Whitewater Packrafting Trainings Alps (Tyrol/Alpine foothills) with Safety Training (open and advanced)

Packrafting through the alpine valleys of the Alps

Tirol offers sporty whitewater in an alpine backdrop. Dive into the mainly heavy waves of the Lech already in the open training and be taken away by the crystal clear glacial streams of the upper Isar into, an untouched wild river landscape in our advanced training.

Since 2021 firmly in our program within the framework of this Alpine tour is our course in Bavaria in the beautiful area around Zugspitze and Karwendel which takes place on two dates around the Tyrol courses. Originated due to closed national borders 2020, was according to our participants a blast! A small personal report from this course can be found in the Land Water Blog: Alps in special times - freestyle Bavaria and Tyrol

An intensive day of whitewater safety training together with wwo combined whitewater and trekking days with light day packs will make it possible to get to know various aspects and difficulties of whitewater paddling and train whitewater techniqe. In our advanced training even on two very different rivers.

Our alpine early summer highlight in Tyrol and the Alpine foothills is dedicated to physically fit people with a desire for challenge and adventure. The advanced trainings require paddlers and packrafters in good health and fitness and with sufficient whitewater paddling experience.

During all our whitewater trips you can individually deepen your knowledge of safely negotiation in easy to heavy whitewater.

The trainings in Tyrol are also suitable for preparation for expedition style trips that include whitewater sections such as our Iceland expeditions.

Within the streams and on gravel banks, we will teach you different security technologies of whitewater packrafting, and certain packrafting techniques. With our two guides we have the possibility to handle the different knowledge stages within the group.

Of course you can rent the complete packrafting equipment as well as the whitewater security gear from us. Additionally you can also take the chance and try out different equipment of our fleet.

The evenings we spend in our base camp at the campsite, where we framed by the Karwedel mountains let the whitewater days end comfortably and there is time for socializing and exchange. One evening we usually share stories and anecdotes from the LWA team (here's the blog) and our plans for future adventures.

Our Whitewater Trainings Alps and Covid-19

We have summarized our guidelines and concepts regarding the SARS-CoV-2 ("Corona") pandemic on our Covid-19 overview page.

Data 2022

In 2022 we are again spending two weeks on our journey through the Alps between the Alpine Foothills in Germany and Tyrol in Austria and take you with us to the Alpine river pearls of the northern Alps.

We recommend beginners to start their whitewater career with us in the Alpine Foothhills (Alpen1-2022 or Alpen4-2022), where we start with the basic paddling technique on a lake. The introduction in the waves of Tyrol is much more demanding, interested parties without paddling experience therefore please switch to the course Alpen1-2022 in Bavaria.

As every year, we offer you different combinations of our 3- to 4-day courses, depending on the level of demand and experience. Also a booking of a single training is possible depending on experience level. These are your booking options:
