Summer vacation water sports: with action guarantee for fun athletes from 12 years

Conquering white water in gorges, riding waves and jumping over your own shadow in the wet element: The Lammer near Abtenau is a varied river that offers all sorts of surprises depending on the water level. Professional, experienced outdoor providers ensure that big and small adventurers safely master all challenges that arise when rafting, tubing, riverbug, canyoning and hydrospeed.

Fun sports in Abtenau: water sports on Lammer and Salzach

  • Rafting on the Lammer or, if the water level is low, on the Salzach is a great adventure for teens from 14 (from 12 accompanied by an adult). With an experienced tour guide you can conquer calm and challenging passages up to real rapids. A rafting tour in Abtenau lasts 3-4 hours, the best months are May and June, and also throughout the summer after rainfall.
  • The  riverbug (from New Zealand) is not only a lot of fun, but is an extremely capable whitewater device: manoeuvrable, versatile and masters pretty much everything that you can kayak. The river bug is easy to learn and forgives even small mistakes.
  • Tubing: a great alternative to rafting when the water level is low. In inflatable tubes, kids from 12 (from 10 accompanied by an adult) and adults can go for 3-4 hours in the company of a guide through foaming and still water.
  • At the hydrospeed you are on the pulse of the river! On the Hydrospeed, the sports version of the good old swimming board, you can go down the river up close on the surface of the water. For all adrenaline addicts from 14 (from 12 accompanied by an adult), the best months May and June as well as after rainfall throughout the summer, duration 3-4 hours.
