PACKRAFTS ARE

  • Super light, weighing as little as 2.3 kg!
  • Extremely stable, even in whitewater.
  • Small, packing down to the size of one man tent
  • Super robust and hard to damage, but easy to fix
  • Much more comfortable then a normal kayak 
  • Highly addictive (consider yourself warned…)
  • Able to carry heaps of gear, even a bike!

Packrafting, in short, is a mix of kayaking (or rafting) and tramping. They are paddled like a kayak but have the stability of a Raft. The boats themselves are super light and  fold down to the size of a one man tent.
