Scotland has the perfect landscape for canyoning and Active has canyoning at venues across the country. This is an activity that has become one of the UKs most popular extreme sports. The reasons for this are obvious.

What is Canyoning?

Canyoning involves launching yourself off cliffs into deep pools, sliding down naturally formed rock flumes and abseiling down waterfalls and deep gorges. You will get wet, you will get cold but you will have one of the most amazing adventures of your life! Equipped with the appropriate safety equipment and supervised by our expert guides you will be taken to the limit with this exhilarating sport.

Most gorges and canyons in Scotland have a combination of water and rock features requiring the ability to deal with deep fast flowing water and exposure. On grade 3/4 canyons descent by jumping or abseiling can be the only option.
