SAALACH BEGINNER

 

For your first packrafting experience, we will begin the day at Ritzensee Lake, where you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of the Limestone mountains of Steinernes Meer.

We will take time to familiarize ourselves with the equipment, learn basic paddling techniques, and prepare for the second part of the day, which will be spent on the river Saalach.

 

The Saalach river winds through some of the most stunning landscapes in Austria, offering a variety of sections to explore with a packraft, from easy stretches to some of the most challenging whitewater in the country. We will paddle the section between Saalfelden and Weissbach, an ideal route for a first-time packrafting experience, featuring a mix of gentle rapids and calm sections where you can fully appreciate the surrounding nature.
