Our family business

…located (office) in St.Gallen (Styria, not Switzerland!!) in the region of the Nature Park “Eisenwurzen” - in the immediate vicinity of two national parks, “Gesäuse” and "Kalkalpen”.

The trips on our wooden rafts take place on the Upper Austrian part of the Enns River in the barrage of Großraming – and so the Kalkalpen National Park forms the scenic backdrop for our offers, which is as impressive as historically interesting.

Wood raft mastery Dirninger

We have been carrying out wood raft trips since the 1980s and thus rightly call ourselves the pioneers of modern wood rafting in Austria.

Wood rafting is a family tradition for us: both our father Herbert Dirninger and his brother Walter worked as wood rafters on the Enns and Salza rivers after the war. This gave rise to the idea in the 1980s to revive wood rafting on the Enns - this time for guests from Austria and abroad, and no longer for the transport of wood and iron.

The revolutionary raft-building system we developed, using modern lashing technology instead of ropes and twisted hazel branches used in the past, made modern passenger wood rafting in Austria possible for the first time - and has found several imitators by now.

Our wood raft trips, which are well-known from films, radio and television, guarantee an intensive experience of nature and quiet, contemplative moments as well as fun and an unique atmosphere. With us you will forget everyday life for a while....

With our highly trained wood raft masters and trainers, we not only organise wood raft and canoe trips, but are also your ideal partner for team training and incentives. These are professionally organised and carried out by us - for groups from 10 to 200 people!

We have been true to our guiding principles for years:

  • 1 |

    Highly trained wood raft masters and trainers in a team that enjoys its work

  • 2 |

    Individual care - time for you!

  • 3 |

    Authenticity and regional focus - we indulge our guests with regional products from local businesses

  • 4 |

    Experience and enjoy nature responsibly

  • 5 |

    Quality over quantity, safety first

  • 6 |

    Satisfaction and enthusiasm of our guests is our ultimate goal!
