Austria and South Tyrol are known for their beautiful river and lake landscapes and their excellent water quality.
It is no wonder then that many guests from abroad use the local waters to indulge their passion for fishing. When the journey is far, it is worthwhile in some cases to use air travel. Several hosts at Adventure Fish Water are not far from an airport.
Fishing in the south of Austria – Klagenfurt Airport
Thanks to the Klagenfurt airport, there is an easy way to get to the Villach – Lake Faaker See – Lake Ossiacher See Region. The area boasts crystal-clear and fish-rich waters like Lake Faaker See, Lakes Afritzer See, Brennsee and Ossiacher See. Fly fishermen can use the beautiful fishing spots on the Gail River and Danube salmon fishers will feel at home on the Drau River. Hosts here include Familien-Sporthotel Brennseehof **** s on Lake Brennsee and the Strandhotel Prinz with its own beach at Lake Ossiacher See. All these hosts can be reached within an hour’s drive from the airport.

Explore South Tyrol’s fishing waters – Bolzano Airport
Logistically well suited for a fishing vacation by plane, the AROSEA Life Balance Hotel is also close to the Austrian border. Bozen Airport is only 50.3 kilometers from the hotel. The AROSEA scores with its proximity to the Ulmer reservoir, mountain lakes, and Lake Grünsee. Just a 5-minute drive away is the Erlebnishotel Waltershof **** whose guests can use the same wonderful alpine fishing waters.
Basically the accommodation members of Adventure Fish Water offer fishing equipment rentals. However, if you prefer to bring your own equipment you can also transport it by plane. Tips for fishing rod transport can be found here
For all those who are traveling by plane and have bad luck with the flight connection – we have another tip ready:
According to the European Passenger Rights Regulation, an airline in the EU is in many cases liable for delays or flight cancellations. Therefore, it is quite possible that part of the costs will be refunded and you can refinance part of your fishing vacation. You can learn more about under which conditions this is possible here.
