Canyoning Adventure Day
Canyoning involves the use of abseiling, jumping and sliding to get from the top of a canyon to the bottom. It involves the use of mountaineering and white water skills to successfully descend a canyon, and canyons can be anything from a steep wide open river, to a deep narrow slot canyon only a couple of feet wide. Gorge walking could be considered an element of canyoning, and usually involves ascending an easy angled stream without the use of any ropes or other technical equipment. Most importantly canyoning is a lot of fun.
For your Adventure Day with Ancrum, you will meet us at our base at Ancrum Outdoor Centre for 9am start. A Parent or Guardian must attend the Centre to complete registration process and confirm emergency information is correct at drop off time and inform admin team of pick up arrangements for 5pm. Our instructors will greet you, explain what is going to happen and then get you kitted out for your day of adventure. They will provide you with a wetsuit, wet gloves, wet boots, wet socks, buoyancy aid and privacy changing gown. You will get a yaksak bag to keep your clothes, towel and packed lunch in, don’t forget to bring plenty to drink. When ready to leave the Centre, your group will head off in one of our mini buses to your chosen adventure destination. If you are not a good traveller please make sure the instructor is informed. Sometimes at the end of an activity, the instructors may stop off at a shop / café for a drink or ice cream prior to the journey back to the Centre, therefore, if you want to buy anything bring a pound or two, remember this is optional!
