Then we begin to descend in the Canyon, where is punctuated by many playful obstacles for more than 1 km, and you need a little technique to cross, while we can cross most of them by jumping and sliding.
In addition, we will have many jumps of 3, 4 meters, it is necessary to listen the advice and instructions of the instructor each time. In the end, there will be an impressive and technical jump of 7 meters, which is up to your own wish that to finish it with an acrobatic performance.
