Canyoning in the Ötztal Valley

Action & adrenaline guaranteed

Canyoning involves climbing steeply-angled clefts set in a steep-sided valley, finding a way down to a rocky river bed and making your way back down to the valley by way of river – sometimes scrambling through rapids, being swept along natural rock chutes and abseiling down waterfalls.

You are with guides who know the river and waterfalls like the backs of their hands and choose the route according to the group‘s abilities and preferences. Jumps from heights up to 16 meters await you on the secured routes. This blend of water and rocks, climbing and hiking, jumping and swimming is a truly unique challenge for all senses.

Canyoning Highlight: Auer Klamm

Canyoning means exploring gorges, narrow valleys and riverbeds. It involves not only climbing, hiking and abseiling but also many more adventures at the heart of nature.

One of Europe‘s most scenic canyoning spots is the Auer Klamm gorge which features several difficulty levels for all ages and abilities.

Extremely steep water chutes, abseiling from dizzy heights into rushing waterfalls, jumps from up to 16 meters for daredevils – pure adrenalin for all those in search of truly unique adventures of a very special kind. The Auer Klamm can be found amidst unspoilt nature landscapes and offers splendid canyoning tours up to 5 hours.
