Course of the canyoning tour

  • We will meet at our Black Sheeps Adventures base in Wildalpen at the agreed time.
  • This is followed by filling in the list of participants, providing basic information.
  • Participants will be given the necessary equipment (Each person guarantees that the equipment is of the correct size and complete. Incompleteness of equipment is a hindrance to  canyoning.)
  • Transportation by own cars to the parking lot under the canyon follows.
  • Change of clothes – we recommend a towel and a swimsuit, changing is usually done in the car park.
  • Walking to the canyon – here we take only things that can get wet. On  warmer days, walking in  swimwear is recommended, and lighter e.g. Functional t-shirt. The equipment is  then carried in hands or slung on the back.
  • Before entering the canyon itself, there will be a safety training on how to move in the canyon and a rappelling test
  • Off we go, let’s do it!
  • After passing the canyon we walk back to  the car. Changing clothes and handing over the equipment to the guide. Farewell.
  • The option to shower at the Black Sheeps Adventures base in Wildalpen.
