Trip 489: Canyoning in Hammana


A very unique and new activity that the Footprints Nature Club will give you the opportunity to experience this Sunday 28 July 2019
 
Canyoning in Hammana
 
As per Wikipedia, Canyoning (known as canyoneering in the U.S.) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rapelling), and/or swimming. 
 
We will experience this new activity in collaboration with the Hammana Municipality. 
 
During our trip we will be passing through several types of passages. So get ready for some real adventures. We will do rappelling, and sometimes we will have to jump into the water.
 
The level of this activity is Medium. It requires some fitness to do the activities and dare walking in the cold water of the river. 
 
We are limited in this activity with a maximum of 20 persons. Thus the priority for reservation will be given for the first callers. So don’t be late.
