Rafting in Garmisch
Rafting tours in Garmisch
Garmisch, short for Garmisch-Partenkirchen, is a stunning and big typically Bavarian town in the mountains. It is located in the centre of the beautiful region of Werdenfelser Land. The majority of people know this town for hosting big winter sport events such as the Winter Olympic Games in 1936 and the Ski as well as Ski Jumping World Cup.
Rafting tours in Garmisch take place on the Loisach river. You’ll have the choice between two different activities: Rafting for Families and Kayaking Trial-Day for Beginners. The first takes around 3 hours whereas the latter takes 6 hours to finish. Both are tours with an easy difficulty level and hence welcome kids from the age of 6 (for the rafting tour) and 12 (for the kayaking tour). The starting points of both tours are at the bases of the respective activities. They both are easily reached with public transport (about 1½ hours from Munich by train).
The meeting point for the rafting tour is at the rafting base in Fachant (a neighbouring village). There, you will be handed out your equipment and your guide will give you a short introduction. After that, you’ll walk to the tour’s starting point, and will come back to Farchant by train after your activity.
For those participating in the kayak tour, the meeting point will be at the rafting base in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. After receiving your equipment, you’ll go to a lake where you’ll be able to practice your newly learned techniques. After that, you and your guide will head to the tour’s entry point, and will come back to the base after your activity. All transfers are included in the offer.
