This really is something you wont forget in a hurry!

Great for groups or individuals this multi hour activity is packed full of huge jumps, rappels and slides as you navigate your way down the canyon. The excellent staff offer three different canyons to cover all ranges of abilities.

River rafting

Water rafting is not for the faint hearted, if you fancy the idea of crashing white water all around you and don't mind a little cold water this will be perfect for you.

Bungee jumping

The Superb staff boast about this unique jump as they claim it is the most beautiful bungee location in the world. As you stand on the edge of the cable-cars open doors this one is sure to make even the most stable of knees quiver!
