What is canyoning?

When canyoning, we climb through a narrow, water-bearing gorge in the direction of the flow of the water. We overcome obstacles formed by water over millions of years, such as waterfalls, crystal-clear natural pools and impassable terrain.
We move running, walking, climbing and abseiling, depending on the tour there is the possibility of jumps and slides.
Together we experience the otherwise inaccessible nature in an unprecedented way, we are very close to the element of water and the element of rock. We feel a mixture of action and calm, one moment the water is pattering on the body and the next we marvel at this mystical patch of earth.

Canyoning abseilen


I install the necessary ropes professionally at anchor points specially provided for this purpose, then you tie yourself in under my guidance, load the canyoning harness, loosen your safety line and then slowly let the rope run through the eight. Your abseiling along the waterfall begins. Sparkling water massages your whole body and soul.

Canyoning Springen


Some of the natural pools are so deep that we can jump the small cliffs. Depending on courage and circumstances, jumps from a height of up to five meters are possible but never obligatory. Diving into the turquoise water is unforgettable fun.
You will learn the appropriate jumping techniques during the tour.

Canyoning Schwimmen


Sparkling clean water flows through the gorge between steep rock walls, the eye discovers great colors and the desire to swim in this water grows. This dream comes true with canyoning, experience a unique landscape with me and your Aida fellow travelers. Canyoning has a very high potential for addiction and combines action and relaxation.
