This is a fun and exciting canyoning activity (hiking in water) suitable for most fitness levels. It is the best way to beat the heat and make the best of these fresh water pools. Learn to navigate on wet ground, jump and swim in freshwater pools, climb and scramble your way through a wadi. The activity is a mixture of canyoning and hiking so double the fun. Through this activity, you will get to experience one of the hidden gems of UAE. • The difficulty level of these canyons is 2 out of 10. • No rope skills or technical gear is required. • Limited amount of swimming is involved.

On this trip we have combined a little bit of hiking, scrambling and climbing. This is a medium level trip due to the balance required to navigate. However, it is not as physically demanding in terms of cardio. The bouldering can be challenging in some parts and a good understanding of this nature is required. However, this trip is not technical and no rope skills are involved. If you are sports active, have good fitness, and want to challenge yourself then this trip is for you.
