    Experience canyoning tours in Bali! If you are looking for fun and adrenaline-filled adventure, it is for you. It's ridiculously fun and extremely safe provided you go with an experienced instructor.
    This activity is an ultimate outdoor adventure and sport using a variety of techniques that may include walking, abseiling, jumping, sliding down natural slopes and swimming in white water for aquatic canyons. And of course discover beautiful and hidden place at the heart of Balinese nature!
    For me it is #1 activity to do in Bali
