Rafting in Zillertal Valley

Rafting, Kayak & Canyoning

Group dynamics at its best

Battle your way down the Ziller River on a raft or kayak, or explore the gorges of Mayrhofen-Hippach on a canyoning tour.


An adventure sport which combines experiencing nature, sporty action and team spirit. The only prerequisite for this sport is the ability to swim. You will be introduced to all the other "Rafting Secrets" before the fun begins on the raging rapids!


Canyons and gorges can be found on the outskirts of Mayrhofen, well away from standard walking trails. The only way to get through these is by climbing, swimming or abseiling! The route leading to a safe exit point leads past thundering waterfalls, over gigantic rocks and through crystal clear mountain waters. 


Mayrhofen gained a reputation in European sporting circles as early as the 1950's with the national and international white water championships. The stretch of river from Hochsteg to Gasthof Zillertal is considered to be particularly difficult, providing a real challenge for the canoe elite!
