Rafting on the Vorderrhein


The popular rafting tour takes you through the impressive Vorderrhein canyon, one of the most popular white water stretches in the Alps.
The 20-kilometer long river section between Ilanz and Reichenau offers a very successful combination of pleasurable and exciting white water rapids as well as an extraordinarily beautiful landscape with vertical cliffs, deep chasms, and steep scree slopes.
The approximately three-hour tour is suitable for adults and children aged 10 and above. Children above 8 years of age can participate in the second, less rapid part of the rafting tour that starts at Versam.
Half-day and one-day tours, overnight trips, special family tours, hydrospeed, and canoe trips are offered.
