You’ll be climbing, sliding and dangling down huge rock faces into pools of refreshingly cold water! Swimming through, up and under waterfalls and sliding your way down the canyon! Due to the changing nature of the canyon, harnesses, helmets, wetsuits, and ropes (being lowered as opposed to jumping) are now a part of the adventure.
Snake Canyon is not a hike. You will be wet the entire 5 hours. You will be surrounded by 100 meter rock faces that shade the sun, making the water even colder.
You must be able to swim. This is a long day adventure which can leave you quite exhausted at the end of the day. Suitable for children 13+.
