Activity description

Enns River is a mountain river which breaks through the "Gesäusegebirge" like a canyon. It offers whitewater rafting from multiple rapids class II to IV and is suitable for beginners and experienced rafters.

Enns river offers multiple easy sections, which are perfect for kids and family trips.

Between the rafting excursion, you will make a short stop and hike into the beautiful Bruckgraben canyon, where you'll learn interesting facts about nature and the surroundings.
You start the trip shortly after the spectacular "Gesäuse Eingang" rapid. As a warm-up, you will raft through an easy section to start which also allows you to play fun games or take a quick jump into the fresh water on hot summer days.

After a short while, you leave the boat at the banks and start the walk to the beautiful canyon. You climb over little rocks and waterfalls until you reach the tightest spot in the canyon.

After the canyon, you continue your excursion on the river. After crossing Johnsbach bridge, the whitewater gets more exciting, and you will have to paddle through class 3 rapids until the exit at the bridge in Gstatterboden.
