Kayak, canoe, rafting in the Salzkammergut
Summer on Lake Mondsee
Alone out on the lake: if you go on Lake Mondsee by kayak or canoe you will get to see so much more of the lake, from the unspoilt lakesides to the smooth and peaceful water surface – places you might otherwise miss out on.
Rowing boats at lake Mondsee
Rowing boats, sailing boats, shipping, … Lake Mondsee can be explored in so many ways. The most intimate is probably by kayak or canoe. Only a couple of centimetres above the water surface, with total control over pace and nothing or no one around you, if you fancy being alone for a bit.
Kayak – Mondsee Sailing School
At the Mondsee Sailing School right in the town of Mondsee you will not only learn how to sail. Here you can choose between various courses or private lessons; day or week courses and will also be able to borrow boats. How about stand-up paddling; stand on a surfboard-like board and paddle while you are standing. Try kayaking; the difference to other sports is the double-paddle. Before kayaking for the first time you should consult an instructor at least once. He or she will show you tricks and the easiest way to paddle through water. this water-sport is pretty easy and with a bit of practise anyone can do it.
Rafting on Lake Mondsee
If you fancy a wilder adventure and prefer whitewater to Lake Mondsee, then you should definitely give rafting a try. At the end of Lake Hallstatt you will find the perfect conditions. The River Traun runs quite wildly from Steeg to Lauffen and the 10km long segment is more than great for rafting. Rafting tours are available throughout the summer. Tours are offered for groups of 6 or more. You can also book a single or double ticket – we will find the right group for you. But you should not be afraid of water.
