Multiday Packrafting Training Basic
"The weekend was again super nice, exhausting, challenging and very instructive for me. We had a really fun group, I felt very comfortable with it and with the guides. A personal thank you to you, it is always wonderful to be on the road with you."
A participant from the Saarland
Your entry into the adventure of multiday packrafting: travel independently with backpack and packraft.
In this course we teach the basics of what packrafts were created for: Being independently on the road with a lightweight boat. Unlike the four-day Multiday courses, however, this course requires no prior experience in camping, outdoor living, or food preparation on the road.
