Thrills, fun and a great nature experience - welcome to beginner canyoning in Bavaria, near Lenggries! On this varied canyoning tour you will hike through a gorge along the course of the river.

Waterfalls, pools, slides and an impressive landscape await you. We meet for a welcome by our guides at Sport-Piraten Camp, where everyone receives their equipment.

After the transfer to the entry point and a safety briefing, you descend into the gorge and your canyoning beginner adventure can begin.

You jump into crystal-clear water pools, slide down natural slides, climb over rocks and trees or abseil and jump from heights of up to seven metres.

Don't worry, difficult parts can of course be avoided or abseiled. Everyone only does what they really dare to do. And if not on this day, then maybe the next time.

Sport-Piraten Camp, Isarstraße 2, 83661 Lenggries


Canyoning (also Schluchteln) is walking through a canyon from top to bottom in different variations. Through passive or active rappelling, jumping, sliding and swimming, you get through the gorges with neoprene, helmet and special harness. Canyoning originated in Spain and southern France in the late 1990s. In the U.S., canyoning is better known as canyoneering.
Every weekend, many people from the major Bavarian cities of Munich, Augsburg and Nuremberg are drawn to the foothills of the Alps to pursue their passion, outdoor sports. Bavaria's extensive border region with Austria offers numerous gorges for every demand and taste of a canyoning lover.

Beginner Canyoning Bavaria is an unforgettable adventure! However, it can be dangerous if you are not properly prepared. With our professional equipment (neoprene suit 7mm, hip belt, helmet, neoprene socks) as well as under the expert guidance of our canyon guides, the beginner canyoning Bavaria for beginners is, however, a safe and at the same time exciting outdoor adventure that all participants* will remember for a long time!

Sure! Please contact us and we will take care of your non-binding reservation until 2 weeks before the date. 

Approximately 90-95% of the tours take place as planned.

Gorges are undoubtedly among the most beautiful landscapes in the world!
However, they also have their disadvantages: due to the fact that they have partially narrow places, the safety in the gorge is very dependent on the water level and its influencing factors. The amount of precipitation, melt water, weir openings, etc...

Safety has absolute priority. Sometimes it is only possible to predict on very short notice (1 to 2 days) before the tour whether the circumstances are suitable for the tour. As soon as we are sure if the tour can take place (or not), we will let you know! 

No, the tickets and vouchers remain valid. In case of cancellation an alternative date will be arranged.

Yes! As long as you book under the same name, you will be assigned to the same group.

For bookings with different names, feel free to let us know.

There is a maximum of 10 guests per guide.
If we have several groups for the same time, the guides decide on the spot whether the groups go together or separately.

The minimum number of participants is 4 guests.

Provided by us:

  • 7-mm wetsuit
  • Climbing harness with self-belay.
  • Helmet
  • Neoprene socks

What do I need to bring ?

  • Swimsuit or trunks or bikini
  • Towel
  • 2 pairs of shoes: 1 pair of sturdy shoes for the tour, preferably ankle-high, which may get wet (e.g. hiking boots) and 1 pair of shoes for afterwards.
  • optional: functional shirt for under the neoprene (no cotton)

(We have only a limited number of shoes for rent)

The meeting point is our camp in Lenggries. There you will be greeted and given the equipment.
The start of the Canyoning Bavaria Tour is in Austria and can be reached in 20 minutes by car.
This trip still has to be done with your own car.

If you are travelling by public transport, please let us know in good time before the tour so that we can organise a lift or taxi for you at your own expense.

Standard swimming skills are a prerequisite for participation in this activity.
The tour is otherwise suitable for absolute beginners 😉

Those who are afraid of heights, but want to fight their fear with a calm head, are welcome to join this tour.
Those who are afraid of heights and can't control themselves with panic should rather not participate.

All places above 1.5m height can either be bypassed or abseiled.

After the experience in the gorge, we drive back to our camp together. There the material is washed and sorted.

2 cold water showers are available.

Everything is locked up in our own car or in our camp.

Yes, in Lenggries there are rustic and hearty inns, beer gardens and restaurants. When the weather is nice, the within walking distance Village tavern highly recommended.
In addition, you are welcome to enjoy a cold beer with us at the camp. 🍺

    Cool, responsible guide who responds to each individual participant and gives the opportunity to try out many different jumps with incredible fun. Who seems too brave, but can also bypass the difficult passages for him and adapted to his ability, have as much fun as the rest of the group.
    Thanks for the great day.
    Shuttle would still be nice, but does not diminish the fun.
    The sport pirates are absolutely recommendable. We have also done a bachelorette party with rafting there and also experienced a cool, mega fun guide who made every fun possible within the scope of his responsibility and safety.
    We will be back!!!

    Canjoning- the beginners tour:
    The Sportpriaten are a great team of super nice coaches who respond to everyone individually and support everyone to overcome their hurdles. Many jumps from different heights, as a candle, ass bonbe or with a somersault - just super evening adventurous! Orga and equipment flawless, would be pleased evtl about a shuttle service, so that you can also arrive by train. Likewise, for the sake of the environment, I would be happy if you collect together on the tour a bit of garbage, which definitely does not belong in these beautiful gorges. TILL SOON !

    A super great tour that you should not miss in any case. Definitely in need of repetition. Great guide. Ei fach auper.
    Great, it would also be if there is an organized shuttle of sports pirates, so that you could also reach public transport well.
    In addition, it would be super awesome if it is ensured that the garbage in the gorge is removed, gladly also share with the groups that everyone takes two parts, so that it immediately looks much cleaner.
    But all in all a super cool tour.
    A super fun over the tour.
