Is it necessary to have experience to do canyoning?
It is not necessary to have experience to participate in the activities of canyoning.
Some canyons such as the Miraval canyon and the Viandico canyon have no obligatory obstacles. That is, jumps, slides and rappels-abseiling (snapling) can be avoided by walking, so you decide what you want to do and what not.
The only obligatory thing is to swim and walk.
Tip: Do not travel the same day of the activity, sleep the night before in our area. If you do not do so, you will not be sufficiently rested and energized to do the canyoning activity.
