Often referred to as Little Canada of Austria, the Schwarza River in Hell’s Canyon (Höllental) hosts an exciting interplay of great whitewater up to WW III as well as mellow sections to recreate and enjoy the surrounding nature. 

Depending on your previous experience on the river, we will canoe either rather timid sections of the Schwarza or its more challenging waters. In any case you will have a chance to jump into clear freshwater pools from rocks and also get to relax and swim during your float. Guide Georg will also gladly tell you about the history of the canyon and its use to transport logs in the past during your trip if you’re interested. Adventure-feel guaranteed.

PLEASE NOTE: We work ecologically responsible and in cooperation with local fly-fishers. That means if the Schwarza’s water level is too low to go through with boats without damaging the ecosystem on your booked date, we’ll do the Upper Salza canoe tour instead.

The Schwarza is also part of our big five best canoeing rivers – if you want to do all of them in one go, click here.

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

Available for all levels of experience:
Beginners to Advanced
