Please choose between 4 different activities: 

The canyoning tour in the Chli Schliere near Alpbach is one of the most beautiful and interesting canyoning tours in German-speaking Switzerland. We will try jumps of different heights and long slides, but there is always a way to  get around difficult spots by roping down, if one of the participants does not feel comfortable. The highest rappelling point is at 18 meters. The whole tour will take 2-3 hours.
