Fun and action - experience wild water safely

Despite the calm character of the Mur, it is advisable to board the boat of your choice wearing a life jacket and helmet.

Life vest
No matter whether you go swimming voluntarily or involuntarily. The vest saves energy when swimming and provides a little warmth. It also 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 you if you lose your balance in shallow 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.

All equipment is always included when you book a tour. Helmets, vests and suits are available in a wide range of sizes.
