For the end of the summer semester, there will be something extreme for those who like adrenalin and a water adventure. Together with the travel agency CoolCamp we have prepared a 2-day rafting trip on the Salza River. The Salza River is a popular glacial river located in Austria. Its beautiful rapids are suitable for the first contact with wild water.
The two-day program will first lead you through the upper sections of the Salza River (difficulty WW II), which is ideal for learning how to paddle. The lower section (difficulty WW III) will examine what you have learned and will offer you the beautiful nature and ride in the gorges. Rapids alternate with calm (pool). If the crew overturns, the water is nowhere furious. This makes Salza the ideal place for your first wild water.
