Canyoning is an activity that is progressively growing in popularity. This is because of the diverse range of activities it offers whilst adventuring your way through a Canyon or Gorge setting. Abseiling, cliff jumping, rock sliding and braving waterfalls are all in the day of a life of a Canyoner.

We may not be hiring new guides at this moment, but we are always on the lookout for new staff who can continue the enthusiasm and fun for our guided tours that we promote at Behana Canyoning. To be a Canyoning guide on Team Behana, we are not only looking for people with technical rope and rigging ability, but also with a love of outdoor adventure and a passion for meeting and interacting with people from all over the world.

We strongly promote local employment and aim to employ guides who have a desire to stay with Behana Canyoning for more than just a few months.
