The beginning of this tour is in Oberdrauburg. From here on we go gently on the waves of water of the river Drava. In banks dense plant it's easy to admire nested herons.
Slowly we admire the beautiful scenery with lovely mountain villages, small ravines and opening of small streams.
At the foot of the castle de Stein, there is a good possibility of mooring.
About 5 km downstream from the end point of the canoe trip we can reach Dellacher Drauoase. A fireplace invites us to a barbecue.
