River adventures

Rafting & canyoning & rivertubing

The Gail river combines rushing wildwater with more gentle sections popular with fly fishing enthusiasts and walkers.

Rafting, canyoning, riverboogie and kayaking are just some of the water-based sports that are available in the region.


A rafting tour lasts 1.5 to 2 hours and is an unforgettable experience for all the family. Children aged 4 years and older can take part in rafting trips under the watchful eye of trained guides. May and June are the best months for rafting on the Gail river.

Schluchting/ Canyoning

Trained and experienced guides will give you safety tips and lead you through the heart of the mountain.

Canyoning is the best way to experience the power of water at first hand. Equipped with a wetsuit, helmet and climbing harness, visitors jump, slide and abseil their way down through the rocks and water in the company of a fully qualified guide.
