Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your morning or afternoon white-water rafting adventure begins with pickup by minivan from either of the Interlaken train stations, or from your hotel in Interlaken or seven local municipalities. After transport to the base camp for your gear, you’re transferred by coach to Grindelwald valley. The 30-minute drive passes a fairy-tale Swiss landscape of chalets and grazing cows. 

On arrival at the put-in point, you’ll learn paddling skills during an in-depth safety briefing. Then slip on your provided wetsuit, neoprene booties, life jacket and a helmet, and climb into your eight-passenger raft with your professional river guide.

Pushing away from the bank into the glacial flow of the Lütschine River, your guide navigates the raft through continuous class III rapids that race into the Interlaken valley at speeds of up to 8 mph (13 kph). Then, hold on tight and feel your adrenaline pumping and as you maneuver through breaking waves and raging currents in class IV rapids.

You’re rewarded with postcard-perfect Alpine scenery and time to relax as the rafts calmly drift down to the Lake of Brienz. Dip in for a quick swim in the lake before returning to base camp, where you’re offered the option of a hot shower along with a cold beer or cup of coffee. 

If you wish, purchase any digital photos taken of your rafting excursion, before you're transferred  back to your hotel or railway station.
