Adventure Vacations in Lienz

Canyoning in Eastern Tyrol

Where you find the highest mountains, you'll also discover the deepest and most exciting valleys. Which makes Hohe Tauern National Park and the surrounding canyons perfect for action-packed tours.

To put it simply, "canyoning" simply means making your way from one end of a canyon to the other. Whilst paved paths lead the way elsewhere, canyoning involves rappelling, jumping, mountaineering, swimming... It is an adventure that will lead you to uninhabited spots and unique nature. If you are already experienced in canyoning, you will find a little piece of heaven in Eastern Tyrol. If you would like to try out this activity for the first time, easy guided tours are available. The necessary equipment is supplied by many guides. Otherwise, you will find what you need in the sports stores in Lienz.

Get ready for a vacation adventure as you go rafting and canyoning in Eastern Tyrol. And no matter how wet you get during the day: awaiting you in the evening are your comfortable accommodations in the center of Lienz.
