Let’s go Canyon Swimming!

From the parking lot, you go through the forest to warm up and head to the river.

Let’s get in the water first and get used to the cold water. After a swim, you walk along the riverbed a little and go to the core spot gradually.

Let’s float and move forward in many natural pools! I’m impressed by the clear and beautiful water.

You can enjoy the powerful scenery with the steep rocks standing around. Let’s go further upstream!

Jump from the big rock! You’ll have a thrilling experience.

Then, go back to the starting point while playing down.

Try the slider! It feels great!


It’s called canyoning to go down a mountain stream. It’s very fun to jump in and flow down.

If you want to swim, climb, jump in, and be flowed, I recommend canyon swimming.

Why don’t you have an exhilarating experience with your family and friends?
