The lure of white water
Speedy rapids and bubbling rollers - there's hardly time left for a glimpse of the idyllic landscape that passes by the river's left and right. For sure the adventure-seeking have an advantage while the immense power of the waves tosses the boat around and the water spray in your face has a quite refreshing effect. The Ötztal is considered Europe's number one center for whitewater athletes. The "Imster Schlucht" ravine ranks among the most frequented river sections on the continent and is just perfect also for beginners. On the Ötztaler Ache mountain brook experienced rafting fans will find crisp white water sections that are technically challenging.
The wild ride into the wet element starts side by side with experienced guides. There are different programs for beginners and professionals as well as quieter tours for children from six or seven years. The only thing you should bring with you is your swimwear and the ability to swim. The equipment including wetsuit and boots, whitewater helmet and life jacket are provided by Ötztal's outdoor companies. Severe quality standards of all regional outdoor professionals and the safety of all participants are a top priority. All tours are accompanied by certified guides without exception - including safety instruction and detailed introduction. In dangerous or risky weather conditions the tour will not take place or an alternative tour is offered. At the end of each tour, taxis take you back to the starting point in a comfortable way.
