Fort William Extreme Canyoning Adventure

Been canyoning before? Ready to step it up a level? Try this one out for size...

This full day adventure based in Fort William will test your head for heights, as you go up against 9m jumps, 12m slides and 90m abseils whilst descending down this epic, challenging canyon.

Vertical Descents pioneered canyoning in Scotland, and almost 20 years on they have near-unrivalled experience in this wilderness; meaning they have access to places others can't go - and they'll be taking you with them!

This experience is not for the feint of heart - you'll want to bring a strong head for heights and some previous coasteering or canyoning experience with you. Do that, and you're in for one of the most intense days out available anywhere in the UK!

Due to the more specialist nature of the extreme canyoning adventures, please contact us prior to booking.

Duration (Exact): This is a full-day adventure.
Booking Availability: Vertical Descents can run extreme canyoning adventures between April - October. Sessions start at 9:30am. The minimum group size for a session is 2 so if you book solo you will be teamed up with others; the maximum group size is 8. After booking you will be contacted to arrange your session.
What's Included: All equipment is provided by the centre.
What You'll Need: We recommend you don't bring your own wetsuit, as canyoning involves a lot of climbing across rough surfaces that could cause damage. Just bring something to wear under a wetsuit (swimming clothing is advised), some old trainers, a towl and warm clothing to wear afterwards.
Ability Level Requirements: This is an advanced canyoning adventure; we recommend some previous canyoning or coasteering experience. You should be confident in rough water wearing a bouyancy aid, happy with abseiling large descents, and jumping into water from heights greater than 8m.
Physical Requirements: A sense of adventure is the key requirement! The Minimum age is 18 for this advanced experience. A reasonable level of fitness is required, as you will spend the day climbing, abseiling, jumping and swimming through this demanding canyon.
Instruction/Guiding Details: You will have a guide with you throughout this experience.
Getting There: You will either meet at the Vertical Descents HQ or at a meeting point agreed with the team when they contact you to confirm your booking.
