Practice Canyoning safely

First of all, it is important to wear a neoprene wetsuit. This will keep your body warm in cold water and protect your skin from abrasions and scrapes. A wetsuit of 5mm thickness is generally advised, but this will depend on water conditions. Next, you will need a helmet to protect your head from drops and rocks that may fall from the top of the wall. It is recommended to opt for a sports helmet made of hard plastic, which is both light and resistant. You will also need special shoes for canyoning. They should have a rubber sole for optimal grip on rocks and slippery bottoms. Shoes should also be tough enough to protect your feet from sharp rocks.

It is recommended to wear a harness for abseiling. Choose a comfortable, durable harness that can be easily adjusted for a precise fit. Finally, don’t forget safety accessories such as ropes, carabiners and descenders. It is important to check that all equipment is in good condition and to test it before setting out on your adventure. In summary, canyoning is a fun activity but requires careful preparation. Dress appropriately and equip yourself with the necessary safety accessories to ensure a safe and memorable experience.
