Today, be prepared for canyoning, a descent down rocky creek beds that run through streams or gorges dug into the rock. You will overcome waterfalls, drops, and ponds, just using ropes. If you are not tired enough, in the afternoon you will ride the river rapids (rafting) aboard special dinghies, overcoming natural obstacles such as stones or rapids that the watercourse presents.
