Tour Description

The East Glacial River is renowned as one of the most thrilling rivers in Europe, with a classification of 4+. We assure you that an incredible adventure awaits you with our team.

To begin your journey, we will equip you with all necessary gear and knowledge at our boathouse. From there, we will transport you to the East valley for the rafting put-in. Our knowledgeable guides will deliver a safety briefing that covers all of the necessary information to maximize your experience.

During the 16 km journey through the East Glacial canyon, you will encounter rapids like Alarm Clock, Commitment, Screaming Lady, and the famous Green Room. Depending on water levels, we may also take a break for cliff jumping to add a bit of extra excitement.

We offer a large selection of wetsuits of high quality. Due to difficult conditions that can occur in glacial rivers, we do not offer dry suits. This is done to ensure the safety of our customers.
