The hardman's answer to a walk in the park, canyoning is the ideal counterpart to a stag weekend in Edinburgh! No-one will be able to call you a soft Southern sassenach after you've completed this gruelling trek through the dramatic countryside near the capital.
Edinburgh is blessed with one of the most epic locations in the UK. It's surrounded by an awesome coastline, hills and mountains. For your canyoning afternoon, we're sending your party into the hills with experienced guides. They'll find you a suitable ravine, burn or river, and get you kitted out for the adventure of a lifetime!
If you've ever heard of coasteering, canyoning is basically the same thing. The only difference is you do it through a ravine or rocky valley instead of along the coast. With helmets, buoyancy aids and wetsuits to protect you, you'll traverse the canyon in the straightest possible line - no matter what obstacles Mother Nature can throw at you...
Clamber over boulders, abseil down waterfalls and swim through rivers and mountain pools. Scramble down scree fields, trek along valley floors and free climb up rock faces. Your guide is there to get you through every step, and while you will be thoroughly challenged, you'll never be asked to do anything you can't finish.
Beer and whisky in the evening: full on wild man adventures during the day. Now that's what we call a fully loaded stag weekend. Hats off to you, sir!
