The Location

Merano offers a vast majority of recreational activities, with a huge scope to provide specifically to the outdoors.


where to sleep

Of course one of the main problems when you are on the way is where to sleep!

At the event place (Sportplatz Moos in Passeier) we have a campsite spot for the participant. The place is a simply park place with sanitary facilities.

Anyway if you are looking for something more comfortable the valley is full of B&B.

We also recommend Camping Zögghof. The 2015 built four-star campsite, embedded in a beautiful mountain setting in St. Leonhard in Passeier.


Salza Rodeo 2022

from all over Europe, freestyle and other kayak enthusiasts of all levels will meet for kayak freestyle, boatercross and fun slalom at the Wildwasserzentrum Wildalpen on the Salza river.

On the competition days there will be an international competition as well as the Austrian national championship in freestyle, a boatercross competition and a fun slalom competition.

In addition to the finest whitewater, there will also be excellent catering, party time and a raffle with great prizes (including three Spade-kayaks).
