Wir haben schon ein paar Canyoning Touren in Europa gemacht und waren wieder begeistert. Insgesamt ist das einfach immer wieder ein tolles Erlebnis. Diese Tour war eine gute Mischung aus relativ entspannter Wanderung durch das im Wald liegende Flussbett, aber es gab auch wirklich viele Sprünge für den Adrenalin-Kick. Insgesamt körperlich nicht zu anstrengend, wenn man ein bisschen Grundfitness mitbringt. Ein ganz großes Lob an den Guide, der gut drauf war und einem ein gutes Gefühl gegeben hat, sich die Sprünge zuzutrauen - und wenn es auch mal 2 Minuten gedauert hat. Man hatte kein Gefühl von Zeitdruck. Es war alles sehr gut organisiert: Vorher wurden die Größen abgefragt und Anzug, Helm und restl. Ausrüstung lagen parat, für Kurzentschlossene gab es ein paar Schuhe zum Ausleihen vor Ort. Rundherum eine super Tour!
