Frequently Asked Questions
Is Canyoning Dangerous?
Canyoning is an adventurous sport. There are inherent risks. However, with proper instruction, and the right equipment, canyoning is a safe and enjoyable experience. That is why we only use professional guides and certified equipment.
What footwear should I bring?
You'll need to bring shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Our activity involves hiking and slippery ground, so bear that in mind. We'll provide you with neoprene socks to wear inside.
How do I book a tour?
Make an enquiry via Line, Kakao, email, Whatsapp , our website contact page, or by phone. Let us know your preferred dates and the details of your group. We'll inform you of our availability and guide you through the rest of the process. Bookings are secured with a 50% deposit.
How fit do I need to be?
None of our approach hikes are particularly strenuous. The guide will set a pace for the tour that suits you. Please advise us of all medical conditions during the booking procedure, and we will help you determine whether or not the activity is appropriate.
Is Canyoning ok if it rains?
Don't be put off by the rain - you're going to get wet anyway!
We constantly check the water levels to ensure it is safe. It is often the case that a bit of rain makes the canyon more fun,
What Swimwear should I bring?
The first part of our canyoning tours begin with a hike, so we recommend bringing shorts and a rash vest.
How do I pay?
Once we've reached a point in the booking process, where you are ready to confirm a date, we will send you payment instructions for the deposit - by paypal or direct Korean bank transfer. The balance can be paid the same way or settled in cash on the day of the tour.
What if Seoul's air quality is bad?
If there are government alerts about the air quality in Seoul, you don't need to stay indoors - the air quality close to the streams, and within the wooded valleys, is much cleaner and safer.
Where do we change?
We change at the cars. We'll provide you with a changing poncho and mat. If you prefer, you can come to the activity with your swimwear already on, underneath your normal clothes
What about insurance?
We have full liability insurance. If however, you are injured or have an accident as the result of your own fault, you'll not be covered by our insurance. This is standard policy. We advise you to take out your own personal insurance if you feel it is necessary.
What if I can't swim?
If you can't swim, do not worry. We'll provide you with a buoyancy aid (life jacket), and our guides will be especially attentive when you are in the water.
Can I bring a camera?
If you have a waterproof camera, you can bring this along. We advise attaching it to a neck lanyard, and also a float. Our guides can't be responsible for your camera, however.
What if I get too scared on a jump or rappel?
We are confident that our guides can coach you through most jumps or rappels. If however, they aren't for you, there are always alternative paths of descent in our easy canyons.
