Packraft – What's that?

Packrafts, trekking boat or backpack boat, are basically hardwearing inflatable boats, dinghy. With this robustness and the spray deck, it is also possible to use them in white water. Because of their large air volume, these boats are very stable and thus make it easyer for everyone to enter white water, which was previously only possible with heavy white water kayaks.The packrafts impress with their low weight and small pack size. This means that the boats can be carried along with great effort during hiking, cycling or in public transport. This opens up entirely new possibilities.

Wildwasserkajak versus Packraft

Those who have been interested in white water sports had to resort to heavy, unwieldy white water kayaks. With a white water kayak you need a car with roof rack. In general, several vehicles are used to transport the entire material. In order to store the kayak, boat houses are needed, which is usually associated with the association of a club. Traveling by plane is cumbersome, requires longer planning, additional costs, discussions and safeguards with the airline. All this is lost with a packraft.
Advantages of a Packraft. Very light and small pack size, very tipping stable, more environmentally friendly, encourages spontaneity, no extra costs for transport or storage, easy to repair.

Understand white whater

With over 20 years of experience in white water, we can teach you the necessary knowledge and techniques in our courses.
Our motto to experience and understand wild water. In our training concept developed especially for Packrafter, we provide you with the correct and safe handling of the boats and the element of water. Whitewater is called any flowing water. Therefore, it is also very important for occasional paddlers and / or hiking paddlers to deal with this issue. Most accidents happen by ignorance. Our ultimate goal is to train you to technically very good, responsible and safe paddlers. Whilst the fun and the adventures do not get lost.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in our courses!
