A 2day Canyoning Initiation training course set to introduce you to this challenging but above all fun travel experience. Set in the beautiful Pelion mountains in Central Greece, a team of experienced canyoning instructors take charge. The course is cerified by the ICTC/CAI. By the end of the weekend, not only would you have had the time of your life, you will get your first ICOpro certification.

Canyoning is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rapelling), and swimming.

This Canyoning course takes place in the forest of the Centaurs in Pelion, in Central Greece, a place of immaculate natural beauty. A few glimpses at the course photos will persuade you that this place is out of this world.

Canyoning is frequently done in remote and rugged settings and often requires navigational, route-finding and other wilderness travel skills.

Canyons that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. Most canyons are cut into limestone, sandstone, granite or basalt, though other rock types are found. Canyons can be very easy or extremely difficult, though emphasis in the sport is usually on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. A wide variety of canyoning routes are found throughout the world, and canyoning is enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.

Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, static ropes, helmets, wetsuits, and specially designed shoes, packs, and rope bags. While canyoners have used and adapted climbing, hiking, and river running gear for years, more and more specialized gear is invented and manufactured as canyoning popularity increases.

The Canyoneer Initiation course consists of the following:

  • The brief initiation will take place during the fun tour and will make you autonomous enough to go for safe descents.
  • You will be supervised by an ICOpro Instructor and an Assistant.
  • At the end of the tour, you will receive your certificate and a Canyoneer Card.
