Rafting, canyoning and kayaking

Active water experiences

Rafting in SchladmingRafting
A call to all water babies, young and old: in the region by the Enns, the many brooks, small waterfalls, channels and mountain lakes will entice you to adventures of the refreshingly splashing kind. . . bring a little energy with you and increase the fun factor tremendously! In the interests of individual safety, tours should only be undertaken with professional guides. Only they have the necessary qualifications, are familiar with the local terrain and can provide the necessary equipment.

Paddle along the Enns or Salza river in a rubber dinghy and see the landscape from a completely different perspective - this is rafting, a mini adventure for groups or families (Attention: age restrictions apply to children!). Keinprecht Hotels will make the necessary enquiries if you are interested. 

This activity involves participants hiking through streams, abseiling in small to mediumsized waterfalls, sliding through water ravines and jumping in rock pools. Canyoning requires surefootedness as well as a little strength and endurance. But be careful: only go on tours under the guidance of qualified guides. They will also provide the necessary equipment. 

A local provider organises courses for beginner, advanced and experienced kayakers. People who want to have a taster of this sport can do so at the Aich Lake Resort (between Schladming and Gröbming). Children with a Sommercard can try it out once a week free of charge.

Climbing & via ferrata

Extreme mountain experience

via ferratas
In the high alpine terrain of the region you almost reach the 3000 metre mark. However, prospective mountaineers should first complete courses with qualified guides. Alpine sports are only carefree when the necessary safety measures are taken. If you dare to climb, you should definitely be trained in one of the climbing schools beforehand.

The quickest and safest vertical kick is our via ferrata on the Dachstein "from easy to very difficult"! You will need: good mental and physical fitness and the right equipment. Our alpine schools ensure maximum safety.

Ramsau am Dachstein has a reputation as a climbing El dorado for miles around. No wonder, given the long tradition of alpine climbing and the 18 via ferratas

For the little climbers: kids-climb on the Sattelberg/Ramsau - guided climbing tours once a week; via ferrata "Hias" Silberkarklamm.

Adventure parks

Climbing fun for everyone

The regional adventure parks and climbing parks - run by qualified guides - are the first steps towards alpine sports. It’s all about gaining surefootedness and getting used to heights: clambering between trees and treetops, climbing jungle gyms and light rock walls, hovering with the Flying Fox, securing ropes and much more. All this means getting to take part in the "higher" challenges. The adventure parks also have special facilities for children. Here, too, safety is the top priority.

Running and Nordic walking

Get fit and healthy on your holiday

Running and Nordic walking
Running and Nordic walking are real “fountains of youth”. Both sports are proven to keep you fit, are inexpensive and require no special equipment or prior knowledge. The regional opportunities for these endurance sports cover a world of different requirements - for young and old, beginners and old hats. Guided tours by the tourism associations complete the deal.

The entrance to the regional running and Nordic walking network begins, practically on the front doorstep of the Keinprecht hotels. A regional speciality is the Nordic walking circuit in Pichl (Schladming). It comprises six signposted routes over a total distance of over 50 km. The sunny Ramsau am Dachstein plateau is also a place of interest for fans of this sport, as it has the most extensive running and Nordic walking network in the region, with eight marked trails ranging from one to 42 km and at an altitude of 1000 to 1700 m.

Riding holidays

Versatile summer holidays

Summer activities in the region around Schladming are practically limitless. Playing tennis, Nordic walking, cultural daytrips - you’ll find all this and much more with us. With the Schladming Dachstein Sommercard you have lots of discounts and free admissions!

How about exploring the region in a scenic flight from above? The "Club Sportunion Niederöblarn" (30 km from Schladming, 15 km from Gröbming) organises sightseeing flights with propeller aircraft and gliders. The club also offers beginners and advanced courses for people who are interested.

Families and children especially love the many riding opportunities in the region: short or full day rides, pony riding, dressage and jumping for beginners and advanced riders - we have everything here.

We are happy to give you information about the varied active programme in the region. Send us a non-binding.
