Canyoning in the Ötztal Valley

Canyoning is one of the most exciting summer water sports in the Ötztal. It 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.
