At Packraft Travel you book a 3-day independent Packraft and Bikeraft adventure 
in the breathtaking nature of Eifel National Park in Germany.

🥾🚴  Hike, Bike, Paddle & Sleep  🚣‍♂️🏕️


Packrafting is a relatively new sport. A hybrid between backpacking and rafting that allows you to experience unspoilt nature at its finest. A packraft is a light weight inflatable boat that fits into a backpack. Perfect for crossing lakes, rivers and streams as part of a longer route on foot or bike. Whenever your hiking trail gets interrupted by water, simply fill the packraft with air and continue the adventure by packraft.


Hiking, biking or paddling… Which do you prefer? Good news, at Packraft Travel you don’t have to choose. We are the first in Germany to combine packrafting and bikerafting in our 3-Day Trail. Discover the beautiful green hills and clear lakes of Eifel National Park on foot, by raft and by bike. The bike just goes along on the raft!

You follow the trail completely independently, in peace and quiet, so you recharge completely. That is the premise of our packraft adventures! 

We provide you with the most beautiful routes and a complete packraft equipment, so you can enjoy a relaxing adventure.

Practical info


Packraft trails are not guided. Prefer not to go alone? Gather your own travelling party (partner, friends, family, colleagues) to experience the adventure together.


Arrival between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. at basecamp for the start of your trail. From 3 p.m. you can check in to your accommodation. Check-out until 10 a.m. on the last day of your stay.

Did you book an extra night prior to your trail? Then check-in is possible between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.


On the first day of your trail, our ranger will start at 9.30 a.m. with the briefing about the route and your equipment. From 10 a.m. you can set out on your own.

On days 2 and 3 of your trail you can decide the start time of the trail. So start your day with breakfast at your own pace.

The last day of your trail we expect you back at basecamp between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Take time to experience the adventure at your own pace!


Packraft Travel offers multiple trails for different levels of fitness and experience. So pretty much everyone with good physical health can successfully complete our trails. Also, you get plenty of time to rest, take a break and enjoy the stunning views.

We welcome mostly couples, small groups of friends, colleagues and single travelers aged 20 to 45. The minimum age for our trails is 18 years old.

Absolutely. You are provided with clear instructions on the route and your gear by one of our rangers and you decide yourself how many breaks you take.

When you get down by the water you easily inflate the packraft with the special inflation bag. You scoop air into the inflation bag, similar to a fat boy air chair, and press the air into the raft. It should take you around 5 to 6 full inflation bags to fully inflate your packraft. After paddling through gorgeous scenery, you get back on land, deflate the packraft, roll it up and put it back in your backpack.

No. What makes our concept so much fun is that you will set out independently with all the equipment you need for a unique adventure. 

Follow the trail alone, with your partner, friend(s), colleagues or other companionship.

100%. We’ve carefully chosen safe routes and provide you with safety instructions and high-end packrafting gear.

Should you have any questions during the route, our rangers are available for you by phone at all times!

Select one of the packs above to start booking your 1, 2 or 3-day adventure. You will be taking through an easy booking system in just a few steps.

You can book for up to 10 people at a time. Would you like to book for more people? You can! Send an e-mail to [email protected] or call +31(0)85-0806333.

Our packrafts are suitable for 1 person. The packraft is big enough to comfortably fit yourself, your backpack and bike.

You start your day with instructions from one of our rangers in The Dome where we explain the route and your equipment. Then you’re good to go! You go out with just your backpack, including packraft, paddles, food, water and some spare clothes. All your other belongings stay in your tent at basecamp. 

You start with a hike or bike ride of a few kilometers. Once you get down by the river you inflate your packraft and continue your trail by water. Make sure to stop in time to enjoy a nice view and a well-deserved lunch. Once back in basecamp you can enjoy a hot shower, dinner and a drink by the campfire.

Of course! Select ‘1-day trail’ to book your packrafting trip for a day.

Packrafting originates from Alaska where packrafts are mostly used to cross large bodies of water in the wilderness during hikes or bike routes.

Bikerafting is a combination of biking and packrafting. You simple strap your bike to your raft when continuing by water. This gives you the ability to travel longer routes. Select the ‘3-day trail’ to enjoy 2 days of packrafting and 1 day of bikerafting.

No, you will be spending the night at our basecamp. Basecamp is the starting and ending point of all trails. 

You can choose to bring your own tent and sleeping gear or stay in one of our brand new tents at basecamp. We have Basic tents and luxury Glamping tents available.

As little as possible. 😉 A few weeks before your arrival, we’ll email you a handy packing list. Some essential items are:

  • good hiking shoes
  • comfortable clothing
  • bottle/bag for water
  • sunscreen
  • sunglasses
  • a good mood 😀

You will carrying just your waterproof backpack including your packraft and paddles (which together weigh about 4.5 kg), your food, water and spare clothes. In total, your backpack will weigh about 6.5 kg.

Whatever you prefer! We make sure your accommodation and packraft equipment is ready to go.

Traveling by car?
Our basecamp is very easily accessible by car. Park your car for free and conveniently next to basecamp. We will hold a spot for you!

Traveling by train?
Great! You are doing good for nature. By train you can travel to Heimbach train station. From there it is only a 15-minute walk to our basecamp.

Traveling by airplane?
Our basecamp is about 1 hour’s drive from Keulen-Bonn Airport and Maastricht-Aachen Airport. Need an airport transfer? Then we can recommend a train ride towards Heimbach train station. Prefer to go by car? Take a taxi or rent a car at the airport.

I got to join the pilot 'packrafting & bikerafting in the Eifel' 🛶🥾🚲 Super organised! The routes were very nice and surprising. For beginners, like me, it was very doable. In spring/summer, the surroundings will only be more beautiful! The glamping tents were very nice (and big!). Super nice beds, nice towels and a handy table with chairs. Also top that there are crockery and a cooler in the tent. In short, a relaxed stay! The parking at the basecamp was also convenient. Thanks guys!

What an experience to be part of the pilot group in the Eifel. This was an adventure to remember. Beautiful nature, a good combination of being outdoors and then recovering in luxury in a beautiful glamping tent. And everything fantastically organised, so we could really relax and have the feeling of an active holiday. We enjoyed ourselves and will definitely come again!

I'm a fan! Packraft Travel invited me and my friend to participate in the pilot in Germany (Eifel). I didn't know what to expect, but I found it really FANTASTIC! A super cool way to be active while enjoying nature in a relaxed way. Nothing stops you from continuing your trail over land AND water. Inflating the packraft with the air bag was very easy! We were chilling out on the water in no time. We were passing through Germany by motorbike and found this a really fun way to explore the Eifel. We will come again in May to try out the 3-day trail with bikeraften, already looking forward to it! 😃

Highly recommended for anyone who loves nature and adventure! During the very first pilot in the Eifel, I most enjoyed the routes across the water with the packraft. Truly a sense of freedom! The communication beforehand and on site with the rangers was really top notch. Thank you!

We were the lucky ones to be part of the pilot in the Eifel. What beautiful routes! Lovely hiking, cycling and paddling on the water. Packrafting was new to us. We found it a great way to discover the area independently in peace and quiet. The 3-day trail is highly recommended! You then go packrafting for 2 days and bikeraften for 1 day. We also had the pleasure of spending the night in a brand new Glamping Tent. The tent was fully equipped. Lovely beds and a nice fresh breakfast in the morning. The presence and cooler was also very handy. The sanitary facilities on the campsite were very clean. We will definitely book again this spring!
