As challenging as it sounds at first, canyoning in Ötztal is also a highlight for those who are inexperienced in gorges. On a guided tour you can confidently leave the choice of route and equipment to the professionals. The certified guides start with a detailed safety introduction in the group and show the correct behavior in the canyon, including climbing, sliding and jumping techniques. Even when out and about, the professional instructors always keep an eye on all participants. Transfers to the access point and back to the home base of the respective provider are usually included in the tour price. You can really only concentrate on one thing: the weaker self on the chain, or better on the climbing rope. To calm your nerves, you can avoid some tricky spots that are not suitable for all on a separate “chicken line”.
