Adventure tour: Rubber Dinghy Tour from Schönau to Orth/Danube

With National Park rangers as your guides, get into a rubber dinghy and float down the powerful Danube, passing steep bluffs, gravel banks and ships. Become one with nature! Feel the elementary power of the river with every paddle. Kick back and relax on one of the many gravel banks. Take in the wetlands with all your senses: smell the river, observe the lush flora, and be on the lookout for rare fauna.

Meeting point for this tour is at the Uferhaus restaurant in Orth/Danube. National Park rangers will greet you and then travel with you in your own bus to Schönau. After group participants have been assigned to their respective dinghies – and after providing basic instructions on how to paddle – your ranger guides will paddle with you to a Danube side arm. Things get really exciting when the boats enter the free-flowing stretch of the Danube and drift downstream on the strong current. The National Park's unique water connectivity project and the way it benefits the animal kingdom are featured in this part of the journey. The tour ends where it began in Orth/Danube – an unforgettable experience for all.
