What is Canyoning

Canyoning (or “Canyoneering“) is an exciting sport in which adventurers explore wild canyons from point A to point B. To get there, they must use a combination of hiking, scrambling, climbing, rappelling, wading, and swimming techniques.

Usually, Canyoning requires ropes, harnesses, and other specialized equipment.  According to Red Bull, Canyoning is the One of the world’s fastest growing adventure sports.

It’s basically the descent of a river canyon like Hrcavka using various techniques and methods. Canyoning is the ultimate adrenaline adventure for everyone who likes, jumping, swimming, water sliding, abseiling in clear water and walking in wild nature.

The Hrcavka canyon is one of the most gorgeous wild canyons, located in the National Park Sutjeska.  The narrow canyon of the river Hrcavka has many verticals (up to 10m), waterfalls, deep natural pools, and waterslides.

Quite often we’ll abseil or rappel down waterfalls. We can jump many times in the water and we can slide down. There’s also a lot of swimming, walking and climbing throw this beautiful canyon Hrcavka. It’s all of that stuff thrown together.
