Abseil 220ft down England's highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls near Exeter, Devon for the Royal British Legion !

The waterfall is situated on the edge of Dartmoor's National Park, in the heart of Devon's Teign Valley, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon – absolutely stunning!

Why not get a group of friends/family or work colleagues together to take part and make a weekend of it.

No experience is necessary and full training will be given by our professional abseil suppliers on the day. However we do emphasise this is an extreme challenge. You will need to be fit to take part as there is a 15 minute walk up to the top of the waterfall area. You must be confident on your feet to be able to get to the top!

Minimum age to take part is 14 years old. All children taking part under the age of 18yrs, must have a signed parent/guardian consent form and must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian on the day of the abseil. Maximum weight is 20 stone (due to harness sizes)
