Crystal Blue – that was the name of the 2016 World Rowing Tour which inspired a 2017 private trip. It is both an evocative and an accurate name. The lakes are stunningly beautiful, the water ranging in hues of blues and greens. Surrounded by rock walls, high mountains or wooded hills, each lake has a distinctive character, as do the towns which dot the shores. Rowing is the perfect way to experience the Salzkammergut, the Austrian Lake District. You will drop your oars into six different lakes, all readily accessible from our base in the spa town, Bad Ischl. And while the water may be cold in the spring, the warmth of the welcome is anything but. Austrian culture, history, hospitality, food, wine and beer are all exceptional. Add in visits to Salzburg and Vienna and your time off the water will be as spectacular as the rowing.
