5 good reasons to e xpérimenter the e canyoning : the descent rappel ice

It is not said that fa ily be without fear to enjoy the adrenaline coming with abseiling a wall g laced . Proof : m is vertigo imposing do I not stopped to have fun as a little crazy during my latest outdoor adventure in Quebec, close to the Mont St. Anne. Here are 5 good reasons for you to come and live a perfect half-day in nature to experience the joys of canyoning.

Overcome your fears

This is undoubtedly the primary reason for many outdoor enthusiasts – including me! – to take part in such an adventure. Are you motivated and inspired by the desire to overcome your small or greatest fears ? Canyoning will you area to live it all! In the company of Canyoning-Québec founder and owner-guide , Marc Tremblay, you will be perfectly accompanied on your day of adventure with two descents. A first aimed at assimilating and practicing the technique of rappelling on a rope – with harness and crampons – anda second real highlight of the show, you are bringing down the waterfall frozen in the fall of Jean-Larose River high of 30 meters. Chills guarantor is all in top of the course, halfway when one realizes the grandiose appearance of the fall and at the end, when we landed the soft little legs on a stiff and that rises the head to look at the extent of the road traveled.

Experience a different activity

Still little known by Quebecers, canyoning is NOT climbing, but rather vertical abseiling on a rope It is Canyoning-Québec that made it a winter activity by offering lovers of strong sensations to try this new experience on an icefall. Unknown, different, exciting and certainly unique, this is an activity that impresses and intrigues (yes, we are attached to a harness and a safety rope, yes, we wear c crawls that we prick in the ice during the descent and yes, all of this is safe and very well supervised by the two friendly guides on the ground) while definitely getting you out of your comfort zone.      

Enjoy Unique Views

There is of course the forest all around, but above all there is the mind-blowing point of view on this force of nature while we find ourselves hanging on it, huge bluish fall ! Okay, my vertigo and I might not have been able to take 100% of this unique vantage point of the surroundings (especially, in my case, not looking down), but I certainly was able to share with my new friends adventurers this exhilarating and indescribable feel very small in a beautiful natural i mmense .

Blend in with nature

From a short hike on a trail in the enchanting forest , to that of the return, more demanding , because taking the old wooden stairs (crampons!) Then a path in the undergrowth, the splendor of the winter landscapes has a soothing effect on beating hearts before and after activity. The idea is to soak up the silence and the quiet of nature all around, while stopping at regular intervals to admire the beautiful wilderness of the place, set your crampons and close their eyes to suck full lungs the fresh air from outside.

Forget the cold of winter

Dressed warmly, a helmet on the toque, crampons on the boots (good warm and rigid boots are also available for hire) and a safety harness well attached to the body, we quickly forget the cold of winter while we walk and get active in the forest. And if the early adrenaline wears off once solid ground has been reached and where it is colder (at the foot of the fall), the hot little Asian tea offered by the owner-guide Marc allows you to warm up just as much. than having a good time chatting between adventurers forever linked because all together and quickly became adept at canyoning.
