Canyoning Excursion- Tamarind Falls- Full Day
This full day canyoning excursion in Les Sept Cascades is by far the most exciting one, including the highest rappels and most dramatic scenery, including a splendid 55m challenging waterfall.
The trip starts at 8.30am with a safety briefing and introduction on basic roping techniques. A small hike leads you to the first waterfall of 15m where participants get the first feel of abseiling for real. You will then progress in the canyon by rappelling on the vertical descents, walking on the horizontal parts and swimming into the water. During the excursion, you will abseil down the steep rocks with a harness, a rope interwined within several carabineers, a wetsuit and a helmet for sheer excitement and adrenaline. For the more courageous, it is possible to test your courage by jumping from the waterfalls into the water.
You will enjoy a picnic lunch in front of the beautiful waterfalls. To wrap up the day, you will have a steep hike but the wonderful views certainly make up for it.
This excursion is about local residents discovering one of the most beautiful sites our island has to offer along the canyons. The trip will end around 3.00pm.
- Water will be available during the trip
