Embark on an unforgettable raft adventure down the Aare

On the River Aare, you are the captain. Equipped with a raft, lifejacket, paddle and clothing transport bag, you and your friends can set out to paddle from Utigen near Thun to Bern. All the equipment you need can be rented from "Aareschlauchboot" in Utigen. This is an experience with a high fun factor guaranteed.

Rent a raft and paddle with a lifejacket, and you are ready for a memorable adventure on the Aare. Rent high quality equipment from "Aareschlauchboot" in Uttigen, and be the captain of the river. Your tour starts at the train station Uttigen (3 min vom Thun) and ends at the Eichholz campsite in Bern. For 23 km, the Aare winds through the natural beauty of the Bernese Oberland. A rafting tour, which takes approx. three hours (depending on the water level), guarantees fun and excitement.

Paddle the invigorating waters of the Aare with friends, family members, work colleagues or fellow club members. It is well worth allowing enough time to make the absolute most of a summer’s day. Along the way you can go ashore at various tranquil spots for a barbecue or picnic – or take a cooling dip in the river. For the whole day, you enjoy sheer freedom and independence. On request, an experienced guide will accompany your tour of discovery. Ask the provider directly about the options.
