White water in the alps

Post by Benny_V »

Hi,

Looking for a little advice here. Myself and my gf are currently on a European road trip. Come Mid / late September will be in North Italy with an undecided route as of yet. Have our boats and equipment and wondering if there is still enough water around anywhere in the alps at that time of year? Will probably hire a guide but looking for advice on areas / countries that may have water at this time of year

There's less water about than usual. See thread here: https://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/for ... 3&t=136107

Upper Oetz and Venterache are usually running. Though most rivers have already dropped by then.
