Canyoning in the Upper Allgäu

If you're looking for adventure, then canyoning in the Starzlach Gorge is just the thing for you! You can abseil, jump into water pools and slide to your heart's content.

Canyoning is sometimes called "gorging", as you abseil down mountain gorges. As well as the attraction of the sport itself, the natural surroundings are also part of the experience. The moments in which you're sliding down a water gorge and diving into rivers are fascinating and simply unforgettable. Xconcepts organise basic tours, which are perfect for beginners. The descent isn't too steep, certain sections can be bypassed with ease, and the Starzlach Gorge is ideal for a mixture of abseiling, jumping and sliding. Your guide, Alex Lenz, brings all of the equipment to the meeting point at the large "Wanderparkplatz" car park. To get there, you can either take bus 20 from Sonsthofen station (bus stop "Sonthofen-Bahnhof" until "Sonthofen Starzlachweg") or walk (takes around an hour).
