Kayaking in Tirol, Austria on the Ötztaler Ache

In short the Oetz river is famous for the Sicklike world class kayaking race. It was organised as an Adidas sponsored World cup event for downriver creek/river runner category for many years till 2017. Its been on hold for a while but in 2022 it was reorganised under the name of Oetz Trophy.

There are multiple sections for advanced kayakers to choose from. Not quite that much for beginners and a few for intermediate booters. We found quite big volume in our time of visit so we decided to go with a safer bit less demanding  yet rowdy looking option, to paddle the upper section of the river, a medium volume Class 4. Enjoy the footage with great local background music.
