Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin with a pickup from one of our designated meeting points. Take the 30-minute journey to the rafting base in the Swiss countryside. Change into your safety gear as your guide details the plan for the day, then head to the banks of the Simme River.

    Listen to a comprehensive safety briefing from your guide, then carry your raft to the river’s edge and hop aboard. A gentle waterway with class II and III rapids to enjoy, the Simme River is perfect for adventurous families and seasoned rafting enthusiasts alike, with plenty of choppy waves and swirling eddies to navigate.

    During your 2-hour rafting trip, paddle with the flow of the Simme River on its journey beneath the soaring peaks of the Swiss Alps to Därstetten and enjoy spectacular views along the way.

    Jump out of your raft on arrival in Därstetten then board your vehicle for the return journey to the rafting base in Böltigen. Change back into your day clothes and enjoy a refreshing drink. Travel back to your drop off location, where your rafting experience will come to an end.

    Please note: Strong swimming ability is recommended, but not essential.

    It was such a trill coming down the river. So much fun getting wet, paddling, following instructions and having a laugh with the others in the raft. Fun for all ages.

    The Simme White Water Rafting trip is perfect for children. A great beginners experience for them with guides that have good experience on the river. We were a family with 14, 12 and 10 year olds and everyone loved it
