    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.

    Our trip was awesome! The girls helping us get signed up in the shop were very friendly. Miro & Flurin were great guides, they explained everything to us in detail before we just jumped in-several of us on the trip were first timers at canyoning. They always made sure everyone

    The Grimsel canyoning experience was our favorite part of our stay in Switzerland. Our guides Anna and Miro were absolutely amazing - both friendly and helpful. It was our first time canyoning, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. The route had lots of jumps and rappelling,

    My wife and I enjoyed an amazing experience Canyoning through the Grimsel Canyon. It was a cold but sunny day after some snow, so we were thinking we would be quite cold but it wasn't too bad (just keep your hands out of the water when you can). This want too intense for me but
