Fancy a sunset tour on Lake Constance ?
Though the sport of stand-up paddleboarding grew from surfing in faraway Hawaii, Lake Constance is actually an ideal place for beginners to try out this sport. Head over to the “Ländle SUP” school and rental station at Kaiserstrand in Lochau for high-quality rental equipment and a wide range of courses and tours. Certified SUP instructors train, guide and ensure the necessary safety precautions.
A wide range of activities is on offer at Lake Constance including SUP sunrise tours, SUP sunset tours and the SUP full moon tour. One highlight, for example, is the guided SUP tour on the Alter Rhein (Old Rhine river), which leads through the primeval-forest-like vegetation of the Rhein Delta nature reserve. Initially, the Alter Rhein river is fast flowing but at about the midway point it becomes tamer until it flows into Lake Constance. www.laendle-sup.at (German only)
The Surfmax surf school in Hard on Lake Constance is unique in offering SUP Yoga in which typical yoga exercises are carried out both on land and on the SUP paddleboard. www.surfmax.at (German only)
SUP and raft construction at 2,000 metres
Water lovers will find it easy to get their money’s worth in the mountains as well! In the Montafon Hochjoch area, for instance, there are two mountain lakes in the Seetal valley where you can paddle around. Meanwhile, Silvretta Montafon offers a complete package with guide, equipment, raft building, snack and even the cable car ticket! This special offer is available from 3 participants. Registration possible until 4 pm on the day before by contacting: Summer Activities Silvretta-Montafon
