As you gaze down into the depths of a canyon, the power of nature becomes all too apparent. Carved out over millennia, gorges serve as a solid reminder of just how long Mother Nature has been at work — and just how much longer she’ll continue to do so. That’s why we love these places. That’s why every explorer’s heart beats a little faster when hiking or riding through these wrinkles on the world. That’s why you want to add one to your next adventure in the outdoors! To help you do so, we’ve organized our full collection of gorges, canyon and ravine Highlights for you. Contributed by other members of the komoot community, these personal recommendations are insider tips you know can trust — and they come packed full of helpful photos, tips and suggested routes so you can add these places to your next adventure at the click of a button.
