (4 persons). Victor is a great enthusiastic instructor who led us through the canyon smoothly. A nice easy descent in a forrest environment with slippery rocks, 5 abseils and a ‘lunch’ when we were down in the canyon. Recommended when you want to do something active in Gran Canaria and also want to see and know something from the island!

    Andrzej

    The highlight of my trip to Gran Canaria. I felt completely safe even though I am a total beginner. You have to overcome your fear a couple of times (like jumping into natural ponds of rain water from couple of meters) it really pumps the adrenaline high.

    The experience was great! Traversing down the river was an interesting and new adventure. We had a chance to scale down multiple small waterfalls and to slide down one of them. The guide was very active, professional and helpful with the activity. In addition, he was knowledgeable about the history of the island and nature of the island.

    What an awesome tour!! It was way better than we expected and even though my fiancé is afraid of heights – no problem since the guide is so professional and relaxed that there is no way you would feel unsafe. Nice waterfalls and shot slides made it an awesome day.
