Canyoning in Reunion Island

 

The canyoning, what is it ?

The canyoning is a sport that involves descending into a river, more or less conceded depending on the erosion of the rock, and without boat. For those who do not like water, canyoning can be done without water, it’s called the “barancos” (dry canyon).

This natural erosion shape sometimes slides and large pools with clear water where you can jump up to 12 meters high for the most audacious people! When there is too high or when someone doesn’t want to jump, we can do an abseil or a zip line.
