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.
