Salzburg: 4-hour White Water Rafting on the Salzach River

1. Salzburg: 4-hour White Water Rafting on the Salzach River

Join this rafting tour and head to the Salzach River. Provided the water level is high enough, you'll experience white water rafting of moderate difficulty. From the meeting point, you'll transfer to the start of the river. After you begin, there's a short section of the river that will give you time to familiarise yourself with the character of the river and the onboard commands. You'll soon be at the 'Labyrinth', a blocked rapids section that will demand focused attention. Make your way through the Railway rapids section, after which point the river continues through Lend. From the impressive waterfall of the Gasteiner Ache, things slow down a bit. Shortly before the finish, there are some splashy sections where staying dry will not be an option. After, you'll head back to the meeting point.

Salzburg: Canyoning and Rafting Experience with Lunch

3. Salzburg: Canyoning and Rafting Experience with Lunch

Pack 2 exciting activities into a single day of fun. Explore the stunning Almbach canyon, jumping or abseiling down sheer rock faces and swimming in the fresh waters below. Break for lunch before setting out on the next leg of your adventure, a rafting experience on the Salzach River. Meet your guide at Basecamp Golling to collect your gear and make your way to the starting point, where a day of outdoor fun awaits. First up, a canyoning experience in the Almbach gorge.  Before you set out to explore the canyon, your guide will take you through a full safety briefing. Spend the morning discovering one of the most beautiful and varied gorges in the Salzburg area and learn canyoning techniques from your licensed guide as you traverse breathtaking landscapes. Jump from heights of between 1.5 and 8 meters, zoom down natural slides and swim in the cool canyon waters. And if you're feeling a little uncertain about jumping, you can choose to abseil down the rock face assisted by your experienced guide. Having worked up an appetite, you'll head back to the Torrenerhof Hotel for some traditional Austrian food. Savor a delicious schnitzel or enjoy Kasnockerln (cheese dumplings) for the vegetarian option. After lunch, head to the Salzach River to begin your rafting adventure. Hop into your raft and start drifting down the river, taking this time to familiarize yourself with the onboard commands and the nature of the water. Stay focused as you approach the 'Labyrinth', a blocked rapids section that will demand all your attention. Take a short break from the action as you reach the impressive waterfall of the Gasteiner Ache, where things slow down a bit.  Then, just before your rafting tour comes to an end, make the most of some splashier parts of the river – staying dry will not be an option. End your day with a convenient transfer back to Camp Golling, where you can take advantage of the shower facilities to clean up before heading back to your accommodation.
