Water sports

Surfing, pedal boats, & kayaking

Experience a wonderful day on the reservoir in Gerlos. Located on the lake is Austria's highest-lying boat rental, which has been run by Hannes Hauser for over 35 years. In the summer months, the spring-fresh water warms up to a pleasant 21° and makes Gerlos a true summer highlight for your family vacation in the Zillertal. 

There is something for everyone: pedal boat rides, kayaking, stand-up paddling (SUP), or simply relaxing while splashing around and swimming. Enjoy the sun and nature on the shore of the lake on Kalle's dock with sunbathing area. This is the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation! With water temperatures of 18-23 degrees, the Gerlossee is a wonderful retreat for all vacationers who want to relax and unwind after an eventful day. 


We are happy to provide you with life jackets and wetsuits. You can earn your basic windsurfing license in only 5 days. Please be aware of the following regarding the various water sports:

Stand-up paddling on the Gerlossee

You don't need much for stand-up paddling (SUP). All you need is suitable water, a board, a paddle and you can get started! SUP is perfect fitness training for the whole body. For an upright posture and balancing on the board, you will use the muscles from the ankle to the neck. This will also involve the tightening of the abdominal muscles. The legs and deep muscles in the torso will get a good workout from the constant balancing. In addition, the SUP board is excellently suited for a short time-out: simply lay on top and enjoy the sun and nature. Or how about trying out a few yoga poses on the board?


Stand-up paddling prices

  • With guest card: € 8 per hour | € 6 half hour
  • Without guest card: € 11 per hour  | € 9 half hour
