What is canyoning? Is it a new sport?

Canyoning is unique in the water sport world because it does not take place in the river. It occurs in the river subsidiaries, such as the ones around the Soča area where streams have been drilled for centuries to build perfect canyons. This wonderful place is reminiscent of water slide parks that vary in height and length. This location however consists of slides and pools in canyons built by the forces of nature!

Through the years, by means of erosion the river has created itself narrow and deep canyons that are ideal for exploring.

Further down the valley there are opportunities to jump into pools, swim and practice descending with a rope.

Everybody needs to make sure they have their own swimming attire, a towel, an extra T-shirt and something warm to wear once you get out of the cold water.
