Wildwasserfluss Gesäuse

Water sports

Wild whitewater

Grit your teeth and go for it!

Wanna paddle through the emerald-green waters of one of the last natural rivers in Europe? Or do you prefer to get your dose of adrenalin through canyoning? Do you want to experience the roaring and whizzing Enns river up close? In the Gesäuse (the name refers to the roaring Enns river) those who prefer the water to the mountains will definitely get their money’s worth when rafting, kayaking or canoeing.

If you want to enjoy the water you should get up early. Is there anything better than jumping into the refreshing water in the morning? After doing so you will definitely be wide awake – no coffee needed, take our word for it. The water of the Salza River is of crystal-clear drinking water quality, so you can swim and drink at the same time!

Grinning happily.

 

Once you overcome the first cold shock you won’t be able to wipe that grin off your face! In these moments you are entirely surrounded by nature – there are no houses to be seen, only grey rock faces and the river’s vegetation. When rafting, everybody sits in the same rubber boat and together you glide down the roaring whitewater, the left side and the right side taking turns to paddle. In the meantime you can listen to the stories and anecdotes of the certified rafting guide, who also happens to know the best places for taking a dip from great heights. In this case the pencil jump might be the best position, but you can also opt for a belly-flop. And those who still look elegant while wearing a thick, black wetsuit, a life jacket and a helmet definitely deserve some ice cream afterwards.

A river with personality.

Depending on whether you come to the Gesäuse in spring, summer or autumn, you will get to see the river’s different personalities – every season has its own unique charm. We definitely recommend a visit in summer when the water is emerald-green and the beautiful beaches at the banks of the Salza River glisten in the sunshine. While rafting down the river you can pick out your spot for taking a swim and enjoying the summer atmosphere. One of the best spots is the one at Wasserlochklamm Gorge with its spectacular views. If the whitewater in summer is not wild enough you should be sure to visit in spring when the meltwater from the mountains comes rushing down and makes the river rise.

Happy paddling!

Should you choose the river Enns for your rafting trip you will find out first-hand why the Gesäuse bears its name. Every metre of this river has to be earned – you will paddle by the steep rock faces, which can be more than 1800 m high, and through the National Park. Pure joy is what the kayakers and canoeists experience while whooshing through the water like red, green and yellow Smarties. In the Gesäuse you will learn from real professionals that can show you everything – from the first paddle strokes to the kayak roll.

Kajak

Many colourful kayakers glide down the waters of the Gesäuse and have the time of their lives. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow, they make their way past bays of the finest sands and rock formations made of impressive limestone and conglomerate.

Canyoning

Those who have tried canyoning say it is addictive. Put on that lovely wet suit and start jumping from stone to stone and down the waterfall - vertigo is a thing of the past!

A bubbly experience.

The Gesäuse and its roaring and whizzling whitewater. And right in the middle of it all: you.
