Canyoning at Starzlachklamm

Outdoor experience at its finest: Canyoning in the Starzlachklamm near Sonthofen

The Starzlachklamm is an absolute must for all those who want to learn canyoning in the Allgäu from the Pike on. The canyon was created by the persistent work of the River Starzlach, which made its way from the green through rocks and rocks.

Situated at the southern foot of the Grünten, the 1740-metre-high "Guardian of the Allgäu", the Starzlach region offers a picturesque ambience for all kinds of outdoor experiences in the Sonthofen region. For us, of course, canyoning comes first.

During canyoning we follow the path of the water. But we don't jump like the "Starzl-Ach" with an "Ach", but with a lot of Juchhei from the cliffs into the wonderfully shimmering gumps (voluntarily). In addition to jumping, climbing, abseiling, swimming, sliding or diving are the typical modes of co-use when canyoning in the Starzlachklamm.

Previous experience and the water level of the route determine its level of difficulty. The Starzlachklamm allows to vary the level in many ways. That's why families with children get the taste here as well as beginners or advanced canyoning.

The Starzlachklamm, classified as a valuable geotope, also has a lot to offer the naturalists among you. For example, coin-shaped fossils and fossils of rare crabs can be discovered in the rocks.
