Equipment for our Packrafting trainings, tours and expeditions
As a provider of combined land-water ventures, we travel all year round with Packrafting and outdoor equipment under real and challenging conditions.
We therefore know that the right equipment is something very personal, individual and one of the factors for the joy of Packrafting. For this reason, we do not bind ourselves to specific manufacturers and offer you a range of Packrafting equipment that we have tested as suitable on our Trainings and Expeditions.
We are also in regular exchange with several equipment manufacturers, test new developments, give feedback and are partly involved in further development. We pass this experience on to our participants.
As a participant in our activities, you always have the opportunity to rent your Packrafting equipment from us. This is often the best option at the beginning and allows you to test different equipment options.
For the purchase of own equipment we advise our participants gladly which kind of equipment is optimally suitable for the intended purpose and which equipment parts are necessary. We offer participants of our trainings, tours and expeditions the purchase of special packrafts, paddles and dry suits in individual discussions and on request and sell used equipment from our fleet every now and then.
For the further and general sale of Packrafting and outdoor equipment we work together with the following equipment partners:
Recommended suppliers for Packrafting equipment
Our long-time partner, the Anfibio Packrafting Store, is more than just an online store for Packrafts. Marc and Sven have been instrumental in building the European Packrafting scene and continue to be part of the development of this fascinating way of being out and about. Both know first hand what a Packraft feels like on your back, in waves, storms and sunshine. They bring into every sale this experience, their history, their connection to Packrafting and their very own enthusiasm for the equipment and the adventures those small rafts make possible. In addition to the Packraft brands Anfibio, MRS and selected Kokopelli Packrafts, they also offer a very wide range of Packrafting accessories to purchase for Packrafting. Our recommendation for the general purchase of Packrafting equipment in Germany and Europe.
Alpacka Raft were part of Packrafting with their boats at the beginning, first in the USA and then all over the world. They have been Land Water Adventures' partners for many years with their innovative developments and improvements of the expedition-ready Packrafts.
Packraft Europe offer repairs, upgrades (e.g. add a CargoFly) and custom modifications for your Alpacka packraft. The owners Michaela and Seon are personally and with their family business committed to the protection and preservation of wild river landscapes, just like Land Water Adventures is; and they love packrafting the rivers of this world, often taking even their smallest family members along.
Kokopelli Packraft enlivens the Packraft menu with partly extraordinary designs and unconventional approaches - especially their self-bailers are pure fun in whitewater and popular with our participants. Founder Kelley and his companions are approachable outdoor enthusiasts from Colorado and enthusiastic Packrafters themselves.
