If you want to explore Salzburg's most beautiful places from a very unique perspective, this relaxed rafting tour is just right for you! Our trip along the Salzach river takes you from the fascinating nature past the suburbs to the historical centre of the City of Mozart. It's the perfect opportunity to explore Salzburg away from the crowds with plenty of fun included!

Tour programme
We meet at the booked start time at the hydropower station Urstein, where you will receive your equipment and be given a comprehensive briefing by your rafting guide. After practicing the right paddling technique together, our tour starts along the quiet section of the Salzach river. Our trip takes approx. 1h15min and leads us from the hydropower station to the heart of the city of Salzburg. We finish at Pioniersteg, where our bus will already be waiting for you with your personal belongings. We will provide you with terry cloth ponchos so that you can change your wet clothes smoothly. Our exit point right in the centre of Salzburg offers you the perfect opportunity to continue exploring the city by foot.
