How to make canyoning like a pro

You can do canyoning in many places of the world where you can find canyons with water on the bottom: New Zealand, South America, U.S.A., Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland etc.

First lesson: once the abseiling begun, there is no way back. You must complete the descending!

Second lesson: a major danger by canyoning are the flash floods, also the accumulation of large water quantities in the canyon. In 1999 in Switzerland 19 tourists died during canyoning in the Alps because flash flood. Flas floods are possible even on nice weather, as the canyon collects water from a wide vicinity. So, I am bagging you to inform yourself about weather in a 100 km area around the canyon and about water level in the canyon.

Third lesson: use thermic suits in order to protect from hyperthermia and hypothermia. Always wear the helmet.

Fourth lesson: rescue operation in canyons are very difficult, as they are remoted isolated areas and the acces is not easy.

Following all these steps will allow you smooth abseiling in any medium difficulty canyon.
