Kayaking Holidays in the Alps

Summer in the Alps is a haven for white water enthusiasts. With glacial water coming fast off the mountains, there are some great Kayaking rivers in the Alps. Long white water rapids and clear snow melt waters make kayaking in the Alps popular with adventurers from all over the world.

For advanced Kayakers, the Alps is awash with raging rivers and difficult rapids but there is also great kayaking in the Alps for beginners and families to enjoy as well. For those looking for more extreme kayaking in the Alps then it is recommended to visit in late spring. At this time of year the snow is melting from higher up the mountains creating large rapids of fast flowing water. Kayaking in the summer in the Alps is better suited to beginners and families although there are still some more extreme kayaking spots to be found.

Your summer kayaking holiday in the Alps can be made all the more enjoyable by staying in a luxury summer chalet. After your long day of paddling through rapids and using all the muscles in your arms, what better way to relax than in your hot tub with a view or summer chalet with a sauna? A summer chalet in the Alps with a BBQ is a popular alpine holiday option. Al Fresco dining with a beer in hand is the perfect end to the day following your alpine white water kayaking adventure.
