Packraft taster course - Allgäu Germany

Packrafting Allgäu / Germany

The Iller rises as the confluence of the three source streams Stillach, Breitach and Trettach near Oberstdorf. In its upper reaches it offers easy white water in the difficulty levels I - II + in the midst of a beautiful mountain backdrop.

This weekend you can enjoy a wonderful landscape and an unforgettable group experience. The whole thing is crowned with the learning to maneuver your packraft safely through the rapids.

Course content:
Material science, safe wet exit and reentry in a packraft, basic paddling techniques, fluid dynamics, edding, safety and much more.

Our trial courses are special offers to get to know the sport better and to find out whether if you like packrafting. Of course, these two course days do not replace our professional five-day beginner courses.

Packrafting at Allgäu Alps 2020 Packraft Touren
During the Packraft taster course we will paddle the river called Iller between Oberstdorf and Immenstadt.
Due to many unpredictable factors, the guide will always decide which section to paddle, always taking into account water levels, weather and needs of the participants.

This could be your smile after a successful river trip. 2020 Packraft Touren
The river Iller is ideal for packraft beginners. It meanders through the Allgäu Alps, in the repeatedly quiet sections you can relax from the lively but technically not very demanding rapids or you can take a break on the beautiful gravel banks. Arrival and departure by train or bus is easy thanks to the good connection. All entry and exit points can be reached via the idyllic Iller hiking or cycling path.
