Austria, like South Tyrol, is known for its wonderful river and lake landscape as well as their excellent water quality.

So it’s no wonder that many guests from abroad also use the local waters to indulge their passion for fishing. But especially when the journey is far, it would definitely be worthwhile in some cases to use the plane. There are several hosts of Adventure Fischwasser not far from an airport.

Fishing in the south of Austria – Klagenfurt Airport

Thanks to Klagenfurt Airport, there is an optimal way to get to the Villach – Faaker See – Ossiacher See region .  With its crystal clear and fish-rich waters like the Faaker See, the Afritzer See, the Brennsee and the Ossiacher See. Fly fishermen can use the beautiful fishing spots on the Gail, while huchen fishermen can be found on the Drau. The family sports hotel Brennseehof **** s on the Brennsee and the Strandhotel Prinz with its own beach on the Ossiacher See are ideal hosts. All of these hosts can be reached within an hour’s drive from the airport.

Fishing holiday in the heart of Austria – Salzburg Airport

The Hotel **** Das Maier , home of top chef Johanna Maier in Filzmoos, can be reached quickly by air travelers with a journey time of 52 minutes from the airport.

Explore South Tyrol’s fishing waters – Bolzano Airport

The AROSEA Life Balance Hotel near the Austrian border is also logistically well suited for a fishing holiday by plane. Bolzano Airport is 50.3 kilometers from the destination. The AROSEA scores with its proximity to the Ultner reservoir and mountain lakes and the Grünsee. The adventure hotel Waltershof ****, whose guests can use the same wonderful alpine fishing waters, is only 5 minutes away by car.

In principle, the accommodations of Abenteuer Fischwasser also offer fishing equipment for hire. However, if you prefer to take your own equipment with you, you can of course also transport it by plane. You can find tips on transporting fishing rods here

For everyone who is traveling by plane and is unlucky with the flight connection – we have another tip ready:

According to the European passenger law regulation, an airline in the EU is liable for delays or flight cancellations in many cases. So it is quite possible that part of the costs will be reimbursed and that part of the fishing vacation can be refinanced. You can find out under what conditions this is possible here
