If you like to pit yourself against nature then canyoning is for you - you don’t need to have any particular skills, just guts of steel. Canyoning involves jumping from a great height, usually the top of a waterfall or a canyon, and descending in stages through water by slipping, sliding, abseiling, walking and sometimes falling (controlled falling of course) to the bottom.

The best canyoning spots are sloping waterfalls or places where rivers have cut into the lip of a gorge or canyon, the most important thing is that the water you’re jumping into is deep enough to stop you from breaking anything and that the rapids aren’t vicious enough to drown you if you get stuck.

Scotland’s Inchree Falls is a good spot to take the plunge, the water is freezing but the views are spectacular and it supposedly looks a lot more difficult than it is, the waterfall forming natural, deep platforms. It's also one of the tallest commercial canyoning sites.

Canyoning is also known as kloofing, gorge jumping or canyoneering, but it still equals jumping off a waterfall…
