Activity briefingThe canyon descents are made wearing wetsuits and carrying waterproof packs and containers. Bougainville provides all of the technical equipment you will need such as helmets, ropes and wet suits. The agency conforms to international standards of safety and uses materials of a high standard. All you need is a head for heights, the ability to swim, and a taste for adventure.
For canyoning, you need to have sturdy ankle boots, properly broken in before you arrive that can get wet and still be worn well. It is possible to twist an ankle without good, solid footwear and spoil the fun for everyone. Better to come prepared as even a sprained ankle can make you a casualty.
Bring at least two pair of socks to prevent foot blisters, and a thermal under-shirt. Even though you will be wearing a wet suit, a thermal undershirt will help to prevent the inevitable chilling from the canyon water. Know your water needs and bring at least 1.5 liters or more if you can carry it.
If you bring a camera, make sure it has some kind of cord to hold it around your neck or to your body as well as a waterproof cover suitable for such activities. A dry bag to hold your extra clothes when you finish your activity is often overlooked.
The best season for canyoning is from Mid-June until the end of September because the water level rises in the late winter and early spring and also because the weather is often too cold after the end of September.
We also offer a special Canyoning Week.

An adventure sport requires you to have a realistic awareness of your mental condition; be prepared to focus on the tour guide, his or her instructions and the event at hand. Knowing the limits of your physical condition is important. Unless a group is engaging in semi-professional competition, our adventure activities are meant to be FUN as well as challenging, therefore honesty about your physical fitness can determine the quality of your adventure experience.
