Abseiling

Abseiling is a fantastic way to face your fear of heights and experience the thrill of rappelling down a cliff. This is a great activity for the family and also team building events. Companies that offer this service ensure that your experience is enjoyable but above all safe. You will be helmeted and attached to the main rope and safety rope from your harness, then you will be gently lowered over the platform. Slowly the rope is let out as you make your way down the rock face, you will definitely improve with each attempt and you can go down as often as time allows.

Giving you control over how quickly or how slowly you descend, each descent can be tailored to the individual, making abseiling one of the most fulfilling outdoor activities.

Normally, the structure from which one jumps from would be a bridge with the river at the base, sometimes a hot air balloon and on some occasions jumping from a helicopter. Adrenaline lovers and travellers that want to try it for the first time go around the world looking for the best places to practice it. There are many places around the world where you can jump, some are natural sceneries of a beauty you can’t miss and others are man-made and have impressive dimensions.
