This is the definition of what I experienced a couple of days ago by the online Oxford dictionary:
canyoning /ˈkanjənɪŋ/ (also canyoneering) The sport of jumping into a fast-flowing mountain stream and allowing oneself to be carried downstream at high speed.
And this is what it looks like:
I surprised my BF with a canyoning tour to celebrate his birthday (the old chap is turning 32 tomorrow). We had our canyoning adventure in Ticino (Switzerland), where we both come from: it was so great to discover new beautiful natural places from our own native region. Watching the world from a mountain stream (in this specific case, the Boggera) while the flow is literally carrying you downstream as if you were a drop of water was amazing.
All in all: Best water park ever ;)!
