Canyoning (also known as canyoneering) is the sport of travelling down canyons using a variety of techniques including walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, swimming and etc. It requires navigational skills, rope work, and other skills required for wilderness travel.

Hiking down a canyon that is non-technical is called canyon hiking or just plain hiking. The terms Canyoning and Canyoneering refer to technical descents - those that require either rope work (rappels or abseils), technical down-climbing, technical jumps or technical swims.

In most parts of the world, canyoning is done in wet, mountain canyons - those with water flowing in them. In the Malaysia, descending wet mountain canyons is called canyoning.

Canyons that are good for canyoning are cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow slots with drops, beautiful sculptured walls and spectacular waterfalls. Although many of the best canyons are cut into limestone, other common rock types include granite and sandstone. Canyons can be very easy or rather difficult, though emphasis in the sport is on aesthetics and fun, rather than pure difficulty. Significant water flow can make canyons very treacherous, and require special rope work techniques for safe travel. Canyons that are narrower than six feet (two meters) are called slot canyons. Canyons that are very narrow, especially those narrower than humans, require special techniques to climb through and over, and can be very strenuous.

Canyoning can be dangerous. Quite often, escape out the sides of the canyon is not possible, and completion of the descent is the only possibility. Fatalities have occurred as a result of flash floods, the most infamous of which happened when a group of tourists on a commercial canyoning.

Canyoning gear includes climbing hardware, static ropes, helmets, wetsuits (not in Malaysia); and specially designed shoes, packs, rope bags and etc.

Canyoneering involving rappels or technical climbing is commonly know as, "technical canyoneering." Technical canyoneering can also involve escaping from large, "potholes" that are too deep to stand up in and whose walls are too smooth to use to climb out of the feature. Canyoneers have developed several unique and creative devices to escape these, "potholes" and, "keeper potholes." These devices include hooks used for aid climbing attached to long poles and various techniques involving the throwing of weighted bags attached to climbing ropes over the lip of the pothole.
