A not so gentle but extremely refreshing summer activity is one way to describe canyoning! Plunge yourself into mountain streams via a series of abseil descents, jumps and natural water slides.
Canyoning in Hakuba is an exciting and exhilarating activity from May to October. Canyoning is the sport of descending, well, canyons. Slide down waterfalls and splash in to deep pools that have been carved by millennia of fast flowing water.
Canyoning involves swimming, jumping, abseiling, using ropes, and cascading down whitewater chutes. Late spring and early summer have the highest water flow. There is some hiking involved to access the canyons, but about 80% of the time is spent in the water. Come and see why everyone is raving about canyoning in Hakuba.
