Water sports in the Salzkammergut
Numerous lakes, streams and rivers will await you in the Dachstein-Salzkammergut region
Numerous crystal-clear lakes, rivers and streams in the Salzkammergut are a real Eldorado for water sportspeople. Go swimming, fishing, bathing, sailing, diving or rowing. Try rafting, take a canoe or plunge through adventurous ravines with canyoning.
Enjoy the lakes of the Salzkammergut
Numerous waters in the Salzkammergut offer you all the possibilities that water sportspeople could wish for. The 76 lakes of the Salzkammergut – admittedly, different counts give different results – do not only invite you to swim.
Every year in the summer, the athletes meet at the river Traun with their small inflatable boat, which even fits in a backpack. The rafting fun in the river between Bad Goisern am Hallstättersee and Lauffen can begin. The Gschwendtner canoe rental company offers packrafting tours in Bad Goisern.
Rowing, sailing and diving
At the big lakes you can usually rent rowing boats, pedal boats, sailing boats and electric boats and therefore get a new perspective on the surroundings or you go under water – the alpine lakes of the Salzkammergut are popular diving locations but should never be underestimated due to their depth.
Kayaking and canoeing
At Lake Hallstatt you can either paddle excitingly or leisurely. Sea kayaks are 5 metres long and therefore have special steering equipment. For beginners, there are courses and instruction on how best to handle the craft, whereas experienced paddle boaters can perfect their basic knowledge. The fast, manoeuvrable boats can be used to explore Lake Hallstatt either guided or independently.
For those who prefer a more leisurely way of exploring the idyllic landscape of the Dachstein-Salzkammergut region on the water, a canoe is recommended. There is room for two to three people and a canoe is considered very stable and tip-proof.
Wild water adventure
Regional providers enable you to go on exciting wild water adventures in the mountain rivers of the region. Take part in guided canyoning or canoe tours, go rafting or try fishing.
Bathing in the Salzkammergut
Nevertheless you should absolutely plan a bathing day while on summer holiday in Bad Goisern. Fantastic bays and shore meadows invite you to enjoy the sun, to relax, to feel nature and take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear water of the lake every now and then. There are beautiful lidos at the big lakes such as the Fuschlsee, Lake Wolfgang, Attersee, Mondsee or Lake Hallstatt. But also the other lakes offer lonely bathing fun. Those who dare can dip into cool mountain lakes which you will surely pass during your hikes.
