Austria, Switzerland & Bavaria

A great mix of bouncy big volume white water and clear-water low volume scenic canyons; Austria, Switzerland and Bavaria have something to offer all abilities and styles of paddler…

Based out of the Landeck area of Austria, we’ll be able to take in the best of southern Bavaria, eastern Switzerland and of course Austria! Rivers we’re likely to do include many sections of the Inn (Imst Gorge, Gairsun Gorge, Schuls, Susch, Landeck Gorge, Tosens and more!), Rissbach, Ammer, Brandenburger, Lower Oetz, Sanna… it’ll depend a little on river levels and the group. It’s often possible to do two or three sections in a day if you’re keen and organised: or do one or two and take it easy…

Technical Fun  Lunch at the put-in

Throughout the week with us you will be provided with outstanding coaching and guiding by some the industry’s best coaches. With a maximum ratio of 1:4, you will get plenty of feedback and attention while also keeping safety as a top priority. For more information about our expert coaches, see the ‘About Us‘ page.

A rapid in Bavaria

We are committed to making your trip as relaxed and enjoyable as possible, from before you’ve even left home. We offer airport pick-up or can co-ordinate shared car-travel from the UK.

We have some lovely apartments where all meals are provided, so once you’re off the river you are free to relax and explore the area.

All smiles kayaking in Austria

At the end of the week, we will have a debrief with an opportunity for you to get detailed feedback on you paddling and an action plan to take forward. All photos and videos taken by us throughout the week will be shared at the end of the trip; and if there is sufficient interest we will edit a full trip DVD for purchase. Below is a little video from one of our trips back in 2012.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?! Well, don’t just take our word for it…

“I had a great time in Austria. Couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to Alpine white water. Massive volume blue rivers, stunning backdrop of piercing jagged mountains and the week of wall to wall blue sunshine and hot weather was just the icing on the cake! Expert guiding from Lowri and Andy all week left us feeling very safe and happy to tackle much harder runs than I would have thought I could do both locally in Landeck with the Sanna and Imst and further afield into Switzerland and Germany. The accommodation in Landeck was superb and the people very friendly. I haven’t experienced many other paddling destinations but Austria blew me away! Wouldn’t hesitate to go again.”
