The Fish River canyon is one of the most impressive natural beauties in the southern part of Namibia. With a depth of up to 550 metres, the Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world. The enormous gorge meanders along a distance of approx. 160 kilometres through the fissured Koubis massif all the way down to Ai-Ais. The canyon starts near Seeheim. It is 161 kilometres long and up to 27 km wide and ends at Ai-Ais. The canyon is over 500 million years old, with part of the strata formed as far back as 650 million years ago. The area has become a very popular hiking destination over the years, which includes the well-known Fish River Hiking Trail. The trail is a 4-day activity covering 86 km in total. Hiking trips are available from May to September
