An exciting full day Canyoneering trip just outside of Jasper National Park. This amazing adventure including 8 rappelled descents, waterfalls, pools , 800 m of Canyon and over 100 meters of vertical drop.
Safety is our number one concern, we run this program as a two day trip. Prior to descending the canyon, we start with a mandatory preliminary rappel/ascend clinic the day before. Day 2 we continue on to the boundary of Jasper National Park, and it is from here that we shuttle another 10 km along a lonely dirt road to the start of our adventure. A 30 - 45 min hike brings us to the top of the canyon. It is from here that we gear up and begin our 3 - 4 hour canyon descent.

Weather conditions can change quickly in the outdoors therefore it is essential to have proper equipment and even prepare for extreme conditions to ensure your comfort and most importantly your safety. Try to avoid cotton fabrics as they provide very little insulating value when wet and are very slow drying. Rely mainly on fleece, wools and synthetics as these fabrics still provide substantial insulating value even when wet (which can frequently occur in the outdoors). In early and late summer it is not uncommon that 0 degress C or below freezing temperatures can occasionally occur, thus it is important to always bring enough warm clothing. When selecting equipment pay attention to quality as this may greatly enhance your enjoyment and comfort. Do not bring external frame backpacks.
-Fleece jacket or fleece sweater
-Neoprene socks (optional but a good idea)
-Rain gear (water proof Jacket and pants Gore-Tex or equivalent)
