What To Expect

Experience the thrills and spills of the Swiss Alps on this 5.5-hour canyoning adventure. Depart from either of Interlaken's train stations, or from your accommodation in Interlaken or one of seven local municipalities. Meet your guide at the canyoning base, where you’ll receive your safety gear, including a wetsuit to protect you from the chilly mountain water. 

The 1-hour scenic drive out to the canyon follows the impressive peaks of the Bernese Alps through Grimsel Pass. Listen as your guide gives a run-down of your day’s activities. On arrival, snap on your helmet, harness and life jacket, followed by a safety briefing. 

Then put your skills to the test as you go abseiling (rappelling) down a 165-foot (50-meter) cliff face into the canyon and plunge into the water. Your wet and wild journey includes roughly 2.5 hours of fun — leaping off rocky ledges from up to 26 feet (8 meters) above and sliding down natural chutes into swirling plunge pools.

Your guide will show the way and ensure your safety, and even take you along easier routes if you're not feeling quite so adventurous. Zoom down a high zipline into crystal-clear waters below and float effortlessly downstream. 

Replenish with a light lunch of bread, cheese, cucumber and tomatoes and a refreshing drink of beer or water. Afterward, hop back aboard your vehicle for the return to the base, where you can enjoy a shower and purchase a copy of your filmed trip through the canyons. 

Afterward, you’re dropped off at your Interlaken-area hotel or train station, where your morning or afternoon canyoning tour concludes.

Please note: There is no exit for people who want to stop during the trip once inside the canyon.

The overall experience was great! Despite being rookies at canyoning, our guides Iain and (forgive me for forgetting our other guides name) we’re very helpful in giving us the rundown needed for a successful trip. I would highly recommend canyoning with Outdoor!

The 50 meter rappel was...
Amanda_K, Sept 2023
The 50 meter rappel was amazing! And loved the zip line. Would definitely recommend this canyoning experience!
Brilliant day out, so glad we booked
Andy_C, Aug 2023
Each waterfall was a different jump/slide/abseil. It was such a fun day out. I'd recommend it to anyone, plus as a tourist staying in interlaken you can get 10% off
Best experience of our week!
Tamara_D, Aug 2023
We had never been canyoning before. Our guide, Sebastian was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone in our group knew what to do at all times. He made this experience very enjoyable and something we will definitely try again. He also had a guide with him and was teaching him different things to watch for and asking him questions to make sure he knew. It was obvious Sebastian is very passionate about his job and wants to make it a fun and great experience for everyone.

This ended up being my favorite part of a 2-week vacation in the Alps. Canyoneering was so much fun, so adventurous and unique. It was a really fun activity, the guides were excellent, and I really enjoyed the other travelers in my group! It was an amazing day and I wouldn’t hesitate to book it again.
Absolutely do it, so much...

A decent time
Nicholas_B, Aug 2022
A satisfactory experience. Rappelling and zip lining was fun and the setting was gorgeous. Most of the actual canyoning was spent waiting for people to get through obstacles though so we didn't end up traveling very far. On other canyoning trips I've been on, they had more staff working with people to get them through sections of the canyon so you never had to stop and wait for the whole group to get through.
Great way to explore the beauty of Switzerland
Austin_F, July 2022
Guide was great - Tim from New Zealand was a lot of fun and professional. The canyoning takes about 1.5 hours, the van ride to the canyon about an hour and then an hour for lunch so you’re looking at about a 5 hour excursion. I wish I had done the full day canyoning which they said is about 3.5 hours.
Canyon adventure
Heidi_D, July 2022
My son and I had an amazing time it was quite magical to have such a great adventure in such a beautiful place. It was thrilling but very safe and the guides did an excellent job of giving each person what they needed. I personally needed a little extra help walking across the rocks. If you are ready for a wonderful and thrilling adventure you are in good hands.
Great experience
Justin_R, July 2022
Our tour guides were great and the experience as a whole was amazing! Canyoning was exhilarating and our tour guides were there every step of the way making sure we were safe.
Awesome experience!
Estelle_O, June 2022
My sister and I went canyoning for the first time and absolutely loved it! The experience was exciting and definitely worth it. The guides we had were great and very clear about instructions. I would recommend this experience to anyone who’s interested.

Safe and fun - Anna and Konstantine were great for me and my 4 teenage daughters. Tons of fun. First time we did canyoneering - total fun and would do it again.
Response from Host, June 2022
Thanks for leaving a review, glad you had fun and hope to see you again on another Canyoning tour :-)
Family adventure
Cecily_R, June 2022
Our family of 4 wasn't entirely sure what to expect . We knew this was an intermediate level adventure and we wanted to get right in the middle of it. Well, it did not disappoint! We started with a repel and went down the canyon through the river. It was cold, but we were well-outfitted by our guides and stayed warm enough and moved quickly between jumps and repels that it was fine. By the time we got back to the base, we were tired and welcomed the sandwich and beer waiting. Our kids (ages 18 and 18) loved it. My husband and I did too but realized we aren't as young as we once were. We are so happy we did it and our guides were wonderful and kept us safe.
Don't miss booking this adventure.
Maria_L, Sept 2021
Hudson, Owen and Konstantine were outstanding. They provided the right amount of safety and instruction with a good bit of humor and entertainment. Highly recommend.

If you're up for an adventure, do this tour! I'm someone who has never done a lot outdoors, but has always wanted to, and this tour was amazing! It is a little physical demanding, but I would say the average Joe could do it. From repelling down 50 ft to jumping off of rocks to zip lining, it was an adventure to the very end. If going to Interlaken, I would recommend doing some activity from Outdoor Interlaken, as this city in Switzerland is famous for its adventurous outdoor activities in the summer. So if you don't do this, do kayaking, rafting, or paragliding. All fun experiences. However, I do think that this one is the best because it's 5.5 hours long experience rather than 30 minutes paragliding in the air. In my opinion, it's more worth the money. Also, they gave us fresh sandwiches and a beer after the tour, and we got to eat it while looking at the most beautiful mountain views! :

Do this! We had a blast! The guide was great and really made our experience great! You will be cold but they give you wetsuits and everything you need. Bring your go pro if you have one with a strap to document the adventure.
