Schwarza, Traisen, Mürz, Salza and Ybbs are our eastern alps big five. On this five day river adventure, we’ll do excursions to the eastern Limestone Alps’ best canoeable alpine rivers. This expedition will initiate, immerse and make you fall in love with whitewater canoeing and kayaking like no other. You’ll be on the river for five consecutive days, experiencing breathtaking nature, exhilarating rapids, clearwater refreshment, rock jumping action and the combined beauty of it all when reminiscing about your daily accomplishments at the campfire in the evenings. Pick up your paddle and join on this adventure of a lifetime!

Day 1 will start in Nasswald where you’ll be prepped for the days ahead and will take your first tour on the Schwarza, a river canyon tour that has it all, rock jumps, whitewater swimming and fun rapids.

Day 2 we’ll head out to Traisen where we can put the skills acquired on day 1 to the test, also going down so serious mini-waterfalls.

Day 3 we’ll take on the Mürz, a pristine and beautiful river with lots of pools to swim in.

Day 4, the Salza will provide cream of the crop whitewater canoeing with unmet natural bounty surrounding us during the whole trip.

On the five the Ybbs will be the closing river of our expedition, with a balanced interplay of rapids and relaxing calm sections with wide views.

We’ll meet for this big five river adventure on the night before the first day at the train station at Payerbach/Reichenau or directly in Nasswald (if you travel by car), where you can either camp in our yard for free or take a room at the RAXKING “Wirtshaus zum Raxkönig”. During the week we’ll make camp around Austria in tents – you can bring your own or rent one from us. Fees for external camping sites and food are not included in the price. After completion of last day, we can drop you off at the train station in Ybbs an der Donau or St. Pölten, which we’ll pass on the way back to Nasswald.

PLEASE NOTE: We work ecologically responsible and in cooperation with local fly-fishers. That means if the water levels of the Schwarza, Mürz or Traisen are too low to go through with boats without damaging the ecosystem, we’ll canoe sections of the Mur, Enns, Traun, Steyr or Teichl instead.

If you’d like to just go down on one of the big five you can book them individually here.

Life jackets, helmets, wetsuits and river boots are included.
