The Salza River and its valley – a natural treasure

Whitewater Happiness

As the emerald waters of the Salza River cleave through the Steirische Eisenwurzen Nature Park, there is no better way to unravel its character than by getting up close and personal to it in a kayak, a raft or by simply taking a refreshing splash in the conglomerate ravine.

When the whitewater is calling, we pack up our paddles and set out to a natural treasure right in the heart of Austria. The turquoise waters will make you feel as though you were in the Caribbean, but as soon as you get in the water you will very quickly remember that you are still in the Alps! So, have a look what our water sports providers offer and start your Salza adventure!

In the very heart of nature

The activities that the Nature Park and the National Park offer always make outdoor sports enthusiasts prick up their ears. Clearly, an oasis such as this one is hard to find in Europe. The best way to discover the river is to get into one of the colourful rafts as soon as spring arrives, because the snowmelt makes the rivers rise and the water flow faster. Soon, all you will be able to shout is ‘yay!’ as you go floating down the magical conglomerate ravine.

Between Wildalpen and the ‘Paradise Ravine’

Palfau and Wildalpen are both know as whitewater eldorados – something that we can only confirm. There’s just no better place to paddle! And if you do what the rafting guide tells you there’s just no way you’ll miss out on the fun. Open your eyes, grab that paddle and off you go!

Stories about Wood.

Großreifling and its Silvanum. What exactly is that, you might ask? It’s an old granary, which was turned into the Austrian Forest Museum in 1979. There’s so much to learn about wood and its industry! At the end of the tour you can just sit down in the 3D cinema and be carried away into nature. Hungry already? Why not have a coffee and try ‘Brennsterz’, a traditional Austrian dish? Just like a real lumberjack!

Old and Young.

Von Gstatterboden oder vom Erbsattel geht es durch viel Wald, Wiesen, Weiden vorbei an Schmetterlingen, Kühen und kleineren Blumenmeeren hinauf auf die Ennstalerhütte. Dort wartet eine Stärkung mit Ausblick, bevor dann der Tamischbachturm unsicher gemacht wird. Mit Liebe zum Detail und bequemen Liegestühlen atmet man hier Abenteuerluft. Und auf einmal lebt man dann nur mehr im Moment. Wunderbar!
