Boat rental Gosau

Gosau, Oberösterreich , Österreich

Rent a boat or a Stand Up Paddle Board and enjoy the Lake Gosau with it´s fantastic view on the Dachstein massive.

Every year in July, August and early September you can rent electric boats, pedal boats or stand up paddle boards and glide along the mountain lake, the Lake Gosau, surrounded by the majestic Dachstein and the Gosaukamm.

The lakes of Gosau in the Dachstein Salzkammergut

A total of three lakes can be explored in the rear Gosau valley: the Lake Gosau, the Upper Lake Gosau and in between the Gosaulacke, which is only visible during snowmelt and heavy rainfall. The reason for that is, that the Gosaulacke is filled by the overflowing of the Upper Lake Gosau and then runs into the Lake Gosau.

The lakes in the rear Gosau valley are beautifully embedded in the UNESCO World Heritage Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut and enchant not only with their unique panoramic views of the Dachstein and the Gosau Glacier, but also with their excellent and crystal-clear drinking water quality.
