Whitewater Packrafting Trainings Tyrol/Lower Alps with Safety Training (open and advanced)
"Everything went just perfect (…) You could see the relief and pride, of successfully meeting challenges and not flipping over, in the eyes of every one grinning proudly after meeting torrents. Above all, we talked, listened, did nonsense and laughed even more. I am now richer of memories and got to know wonderful people. Thank you very much!"

Packrafting through the alpine valleys of Tyrol/Austria
Tirol offers sporty whitewater in an alpine backdrop. Dive into the mainly heavy waves of the Lech already in the open training and be taken away by the crystal clear glacial streams of the upper Isar into, an untouched wild river landscape in our advanced training.
An intensive day of whitewater safety training together with wwo combined whitewater and trekking days with light day packs, will make it possible to get to know various aspects and difficulties of whitewater paddling and train whitewater techniqe. In our even on two very different rivers.
Our alpine early summer highlight in Tirol is dedicated to physically fit people with a desire for challenge and adventure. The advanced trainings require paddlers and packrafters in good health and fitness and with sufficient whitewater paddling experience.
During all our whitewater trips you can individually deepen your knowledge of safely negotiation in easy to heavy whitewater.
The trainings in Tyrol are also suitable for preparation for expedition style trips that include whitewater sections such as our Iceland expeditions.
Within the streams and on gravel banks, we will teach you different security technologies of whitewater packrafting, and certain packrafting techniques. With our two guides we have the possibility to handle the different knowledge stages within the group.
Of course you can rent the complete packrafting equipment as well as the whitewater security gear from us. Additionally you can also take the chance and try out different equipment of our fleet.
The evenings we spend in our base camp at the campsite, where we framed by the Karwedel mountains let the whitewater days end comfortably and there is time for socializing and exchange. One evening we usually share stories and anecdotes from the LWA team (here's the blog) and our plans for future adventures.

Impressions from the trainings
Schedule and area
The arrival to the location is until 12 noon on the first training day. On that afternoon, we start with safety training the part of the Lech, close to our campsite. The open training then continues on various parts of the Lech with increasing difficulty and focus on skill training. The advanced training will carry out an extended Packrafting day on the Lech on the second training day and, if the conditions are suitable, paddle on the more challenging upper part of the Isar on the third training day. In the evenings we, of course, have the possibility sitting together, tasting the local delicacies and exchange experiences with expert packrafters.
The trip ends on the afternoon of the third training day, for the open training in Häselgehr and for the advanced training usually in Scharnitz at the exit of the upper Isar part.
Landscape and trip description: The valleys of Tirol
The alpine valleys of Tirol are during summer and winter wonderful nature sites. The Lech extends on many kilometers through an alpine landscape without barrages or trapping points, and invites us to paddle.
The valley of the Isar within the Karwedel Mountains, is more narrow and a beautiful pearl in Tirol, when it comes to challenging rivers, flowing through changing nature scenes like forests and rocky gorges.
The valley of the Lech and the Karwedel Mountains offer not only whitewater activities, you can also choose between different adventures and combine this trip with a vacation in Tirol.
We are donating a part of your participation fee for river conservation: LWA Nature conservation
