Austria has a spectacular variety of rivers, many in wild valleys surrounded by sublime mountains, dramatic waterfalls and charming streams among forests. Glaciers provide a source of water all year round, while the melting of winter snow in the spring leads to high water levels and strong currents. The water levels changing by the seasons have a huge impact on the speed, surface and nature of the rivers, determining its present level of safety and which sport it is suitable for. This is a key aspect when taking into account the timing of a shoot during planning, especially if it is an action shoot incorporating sports on the river. Local sport centers, that cater for visitors ensure that even these deep areas of nature are easily accessed, providing easy transport for film crews and their equipment. Therefore Austrian rivers have a unique alignment of stunning surroundings, fierce waters and accessibility making them brilliant locations for film and photo shoots.
