The Class III-IV+ Lammer River skirts the town of Abtenau, near the St. Martin resort in Salzburg, Austria. In its upper reaches beginners and groups with children can enjoy some of the longer Class II-III stretches. If you continue downstream you’ll hit the 1.5km uninterrupted Class IV+ whitewater of Lammeröfen—one of the narrowest navigable passes of the river that contains the Entrance Cataract and Elephant’s Teeth rapids. At times rafts barely fit and this adds to the excitement of the trip which has rafters ensconced in a gorge towering hundreds of meters above their heads.
