Europe's premier whitewater festival: The Level Six King of The Alps. Located in Merano in the Passeiertal Valley in Italy this beautiful area offers an abundance of outdoor opportunities and is especially known for its beautiful scenery and amazing whitewater.
We specifically choose to be a part of this event because of its inclusiveness. It truly is a well-rounded event that all paddlers and families can appreciate and enjoy. There are a number of Class 2, 3, 4 and 5 whitewater sections that can challenge any paddlers ability, and there are rafting options for any non-paddlers that want to attend!
After doing some paddling of your own you can then watch or take part in a number of different races including the extreme European Championship race. All the race courses are easily visible as the river runs right through town! You can sit back and enjoy the action, and watch the top paddlers in the world try to claim the title of King and Queen of the Alps or attempt to take the crown yourself!
The parties, movie night, fun races, and endless activities that are apart of this event for paddlers and non-paddlers alike make it the premier paddling event in the world. We couldn't be more proud and excited to be a part of it! June 7 - 9 2019 For more information go to https://www.king-alps.com/
