Having a high-quality neoprene wetsuit is crucial for a successful and comfortable canyoning experience, especially when exploring wild canyons like Hrcavka.

To ensure your body stays warm and protected, we use only the best canyoning wetsuits from Seland, a renowned manufacturer known for their commitment to quality products. Founded in 1984, Seland offers a range of equipment for canyoning, surfing, fishing, and other outdoor activities, with a focus on durability, functionality, and comfort.
