This is for the adventurous, where you fly down the rapids in a wet suit and flippers and with a float to steer your way. Guaranteed thrills each time!

Under the watchful eye of a mountain guide and equipped with a helmet, wet suit, harness and ropes, you abseil down a waterfall, jump into deep pools and slide down smaller falls.
