In Oetz you can start a rafting trip down its eponymous river. 7.5km into your paddle the Oetz joins the Inn River near Imst. From there you can continue for another 7 km to Haiming.

The Oetz River is one of Austria’s most exciting rivers and is rated as a Class IV+ river. It is a very high volume river that is fed by two melting glaciers. The current is swift and the stopper waves require attentiveness. You must be at least16 years old and have previous rafting experience to raft on the Oetz. We offer and highly recommend a warm up trip on the Inn River before taking on the Oetz.
