Canoe Tours & Stand-Up Paddling

Stand-up paddling and canoeing in Styria allow you to experience the River Mur and its wetland plains, the Feistritz and Lafnitz rivers and area around the Raab in a whole new light.

Close to the Water

There are many opportunities to enjoy the relaxing recreational activity of canoeing right on your doorstep. Whole new perspectives, idyllic landscapes and a more relaxed way of life are opened up to the canoeist on guided canoe tours on the Mur, Raab, Feistritz and Lafnitz rivers. Styrian rivers are the perfect place to cool off in the height of summer. It’s cooler in any case at the waterside and enticing shade is cast by numerous trees that line the river, especially in the lush riparian forests. You paddle alongside unspoiled alluvial river shores, sunny sandbanks and take in Styria’s scenic beauty and unspoiled nature.

Incidentally, so-called stand-up paddling originated in Hawaii and is a relatively new trend in the sports industry. A number of real fanatics have sprung up in Styria’s thermal spa and volcanic region.
