Sport & Fun

There is no other place like East Tyrol, where in the summer heat, you can enjoy kayaking and rafting, and where you can continue to drive on wild waves of stream until late autumn.

East Tyrol is a mountain region in the south of the Alps, a very small area with nearly 1000 mountain peaks, crowned by the massive glacier of the Hohe Tauern. The river Isel has its sources here, one of the 30 most impressive glacier streams. It makes its way through Umbal – Virgen valleys to the Matrei. Tauern stream from Venice group and Kalser stream fed by Grossglockner join each other and flow in the direction Lienz, likewise does Schwarzach from Defereggen valley. In the district capital city the river Isel meets with the river Drava, which sources in the southern parts of East Tyrol’s mountain ranges.

Above the all, the river Isel with its white water, is a big temptation for those, who like kayaking and rafting. Each difficulty level is available, from the romantic river walks to the ultimate thrilling white water rafting or kayaking. The river sources in glaciers of National Park Hohe Tauern, whereby has enough water for rafting in summer months – July and August. The Isel, which has drinking water quality, provides different level rafting routes between Lienz and Matrei. The season starts on the 15th of May and ends on the 30th of  September each year. The rafting sport does not depend on weather conditions, which means it is an interesting alternative even in bad weather! www.adrenalin-outdoor.at
