Where water has cleaved its way from the mountain down to the valley over time immemorial, its path is reflected in adventurous landscapes, misty and mystical – Tirol’s most beautiful canyons.
Water is stronger than stone: where streams have inexorably forced their way from the mountain down to the valley over centuries, the waters have cleaved through rock and stone, creating ravines and gorges in many places, with rock pools, gullies and waterfalls. Years ago, the power of these canyon streams was often exploited for log driving. Nowadays, Tirol’s gorges and canyons are popular day trip destinations and well accessible via walkways and steps. You will, however, still need to be sure of foot, as the rising spray often makes the paths quite slippery.
It really is worthwhile to stop every so often, just to look and marvel: the views and surprising aspects of these canyons are simply magnificent; nowhere else does nature present itself in such sparkling and mysterious style!
