Gorge Walking

Known as ‘the little brother’ of canyoning, gorge walking is a less technical riff on canyoning, requiring neither ropes nor specific skills. The slower pace of this activity provides more time to explore and take in the unique, river-level view of the rocky, dramatic gorges. On a guided walk with the right equipment, gorge walking can be an incredibly exciting and interesting activity for both adults and older children.

Gorge walking involves travelling in canyons; deep ravines in the landscape which are usually carved by rivers, eroding the surrounding materials away. Widely considered a water activity, the techniques used to travel through these include a mixture of hiking, scrambling, climbing, jumping and swimming.
