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 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 for beginners and families although there are still plenty 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 a long day tackling intense rapids and chilly mountain rivers under a clear blue sky, there’s no better way to relax than by watching the sunset over snow-capped peaks from a luxury chalet hot tub. Alternatively, revive tired muscles in your chalet’s private sauna, or settle down with a beer in hand for a hearty alfresco meal of local produce cooked on your summer chalet BBQ.
For a family-friendly kayaking experience in the French Alps, we love kayaking on Lac Montriond in Morzine. Morzine is one of our favourite summer resorts, and the beautiful lake at Montriond offers the perfect family activity day. With kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and wild swimming, there’s lots to enjoy, as well as a leisurely lunch in one of the casual lakeside restaurants or simply sun-bathing on the shore.
If you’re looking to learn a new skill the summer, then kayaking in the Austrian Alps combines adventure, natural beauty, and memorable moments. Head to St Anton where you can find beginner kayaking courses for adventures by day, and stunning chalets for summer holiday luxury as you relax in the evenings!
