3 Irishmen, a South African and an Australian go Canyoning in the Swiss Alps…not the start to a joke, just my Thursday in Kandersteg. We caught a train to Interlaken to hit the canyons.
Instead of telling you about the adventure…why don’t you watch it?! We went through a canyon called Grimsel, which technically was the advanced canyoning experience…the fact that we were all beginners probably made the 65m abseiling and the 6m jumps off a cliff face into the water along with the 10m + slides and ziplining slightly more terrifying!! We picked helmets before heading into the canyon which were all named.
I picked ‘sexy’ (for obvious reasons of course!)…and then found out the guides were calling us by the helmet names all day…which we decided was not sexual harassment! There were so many helmets to choose from…one of them we found read “Gaddafi”…suprisingly no-one chose to take that one on! The day was fantastic fun; and in the end our tour guides treated us to ice cold Swiss beer and salad sandwiches!!
