Rafting Salza

Rafting in river Salza - Sunday 13th June

Let's go rafting! Enjoy a day of pure nature adventure and fun. The ideal trip for our outdor sports lovers!


We have a new trip for you: Rafting at the river Salza (in upper Styria). Everyone who is a bit sportive can take part. You don't need any special equipment (you get everything there) - you only need to bring swimming wear and a towel. You MUST be able to SWIM in any water (bath-tub and pool do not count. If you are afraid to swim in the sea or in a lake this trip is not for you ;-)

We start early in the morning. Overall the rafting will take about 4-5 hours (with instructions, getting dressed, rafting...and drying up at the end). Depending on the water level we will stop to jump from an abondend bridge. The white water rating for the river Salza is rated I to II and some spots III  (for reference: the rating scale goes till V). So it is still suitable for beginners. The river is very beautiful with its clear water in the slow parts. Of course the more water the more fun it is. Unfortunately we can not guarantee a high water level (you may do a little rain dance the days before the trip but leave some sun for the trip day ;-)

Depening on the weather there are a few possibilites after the rafting for the rest of the day. We might just chill out (actually warm up :-), do a barbeque or can go for a hike...we will discuss this with the participants shortly before the trip.

The rafting itself is provided through a local company and their expierenced rafting guides.


What you need:

Swimming cloths


This trip is a little bit more demanding than a simple hike. So you have to met the following basic rules:

  • You must be able to swim.
  • You should be a bit sportive and are not afraid of water.
  • On the trip day you MUST BE SOBER! Any participant showing up in the morning drunk (hang over) will be left in Graz and does not get any money back!
  • Fast reactions are helpfull so get enough sleep the night before. If we have the feeling that you are not fit enough we leave you in Graz (no money back).
  • You have to follow the instructions given by the guides. If you do not follow the orders or bring the group in danger you will be excluded from rafting on the spot.
  • You must either speak German or English well to understand the instructions of the guides right away.
  • It is strongly recommended that you have an issurance covering sport accidents.
