Gorge Swimming

FIGHT YOUR WAY UPSTREAM AGAINST THE FLOW

clambering up small waterfalls, swim through calmer sections and jumping into deep pools.
Gorge Swimming - Main - 1600 x 600

Description

Gorge swimming is absolutely fantastic fun!
Equipped with wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets this is a more ‘adventurous’ version of Gorge Walking. Fight your way upstream against the flow, clambering up small waterfalls, swimming through calmer sections and jumping into deep pools. When you reach the top just turn round and float or slide back down to the start.
This is a really thrilling sport and you’ll have an amazing time. There is full instructor supervision at all times and believe me they will be having a great time too!
