Extreme Kayak Championships September 21 – 24, 2023

Oetz / Tyrol / Austria

Welcome to the OETZ TROPHY – Extreme Kayak Championships

The OETZ TROPHY provides the perfect setting for the ultimate showdown of the white water kayaking scene. The best male and female kayakers from different disciplines and all parts of the world will meet here. The Wellerbrücke section, on which the finals will take place, is one of the most complex and challenging whitewater courses in the world. With its numerous drops and rapids already extremely difficult to navigate, this whitewater course becomes an even tougher challenge at race speed.
