Water Sports in South Tyrol

Canoeing, rafting and river boating on South Tyrol’s mountain streams

Lakes and rivers help characterize South Tyrol’s landscape. The Passer river attracts canoeists and water sports enthusiasts from across South Tyrol/Südtirol and from all over the world.

Lakes and rivers help characterize South Tyrol’s landscape. The Passer river attracts canoeists and water sports enthusiasts from across South Tyrol/Südtirol and from all over the world. The mountain stream rises at the Timmelsjoch mountain pass, flows through Val Passiria/Passeiertal Valley to Merano/Meran and empties into the Etsch river. This is why the canoe route runs through the middle of the spa town.

A highlight for families is a joint rafting trip on the Passer river or a Tarzaning tour, where rock walls become slides. When river boating on the Etsch, families can steer the boat themselves and travel leisurely along the quiet river from the village of Postal/Burgstall to the village of Firmano/Firmian.

 
 

Merano has long been a center for canoeing, as the Passer river, as well as the Etsch river, provide ideal conditions for canoe enthusiasts.
