Canyoning is hiking, jumping, leaping, rappelling, abseiling, swimming and sliding down a usually wet slot canyon, with pools of water, running water, and/or waterfalls. Technical Canyoning in this case is associated with technical descents, such as those that require rappels (abseils) and rope-work, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swims.
The location for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes with spectacular waterfalls. The locations to perform this sport are sometimes easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis of this sport is based on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty.
