Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Swiss Alps Beginner Canyoning Experience from Interlaken

Leap and splash through the water on your exciting canyoning experience

Start your beginner’s canyoning adventure with pickup from either of Interlaken's train stations, or from your accommodation in Interlaken or one of seven local municipalities. You’re transferred to the canyoning base to meet your guide and gather your safety gear, including a wetsuit to keep you warm against the chill of the mountain water.

Enjoy the 10-minute drive to the outskirts of Wilderswil along a scenic route beneath the Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger mountain peaks of the Swiss Alps. On arrival, it’s a short walk up the hill to the canyon entrance where you’ll snap on your helmet, harness and life jacket and receive a safety briefing. Put techniques you’ve learned into practice as you go abseiling (rappelling) 33 feet into the canyon and plunge into the water below.

Clamber up and leap off 20-foot (6-meter) rock ledges into surging white-water pools and slide through a series of chutes into plunge pools. Continue downstream to the final slide in the second canyon, and float along at your leisure while the water carries you down a natural channel, over a series of drops and into a deep pool of tranquil water below. Rest assured that your guides are on hand throughout the adventure to ensure your safety. 

At the end of your canyoning run, take a short walk back to the bus for the return drive to the base, where you can purchase a copy of your filmed trip through the canyons. Enjoy a shower and a refreshing hot drink before drop-off at your accommodation or train station in Interlaken, where your 3.5-hour tour concludes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

A highlight of our time in Switzerland! I was worried the beginner course would be boring, but this still pushed our group out of our comfort zone and we had a blast. Our two guides were really nice guys, and the beer at the end of the experience was a great touch. Wouldn't change a thing and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Canyoning was rained out, so we were put on a white water rafting trip with a bachelor party. We did not get the video because we were in the back of the boat behind all the ruckus. Overall, the guide was funny and good ,and the ride was cold, but fun.
