Basic canyoning

Canyoning beginners “basic” – your start into the adventure.

As a canyoning beginner you will receive all the necessary information before the canyoning tour and we will prepare you optimally for the water fun and the outdoor adventure in the gorge. After an initial safety briefing at the parking lot, we will equip you with your personal canyoning safety equipment including special canyoning shoes from Adidas® or Five-Ten®.

After a short ascent and further safety briefings, you will learn to abseil independently. Even on our canyoning tours for beginners, the independent abseiling is an important point, as good abseiling skills are the basis for our advanced canyoning tours and gorges in the Allgäu / Bavaria, in Austria or our canyoning trips.

When we have completed the abseiling exercise, we go into the water, the experience begins. Jumping, sliding, abseiling, all action follows and yet we enjoy the peace and wilderness of nature and the unique gorge landscape.

Jumping and sliding are always optional on our beginner canyoning tours in the Allgäu as well as on our sporty canyoning tours in Bavaria and neighboring Austria with its regions of Kleinwalsertal, Tannheimer Tal, Lechtal and Vorarlberg. With perfect preparation, good togetherness and an optimal selection of gorges, the day and your canyoning beginner experience will certainly be a pleasure.

Families and children? With our "Canyoning family" tours we offer special canyoning adventure tours for families and children. The canyoning beginners' tour in the Allgäu is also ideal for groups, clubs, bachelor and bachelorette parties. Many departments or companies also choose this canyon tour for a company outing or a team day.

This is what our canyoning beginner guests say: “I would never have thought before in my life that I would jump from a rock higher than 2 meters and would have otherwise bet something on it. But through your patient way of answering the question for the tenth time whether the water is really deep enough ... I was even able to go beyond my own limits and that was a great experience for myself as well as the great nature. " Carola Bruns, neurologist, Stuttgart, summer 2015
