Wild Waters


The “Wild Waters” in the Nationalpark-Region Hohe Tauern are not just breath-takingly beautiful, powerful and inspiring, on its way from the mountain down into the valley, water creates an unparalleled adventure realm for water sports fans. The range of activities available extends from canyoning in gorges and ravines to a canoeing tour on the Drau and everyone will find something to suit them.
