Ready for a new exciting and “adrenalinemaker” challenge?

For the next Jun 1st (Sat) I propose you a really different, funny, unforgettable and thrilling (but safe) activity: a WET (!) CANYONING TREK through/along the Barranco* Poyatos (Cuenca), one of the best of its genre into the Sistema Central mountain range. During 5h we’ll go down, jump, swim, rappel and slide between waterfalls, big puddles, natural toboggans, rappels (one of them with 20m-65ft height) and stunning natural places and formations in the Serrania de Cuenca Natural Park.

And the best of all is that this activity is -in general- easygoing and NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED; nevertheless, you have to be in enough standard shape, not to be in panic at the minimum (…) and, over all, not to having VERTIGO and can SWIM (those last are mandatory EXCLUSIONARY REASON).

***** [the spot of our activity is only easy reached by car: therefore, we’ll need 1 car for each 4-5pax of us to access together to the starting point of the event and return to Madrid; then drivers, be so pleasant to share your vehicle with the rest of us and, of course, we’ll pay you the petrol costs, with some beers/wines&tapas and our eternal friendship for your kindness… (in any kind of negative sense or lack about this question, we’ll have to rent one or more cars -with consequent and proportional increasing of the final price for the activity- or, directly, cancel the event]

[DISCLAIMER I’m only a consul of this group playing as amateur mountaineer that enjoy practising this kind of activities and its planning and “leadership” (...), but not as a professional mountain guide and, of course, without any kind of money -or in every other sense- interest; so this event is come up as an outdoor journey between mates who enjoying such experience, and (I repeat) with non-profit interest of any type; therefore, this is a free -and gladly- day trip absolutely ON YOUR OWN in any case/time/moment/place/situation and I decline expressly any liability or claim of what type it is (legal, physical, monetary-financial, emotional, medical…) derived of any unpleasant situation like injury, loss (personal, material), illness, rescue, organic response (e.g. allergies), first aids and others, even death; so please, before your participation be sure you’ve well understood what is this activity about and aware of your enough abilities, good physical and mental condition and quality sports equipment in order to be perfectly responsible of yourself and your goods in any moment/situation; as attendee to this activity, you're explicitly accepting the all above disclaimer, also on your “rights of image” (e.g. pics shared between participants and/or uploaded on social media/networking or InterNations’ website eventually).]

[OPTIONAL+RECOMMENDED As a suggestion -and unless in case that the activity/event has expressly included it yet (mentioned in highlights), as when that’s running by a hired external service/enterprise-, I personally recommend to contract a SPORTS INSURANCE if you’re gonna practice a mountain sport/activity (e.g. ski, climbing, trekking, mountain bike, kayaking, rafting, paragliding, canyoning, endure, trail running, alpine sports, etc.) a bit demanding/risky into this environment, overall in order to cover the truly expensive involvement of an helicopter rescue team in your eventual evacuation (!?). In this sense, you’ve several options on the website, even some of them really complete-full from 10€/day or other modalities (weekly, monthly, yearly, expressly conceived for your specific travel…). But it’s up to you…]
