Come aboard: beginners, pros and teams

Beginner groups, professionals or mixed teams - the Mur offers a fun experience for everyone. The tours are characterized by their varied character. Calm gliding passages are followed by action-packed whitewater sections with guaranteed fun. The combination of a relaxed experience of nature and a sporty challenge means pure entertainment. You can even enjoy a relaxing barbecue at our picnic spot if you wish. The ultimate team challenge awaits you at the end - the joint jump from the bridge into the refreshing water.

The Mur - a first-class paddling experience

The longest river in Styria is the perfect place for extraordinary water sports moments. It winds through a landscape that delights guests from all over the world. Experience a river course lined with nature that is ideal for your water sports activities.

The clear water (quality class 2) and the calm overall character offer ideal conditions for unforgettable group excursions. The river is suitable for groups of all kinds. The guides know the Mur and know what to do. They accompany your tour and ensure that everything runs smoothly!

Inflatable boat or Mega-SUP - fun guaranteed

The chosen sports equipment determines the challenge of the tour. The classic inflatable boat offers space for 8 people and their equipment. Up to 10 friends or colleagues form a team on the mega stand-up paddle board. The goal - stay on top of it!
Our tip: Take both with you and try them out!

  • Mega stand up paddle board:
    Teamwork is required here. 10 people. 10 paddles. One opponent - gravity.
  • Inflatable canoe:
    Comfortable fun for one or two passengers. Active paddling or drifting with the flow- the choice is yours.
  • Inflatable boat:
    The classic inflatable boat is perfect for groups who want to experience the Mur tour together.

Transportation to the selected starting point is provided by a former fire department bus and is an experience in itself.

Fun and action - conquer the river together safely

Your safety is our top priority. That's why we provide you with life jackets and helmets on every tour. These not only protect you from unforeseen situations, but also allow you to enjoy your activity as much as possible.

Life vest

Regardless of whether you go swimming voluntarily or involuntarily. The vest saves energy when swimming and offers protection from driftwood and stones. It also provides a good grip for pulling yourself back into the boat.


The helmet provides protection from branches and twigs protruding from the shore, as well as from the paddles of other riders. The helmet also protects your head in shallower water.

Neoprene suit

It keeps you warm, protects you from the sun and wind and helps to prevent injuries in the water. With the right shoes, getting in and out of the water is easy.

When you book a tour, all the necessary equipment is included in the package. Different sizes ensure a perfect fit.
