You might not typically associate these water sports with a holiday region in the Austrian Alps.

Our local sailing, surfing, kite-boarding and diving schools offer fun and excitement on the water. Visitors to Lake Achensee can also try their hand at stand up paddling, canyoning, white-water swimming and rafting. More information about providers is available at
