A beautiful canyon that involves just about every canyoning technique possible. There are several exhilarating abseils straight down waterfalls, swims up to 50 metres, waterjumps and lots of rock scrambling. The stunning scenery of Claustral varies from dark, narrow chasms, to wider open sections where beams of radiant sunlight angle into the subterranean depths, highlighting the luxuriant carpets of hanging ferns and exquisite mosses that decorate the sculptured walls. Visiting Claustral canyon is no stroll in the park. It is a long, hard day. The walkout is steep and strenuous – approx. 4 hours on average – with several short scrambling sections. Claustral is a highly rewarding experience suitable for fit, adventurous people.
All BMAC full day participants receive a generous picnic lunch, provided by our local deli. Select one of their delicious, gourmet sandwich options when you book your trip. Altitude Deli can cater to most dietary requirements with notice, so please let us know of your needs as soon as possible.

- Water bottle – at least 1.5 litres
- Personal medication (Ventolin/EpiPen etc.)
Our Advanced Canyoning Adventures are no stroll in the park. They are long, hard days in remote locations. Participants must have a high level of fitness along with abseiling and canyoning experience. Blue Mountains Adventure Company reserves the right to deny access to anyone whose fitness and experience (in our opinion) is deemed to be inadequate for the adventure chosen, and/or who is a hazard to themselves or others.
Fitness: Participants are required to have a very high level of fitness. Advanced canyons involve long, hard days with many abseils and strenuous, steep walks out. Some exits involve scrambling or short rock climbs. All participants are required to carry a backpack throughout the day that may weigh in excess of 10kg.
Abseiling: Advanced canyons have numerous tricky abseils, and abseiling experience is essential.
Mobility: Participants are required to have good mobility as we will be moving through uneven terrain in a remote environment.
Swimming: This canyon involves swimming in very cold water for prolonged periods of time. If you have any concerns about your swimming ability, please contact our office.
If you have any questions or concerns, we’d be delighted to talk with you.
