Big Gorge on the Isel River / Austria

The Isel River in Austria is a famous big water river in Austria, in the last week we had a very low water level on the river, so we had the chance to paddle the upper gorge, which is paddled not very often. The problem is that mostly there is too much water for this section. The gorge is very beautiful, but very cold in November and also hard whitewater and some difficult portages.

Scouting
