King of the Alps offers more than just an extreme kayak race. It has guided paddling tours, kayaking courses, rafting trips and even if your not a ‘big drop junkie’ the marathon race gives those that are good paddles an opportunity to battle right on in there with the best.

As a sponsor of King of the Alps we like to involve you from the beginning, not just during the race, but also in the run up to the event. There are great opportunities to showcase a brand and/or products. King of the Alps is open to all ideas from the sponsors, as well as making suggestions and ideas for them.

The organizer DRD4 and what is it?

DRD4 is a gene which detects dopamine in our brains and when we see, hear, taste, smell, touch or experience something new, exactly this dopamine is distributed in our bodies.

It then depends on the amount that is distributed, if we feel calm and tranquil or frightened and stressed. If we are astonished by something, dopamine leads us to being happy and satisfied. This makes us somehow addicted to the feeling and we want more dopamine. Therefore, we look for adventure and new experiences; we want to learn and our sense for fantasy, creativity and sex is raised.

Nowadays, it is proven that extreme athletes have got a greater developed DRD4-gene developed than “ordinary” people. Being kayakers, we belong to exactly this kind of people.
