Sigmund Thun Gorge Kaprun

An unique nature experience

It was many years ago. More precisely, 14,000 years ago, in the late Ice Age. A glacier covered the entire Kaprun valley and slowly but steadily chewed its way through the rocks of the Mais- and Bürgkogel. The melted glacier naturally left behind a valley cleft through which the Kapruner Ache made its way.

The river has buried itself up to 32 metres deep over a length of 320 metres. Visitors can experience this place today and imagine how glaciers and the river shaped and moulded this landscape over the millennia. Wooden walkways and numerous bridges make this extraordinary expedition easier. Narrow rock walls, roaring white water and much more are included in this nature experience.

Definitely worth a trip!
