Destination

District Drau/Rosegg

Turn-by-turn directions

A certified canoe instructor will equip you with the necessary safety clothing for your tour and show you all the necessary paddle strokes to steer the canoe safely along the Drau. He accompanies you in your 2-4 seater canoe, there is also enough space for your personal equipment. The river Drau flows very calmly and gently through Villach. Here you can enjoy the city of Villach from a different point of view. The further you approach the mouth of the Gail and the Draus reservoir in Rosegg, the more peaceful the currents of the Drau become. A refreshment along the way will also be provided. At a joint picnic we offer you a real "Carinthian snack" with products from surrounding organic farmers. Strengthened we start the last part of our tour and move almost silently past the harmonious places of the flat water biotope Föderlach. Shortly before the weir in Drau/Rosegg our tour ends and we take you back to Lake Faaker See.
