Information on a boat tour on the Drava

1. Route & duration

  • You can choose from one of our stage suggestions.
  • The duration of the tour depends on the chosen stage and your speed; the stages listed are only suggestions.
  • Rest areas, boat harbours and inns can be found along the route.

2. Getting there & meeting point

  • In the Upper and Lower Drava Valley (Lienz to Villach), we recommend travelling to the embarking point by train (ÖBB). The train stops beside our embarking and disembarking points.
  • Otherwise, we can meet at the stipulated end of the stage; you can park your car here. We will transfer to the embarking point together in our bus.

3. Briefing & safety

  • The briefing at the embarking point lasts 5-10 minutes.
  • The material (boat, swim vests, paddles, watertight bag and river map) is then issued.
  • All participants, without exception, must be able to swim.

4. Issue & return

  • The boats are handed out at one of our embarking points.
  • At the end of the stage, the boats are safely deposited upside down on the river bank; incidentals stowed underneath.
  • The boats and incidentals will be picked up later by our staff.
  • The tour ends here. You can travel home in your own car or by train.
