Example text

Carved over time by meltwater running off the Alps, here the rocks are delightfully smooth, the water channels clearly defined and the route offers a variety of demanding obstacles. The canyon is suitable for confident, athletic people who want to be challenged, although fixed ropes throughout offer abseiling alternatives if you opt not to jump. No prior experience is necessary, but when you pick a helmet, choose carefully! Most companies print nicknames on their helmets. An idea born out of necessity to improve communication between you and the guides, your nickname may cause much hilarity among your group.

You must trust your guides completely, as they know what lurks underneath the surface of the water. ‘Jump. Then slide,’ the instructor repeats. It is hard to believe you need to throw yourself at the wet canyon wall in order to slip down into the pool below! Try not to think too hard about it, and on the count of three aim for the rock face. With so many layers of padding you feel virtually no impact and the water will quickly sluice you down. This is the most outrageous way to travel down a river canyon that you may have experienced yet.

With mountains in the distance and craggy beaches in the foreground, enjoy miles of breathtaking coastline. Straddle the padded box seat, lean back against the comfy backrest and hang on. The boat is a RIB, a ‘rigid-inflatable boat’ and for a few seconds the boat ploughs through the water. Once up on the plane, however, the RIB tears effortlessly across the surface, spray flying. The speed is exhilaratingly fast, the sea air brisk and fresh. You need to grip the handhold as the boat banks eastwards for a loop of Tralee Bay.
