One of our most adventurous weekends!  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! This trip is family friendly and suitable for children aged 10 and above.

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.  The water in the upper section of the gorge is not there and is not likely to change in the near future.  The lower section, however, is still full of water!

Moderate: Up steep hills and down exposed ledges, with bouldering and some climbing.

Snake Canyon is not a hike.  You will be wet the entire 5 hours. You will be climbing, sliding and being lowered down huge rocks into pools that could be deep or shallow.  You will be surrounded by 100 meter rock faces that shade the sun, making the water even COLDER.
