The history of canyoning

For anglers and speleologists

From a long time and on all inhabited continents, reckless fishermen have ventured into many underground rivers, caves and narrow gorges. At this time when canyoning was not yet born, fishermen explored new cavities to catch something to eat and survive.

Other more inaccessible sites had speleologists as their first visitors. Among these pioneers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Édouard-Alfred Martel, Armand Jamet and Lucien Briet are the most famous.

A brave exploration

Exploring canyons more than a century ago was not easy. On top of that, the precarious material, history and mythology did nothing to help. Many legends have continued creating a fear and a certain apprehension of these mysterious environments. Explorers who had the courage to venture into the meanders of rivers can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

The evolution of equipment

On the equipment side, forget the shoulder belts, the descenders, the blockers or other essential equipment today for the practice of canyoning. The equipment was simply a rope and a wooden board. These once assembled elements gave birth to a rudimentary swing, allowing adventurers an incursion into the world of canyons. It was not until the 1980s that this activity became democratic and became an outdoor sport more widely practiced and more or less accessible to the general public.
