A multi-facetted element: water experiences in Zell am See-Kaprun
Refreshment in the lake, discovery tour to the Alpine reservoirs and enjoying snow on the glacier
(lifePR) (Zell am See, )Water is omnipresent in Zell am See-Kaprun. In its crystalline, frozen form on the glacier of Kitzsteinhorn or liquid and refreshing down in the valley in Lake Zell: especially in the warm months guests get to know water in its most beautiful facets. Six lidos promise carefree swimming fun in summery temperatures. And if the weather does not cooperate, guests can swim lane after lane at Zell's indoor swimming pool or the wellness oasis TAUERN SPA in Kaprun. Surfing, water skiing, kayaking, rafting or canyoning: holidaymakers who are looking for a thrilling new experience are spoilt for choice here. Professional athletes appreciate the region's fabulous conditions, too, and flock to the heart of Pinzgau to compete against each other at contests like the 'Earl of Pearl' or the hardest endurance competition, the IRONMAN 70.3 in summer of 2012.
One of Europe's most fascinating natural spectacles awaits guests at the Sigmund-Thun-Klamm gorge. While walking along a 340-metre-long system of wooden catwalks, visitors marvel at the white-water spectacle of the Kapruner Arche river - even in torch light, at the weekly 'Incredible Night of Water'. The Alpine reservoirs in Kaprun for their part boast stateof- the-art technology that visitors can learn about during a guided tour of the retaining walls. A museum takes guests on a journey to the 'Electricity & Ice Adventure World' - a hot tip for families with children. At Zell's traditional Lake Festival, the picturesque heart of the region becomes the focal point of all activities once again. On 6th August a diversified programme, live music, and culinary treats will enthral young and old alike.
From 10.45 pm breathtaking fireworks accompanied by music will illuminate the nightly sky above the region and mark the end of one of the most popular festivals in the province of Salzburg.
