You basically need no equipment and no experience to have an amazing time canyoning with outdoor Interlaken. We had the best time climbing, repelling, jumping and floating. We also went behind some waterfalls. Would definitely do it again!

Great experience! Recommend it! It’s fun and the Guides are awesome!
