Full description

Pack 2 exciting activities into a single day of fun. Explore the stunning Almbach canyon, jumping or abseiling down sheer rock faces and swimming in the fresh waters below. Break for lunch before setting out on the next leg of your adventure, a rafting experience on the Salzach River.

 

Meet your guide at Basecamp Golling to collect your gear and make your way to the starting point, where a day of outdoor fun awaits. First up, a canyoning experience in the Almbach gorge.

 

Before you set out to explore the canyon, your guide will take you through a full safety briefing. Spend the morning discovering one of the most beautiful and varied gorges in the Salzburg area and learn canyoning techniques from your licensed guide as you traverse breathtaking landscapes.

 

Jump from heights of between 1.5 and 8 meters, zoom down natural slides and swim in the cool canyon waters. And if you're feeling a little uncertain about jumping, you can choose to abseil down the rock face assisted by your experienced guide.

 

Having worked up an appetite, you'll head back to the Torrenerhof Hotel for some traditional Austrian food. Savor a delicious schnitzel or enjoy Kasnockerln (cheese dumplings) for the vegetarian option.

 

After lunch, head to the Salzach River to begin your rafting adventure. Hop into your raft and start drifting down the river, taking this time to familiarize yourself with the onboard commands and the nature of the water.

 

Stay focused as you approach the 'Labyrinth', a blocked rapids section that will demand all your attention. Take a short break from the action as you reach the impressive waterfall of the Gasteiner Ache, where things slow down a bit.

 

Then, just before your rafting tour comes to an end, make the most of some splashier parts of the river – staying dry will not be an option.

 

End your day with a convenient transfer back to Camp Golling, where you can take advantage of the shower facilities to clean up before heading back to your accommodation.

We were surprised by having to drive 3 hours in the car for this event! We had to drive to the location for both the canyoning and the rafting! That is not mentioned on the site. We handy to mention. This for the right expectations! Also the promised pictures of the rafting which we could download unfortunately did not happen. Also super nice to cool guides. We had Alex and Luke. Thanks guys!
