We meet on Saltaus football field, next to the Hirzer cable car. From the spa town of Merano, it will take less than 15 minutes to drive to our rafting center. The drive from Scena, Dorf Tirol, Algund and Marling will take between 10 and 20 minutes. From Bolzano, the drive to reach us is 35 minutes.
Actually, always. After all, Merano has the best climate for rafting. We will do rafting trips on the wild Passer River from mid-May to the end of September. If you have three or more people, you can book your own rafting trip. Individual requests will be grouped together. We will have up to three rafting trips per day.
– Registration

– Handing out equipment (paddles, wetsuits, etc.); participants get dressed for the tour

The length of the tours vary. The “Adventure” rafting tour takes 3 ½ hours, of which we spend about 1 ½ hours on the river. The “Pirate Tour” takes 2 ½ to 3 hours, of which 1 ¼ hours of it is spent on the river. The “Adventure Light” route is slightly shorter.
Yes. All of our participants will get a life jacket, but everyone who wants to go rafting on Merano should have basic swimming skills.
Basically, yes, even when it is raining. If it has been raining for several days, then the tour may be subject to cancellation due to the high water level.
Bring a swimsuit, bikini or wetsuit. Those who own athletic shoes that can go in the water are encouraged to wear these during the departure. You should also bring a towel.
You can leave glasses and jewelry with us. As long as you don’t go white water swimming, you can keep your contact lenses in.
The equipment is cleaned after each departure with a special eco-friendly detergent for wetsuits.
If you want to have a fast-paced river trip, it is best to come between mid-May and the end of June. At this time the ice is melting and the water level is high.
If a storm is brewing overhead during the tour, we will stop, go to shore and exit the raft/canoe. Depending on the situation, we will either continue with the tour or cancel it.
It is best to reserve your white water rafting trip by phone. You can also make a reservation by email. In your email please specify the number of people, your phone number and desired dates.
You can pay for your river tour in cash when you arrive in Merano or Saltaus, or by bank transfer.
