Canyoning for people with disabilities -
adaptive canyoning

Outdoor experience for everyone: adaptive canyoning in the Allgäu

People with physical or cognitive impairments are mostly excluded from the canyoning experience. At first sight, this seems logical. After all, canyoning is about overcoming various obstacles in gorges and mountain regions, which even demand a big deal of professional canyoningists without impairment.

On the other hand: people with disabilities are not generally dependent on complete accessibility. They prove this not only in everyday life, where even a trip on public transport can take on adventurous proportions. This is also proven by the many great athletes who take part in the Paralympics, Special Olympics, Deaflympics and other sporting events for people with mental or physical disabilities.

So why shouldn't it be possible to offer canyoning in the Allgäu as barrier-free as possible? We at purelements dealt with this idea years ago. We cannot carry out completely barrier-free canyoning in the Allgäu either.

However, we offer our special adaptive canyoning tours in the Allgäu for everyone who is cognitively or physically restricted, but fit enough to take part in a guided canyoning tour. They are suitable for people with:
• impairment of walking
• visual impairment
• hearing impairment
• cognitive impairments

Unfortunately, the courses are not suitable for wheelchair users and people with:
• plegia
• paralysis
• high degree of limitation due to paresis

We would be happy to discuss with you or you personally on the phone whether and which adaptive tours we are currently offering in the Allgäu and how much canyoning experience you think you can do.
