Switzerland: White Water Rafting

A summer and winter sports paradise

Switzerland White Water Rafting

Offering thrills to tourists is nothing new in Interlaken and the surrounding Jungfrau District of the Bernese Oberland, where intrepid visitors have been entertained with mountain-climbing, alpine touring, and other challenging pursuits for more than a century.

The rafting on the Lutschine River is great and there are more canyons than you’ll know what to do with. The 12.5-mile stretch of the Rhein from Ilanz to Reichenau sits in a gorge known as Switzerland's Grand Canyon. The Class III-IV rapids are among the country's best. Lütchine is considered the top whitewater river in Swizterland. The Class III-IV rapids near adventure capital Interlaken are short, and three hours in the water is probably enough.
