GeoRafting

Experience earth’s history in a rafting boat aka “Travel through time, do sports and explore Salza valley”. If exercising and going on an adventure alone don’t do it for you because you also want to learn something new, this tour might be the right choice for you. Take this tour to learn all about the Gesäuse region, the Nature & Geopark and the formation of the Salza valley. Our trained GeoRaft guides have a certain Styrian charm and are happy to tell everything you might want to know. The best way to experience this unique landscape is by taking a rafting tour on the Salza river. This tour allows you to discover 200-million-year-old rocks, conglomerates and deposits from the Ice Age, beautiful gorges, as well as steep slopes with a unique biodiversity. At the same time, our GeoRaft guide loves to tell stories and will make sure you don’t get bored along the way. Get ready to go on an adventure!

In cooperation with our Gesäuse partner, the Nature & Geopark offers a Raftingcamp in Palfau:
