Adventure Activity" Canyoning:
Exploration traveling down an incredibly beautiful canyon (Santa Catalina)
just 30 minutes away from our office. How? - by walking, sliding, rolling
and abseiling (rappelling) down waterfalls dressed with neoprene wet suits
and Petzl harnesses and equipped with special static "Mammut"
This is not a trip for the faint hearted. This is the full-on adventure trip. Expect to feel the adrenaline pumping! Only those who want a real adventure should participate. Fitness is NOT required - but some guts are!
Meet at Arassari Treks cybercafé and office at 9 am on the departure day. Put on the wet-suits and drive 30 minutes to the location. Expect some amazing views of Mérida (possibly the best available). Another 30 minute walk (mainly downhill) to the site. Some abseil training is given - then it's
time for the adventure of your life !!! There are several small "chutes" to slide down, a heart pounding 7- 8 meters natural hydro slide (where you will get airborne !!), and three powerful waterfalls to abseil (rappel) down including a 35
meter monster at the end. The trip will return around 4pm (depending on numbers and speed). The actual time in the canyon is around 4 hours app.
A real hard-core adventure, can you handle it?!!
