Learn more about packrafting

On a packrafting expedition, you’ll learn a combination of skills you can use to travel while backpacking and while paddling rivers and lakes. You’ll spend part of your time learning water navigation on inflatable rafts, practicing paddle techniques and hazard assessment. When you’re not on the water, you’ll pack your raft into your backpack and set out on foot, practicing skills like packing and carrying your gear and navigating in small groups on and off trail. With the challenges of learning two different skills and terrain types, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy on these courses!
