When you face a fear or shove yourself beyond your comfort zone; you are in fact fighting against yourself, for yourself. You are fighting that voice that says you cannot, for the heart that knows you can. In that process, there is growth that cannot be put into words.
Nature is the greatest teacher of all. It teaches us not to fixate on our goals but to focus on the present steps instead. It teaches us to accept that things cannot and will not always be within our control, that the world does not revolve around us; it teaches us to let go of the things that are beyond our control and to focus on those that are. There are countless more lessons that you will learn and that we will all share together over a delicious meal, around a bonfire, in the middle of the mighty mountains amongst like-minded women!

Snake canyon is the perfect combination of abseiling, cliff diving, rock sliding, canyoning and hiking. This 6–7 hour adventure will get your heart pumping and adrenaline racing all while in a safe and comfortable setting. So what is abseiling? Abseiling is the act of lowering yourself into the canyon using a double rope that’s anchored at the top of the rocks. Although it may seem thrilling, it is one of the safest techniques in climbing, and requires no technical skill or previous experience. You will have the choice to lower yourself, controlling your own speed; or asking one of the Grasp The Adventure team to lower you slowly. Besides abseiling from edges over 25 meters high, we will also have opportunities to cliff dive off 7-meter edges. Of course, the option to climb down instead is always available… but we highly recommend that you attempt to face your fears! The rest of the adventure takes us swimming in narrow gorges and through incredible caves. Although it does not require any technical experience, 7 hours of hiking and swimming can get very exhausting. Therefore, this trail is recommended for those with moderate fitness levels and who are generally active.
