Canyoning course lasting several days

Become a canyonist!

After completing this canyoning course, you will be well prepared for the aptitude test for canyoning training, you can take part in challenging, guided canyoning tours and actively participate in tour planning and implementation. Due to the shortness of the course and the lack of experience and knowledge, it is not possible to walk independently through gorges of all levels of difficulty.
The canyoning course is ideal for everyone who wants to deal more intensively with the sport of canyoning.

In our canyoning course, we convey a comprehensive basic knowledge of the sport of canyoning and provide assistance and advice on how to find important information and how to interpret it correctly. Both theoretical units and practical exercises in the gorges are necessary. We make sure that what we have learned theoretically can be experienced and consolidated immediately in practice.

What the participants say:

"Hello Philipp, the amount of what you have shown us and explained to us, I am still mentally reworking. It's just great how intensely and individually you approached each of us. My motivation to continue with canyoning is increased even more by the course. " Ulrich Kazmierzak, Technical Consultant, Lindau, summer 2016
