River Rafting in der Rheinschlucht

River rafting and water sports

Gliding through the Rhine Gorge on the Vorderrhein is a fascinating experience. Rapids alternate with calmer sections of the river. However, the landscape in the Rhine Gorge is breathtaking throughout. The section runs between Ilanz and Versam to Reichenau and is one of the most beautiful stretches in Switzerland. Various providers offer tours with rafting boats, canoes and canadians, pack rafts, funyaks and hydrospeeding.
