If jumping off 7 metre high cliffs, sliding down natural river slides and being lowered over 15-20 metre high waterfalls is your idea of having fun, then the extreme sport of Edinburgh cliff jumping is probably right up your street.
This day starts with a safety and equipment briefing before being kitted out with wetsuits, neoprene socks, life jackets and helmets.
After taking the short journey to the river mouth your ultimate adrenaline rush begins with a spectacular 100 ft abseil down into the gorge itself, an experience that can only help to prepare you for the thrills and spills ahead. Be prepared to test your nerve to the extreme against features such as the Devil’s Run, a 30 ft leap from a sloping slab of rock into the deep, dark waters below during the adrenaline thrilled day you will swim through rapids, jump cliffs, navigate huge waterfalls and rock scramble. Canyoning is a unique new sport undertaken in spectacular scenery where the thrills are guaranteed.
The sport of cliff jumping (also known as gorge walking or scrambling) has really taken off in Scotland in recent years as more and more people try it for themselves and realise just how much fun it can be.
Described as being like caving with the roof off, our gorge-walking trips allow you to test your mettle against the rugged and taxing terrain carved out over the centuries by the chaotic frothing waters at the bottom of the ravine.
Gorge walking takes you through an exhilarating landscape of waterfalls, plunge pools, rocky outcrops and fast-moving torrents sandwiched between sandstone walls up to 100 ft high. Our experienced guides will help you negotiate the gorge, scrambling from pool to pool over ledges, ridges and other challenging rocky obstacles.
While a degree of fitness is required to participate in our canyoning outings, our guides will tailor each trip to the capabilities of your group, so you’ll never have to tackle anything beyond your abilities.
Edinburgh Cliff Jumping : Equipment
Expect to get wet when canyoning in Scotland! Don’t worry, though: we’ll provide all the equipment you need to stay safe and (relatively) comfortable, including:
OTHER STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW:
As the water in Scotland can be very cold in the winter we wait until May in order to start Canyoning. The activity then runs until the end of September depending on water levels.
Canyoning does not require you to be hugely fit however as it is a full half day activity – a certain level of fitness is required i.e. the ability to walk up a small hill without dying
MINIMUM NUMBERS- Maximum group numbers are 16.
PACKAGES – Edinburgh Cliff Jumpingis included in our Adrenaline Rush 2 night multi activity package
ED STAG TIP OF THE DAY
Gorge walking in Scotland takes you well off the beaten track and into an exciting maelstrom of rocks, rushing water and all-out adventure! Probably better to leave the Iphone on dry land. This is adventure is not for the faint of heart. If in doubt please restrict your alcohol consumption the night before to a maximum of 20 pints of Stella.
