Go water skiing on Lake Millstatt

Lake Millstatt offers a whole range of watersports for you to enjoy during your holiday. It is the second largest lake in Carinthia and also has the highest volume of water of any lake in Carinthia, which makes it an excellent place for watersports – in, on and under the water. Whether you enjoy adventurous activities or more leisurely fun, Lake Millstatt is a great destination for all water lovers.

Canoe to untouched shores

A bay discovery tour is a special activity that can only be experienced in Millstatt. Head out onto the lake in a rowing boat and glide over to the untouched woods on the southern shore of the lake. Explore hidden coves, row under branches and listen to the silence, interrupted only by the sound of your oars hitting the water: a nature experience that should not be missed.

Water skiing and boat rental

Water ski schools can be found in all of the large villages on Lake Millstatt and offer water skiing, monoskiing and wakeboarding. Whether you are trying these sports for the first time or have sped over a lake in this way before, the water ski schools all provide expert instruction. For more action, you can also do banana rides or tubing.

The water ski schools also often offer the option to rent pedalos or electric boats.


Most of the shoreline around Lake Millstatt drops off steeply and this makes it a great location for scuba diving. At its deepest point, the lake measures a depth of 141 metres and is home to a diverse underwater world just waiting to be discovered. For guided dives, diving taster sessions and equipment, simply contact one of the diving centres at the lake.

Sailing and windsurfing

In good winds, you can sail or windsurf on the lake. Windsurfing and sailing lessons are available from the windsurfing and sailing school in Millstatt, where you can also rent the necessary equipment.

The clear waters of Lake Millstatt and the warm Carinthian summers are a true delight for all watersports fans and the wide range of activities available makes for a varied holiday.
