Pack raft­ing is the most unique and un­par­al­leled ex­pe­ri­ence ad­ven­ture travel - a mix of hik­ing and pad­dling that takes you on a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery, ex­plor­ing rugged land­scapes by foot and “mild to wild” wa­ters by boat.

A pack raft is a mix be­tween a kayak & a raft, it is sta­ble and be­haves a bit like a raft but you pad­dle it like a kayak and it is so much lighter. Av­er­age weight of a boat is only 2.5kg.

You just can’t beat the mix of hik­ing, climb­ing, camp­ing and pad­dling that pack raft­ing makes pos­si­ble. Ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing in so many dif­fer­ent ways, hik­ing through forests, up glacier carved val­leys or over moun­tains; pad­dling across lakes, down rivers or in the ocean and camp­ing in stun­ning wilder­ness lo­ca­tions that can be sim­ply in­ac­ces­si­ble by any other means. Pack rafts, sim­ply put, re­de­fine out­door ad­ven­ture.
