Canyoning with Serendipity is for all levels, from novice to advanced canyoneers. You’ll be exceedingly pleased with yourself that you can do it, even if you have a (very sensible) fear of heights. The photo on the left, above, is the “graduate” level, but we like to start you with something more reasonable.

We’re proud that we have introduced canyoning and rappelling to people with physical challenges, including blindness muscular disorders. Not to mention little old ladies (like the person who took these photos — she had to go first!). It’s not a matter of strength — it’s a matter of trusting others and the equipment.

You get wet, and sweaty, and usually banged up and bruised a bit, but in the end there is a real sense of achievement from canyoning. Serendipity shares with you the satisfaction of accomplishing something thrilling, challenging, and that you never believed you’d ever try to do.
