Rafting and Packrafting in Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt

Every year the section of the river Traun between Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt and Lauffen is transformed, throughout the summer months, into an exciting playground for rafting. Equipped with a helmet and a wetsuit, the rafting fun begins!

The most popular adventure sport rafting

Rafting is undoubtedly one of the most popular adventure sports in Austria. Groups of 6 persons or more can book their individual adventure, at any time, through Sport Zopf in Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt. Individuals can join in rafting tours on Wednesdays and Saturdays from May through to September.

Equipped with a wetsuit, helmet and life vest, a maximum of 8 persons per boat take part in this exciting river challenge. Ability to swim is, of course, a necessity for all those taking part. You only have to bring a swimsuit and a towel, the rest of the equipment will be provided from Sport Zopf. 

The section of the river from Lake Hallstatt to Lauffen is approx. 10 km long, and takes 2 hours to complete. Throughout your adventure, six weirs are going to be passed. We hope you enjoy getting wet!



Packrafting in Bad Goisern

Even for some experienced water sports enthusiasts, "packrafting" is an unknown term. A packraft is a compact and light inflatable boat for one person and some luggage. It can be stowed in a backpack and thus easily transported to remote rivers and lakes. It is not comparable to a canoe in terms of stability, but it is ideal for short excursions or hiking tours where you also want to walk along waterways.
