EXTREME SPORTS, Salzburg
There are several companies offering different kinds of extreme sport in Salzburg. We went rafting with a company called "Crocodile Sports". We were picked up by a van at our hostel before driving about 1 1/2 hour to reach our starting point. We had never done rafting before, and it was so much fun! The guide spoke very well English, and we learned how to raft in a secure and fun way. Recommended!
Equipment: You only need a swimsuit and a towel, Crocodile Sports will lend you the other gear needed.

One can do paragliding, kiteflying and other sports.Here is a shot taken from my paraglide over the lower Austrian alps
We weren't sure what they were using this for, but it must have been for some sort of extreme inner city snowboarding or something of the like. They also opened up a seasonal ice rink that offered some great ice skating with a great view of the Festung. Winter sports are a big part of Austrian culture.
