That's special about rafting in Ilanz
“Swiss Grand Canyon” - that’s the unofficial yet fitting name of the stretch where the white water rafting tours take place. In 1977 - and thus even before the Matterhorn - this section of the valley was declared national heritage. On the tour, you pass bizarre rock formations and witness the impressive impact the Upper Rhine has had on the landscape in the last millennia. On the “Rafting Day-Tour for Young and Old” you have the unique opportunity to enjoy a hearty Barbecue on the riverbank amidst this truly charming scenery.
