Big Rock Canyons Home

Stand firm, take a breath… now jump!

If you like water sports, flying through the air & jumping off stuff…  then you’re going to love canyoning!


It’s many different sports and fun activities all rolled into one. Hiking, swimming, rappelling, cliff jumps, water slides and zip lines. We dress you to swim and add some technical gear for the rappels, zip lines and slides. Once in the canyon, it’s an outdoor mission from top to bottom, through, over, under and between, a natural water park!
