Our canyons in the Allgäu provide for an unforgettable experience with clear pools, high jumps, rock slides and roaring waterfalls. This tour is suitable for all beginners who are active and enjoy sports. In a narrow and washed out gorge, you will come across many jumps (voluntary) and abseiling passages through waterfalls. The highlight is a gigantic water slide. But don't worry! Any sections that are too far outside your comfort zone can be avoided without problem. That way, beginners can also enjoy the canyoning tour without feeling forced. Having fun is the main focus of the tour.

Our meeting point is at our outdoor camp Allgäu in Blaichach (car park available). Upon arrival, we will help you get familiarized with the safety equipment. Then, you will drive your own car to the gorge. Once there, we embark on have a 20-minute walk to reach the edge of the canyon. Before you enter the ravine, you will receive a detailed introduction on what to expect and how to stay safe.
- Tour:
Now it's time to start the tour. Abseiling, jumping, slipping, climbing, a unique natural experience begins. If you don't dare to do a jump, there is always the opportunity to walk around or to overcome the obstacle with the help of a rope.

After the tour, you have earned a cool drink that you can enjoy right at the exit. Later, you are invited to return to the base with us, where you can enjoy a shower and relax. On request, we can also organize a BBQ for you and your group.
