Daredevil Destination: Snow Kayaking in Austria

What comes to mind when you think of Austria? Perhaps helicopter tours of the majestic beauty of the Alps? Charming mountain villages full of people clad in leather breeches? How about a bunch of people racing down snow-covered mountains in kayaks?

The daredevil sport of snow kayaking officially came onto the scene back in 2002 when a small group in Lienz, Austria, held the first formal race.  The first world championship was held in Lienz in 2007.
If you are considering giving it a try for yourself, there are places in Austria and other parts of the world that offer instruction and time to practice your new skill.  If you’d like to try it on your own, you will need snow gear, including a helmet and goggles, and a sturdy kayak and paddle.  Choose a wide, open hill with no obstacles, since the steering is very imprecise.  With a basic amount of caution and preparation, you can master the art of snow kayaking.
Even if you’re not the daredevil type, it’s certainly a spectator sport worth watching. Thinking of planning your next vacation? Contact GC Flights to see the Grand Canyon like you’ve never seen it before.
