At this point, a huge Thanks to all our regulars that have been with us over all these years 🙂 …. see’ya on the river!
Running one of the most exciting white-water rivers in Europe demands attention to detail and safety. At Engadin Adventure safety is present at every level of our operation. Each year we undergo a safety audit that is carried on behalf of Safety in Adventures foundation of Switzerland by the SGS. Passing these audits confirms that we follow industry best practice standards and operate in accordance legal statutes as laid out by Swiss Federal Law.
Engadin Adventure uses high quality international rafting equipment from recognized white-water outfitters and all of our guests are fitted out with neoprene wetsuits, neoprene shoes, jackets, white-water rafting buoyancy aids and helmets before we go on the river.

Will I get wet?
Yes…we just can’t say how wet.
What happens if I fall in the water?
Then you are really going to get wet….however after the safety talk and the training that you have had at the beginning of the trip you will know what to do…assume the position…the white-water floating position.
How many people fit onto a raft?
Our Incept white-water rafts take a maximum of 7 paddlers plus the guide. This number may change due to changes in river conditions. It may be that we have to divide some groups up because of this. Sorry….but safety comes first.
Do rafting trips get cancelled because of bad weather?
Seldom…we give our guests high quality wetsuits, booties and jackets that protect against the elements; you are going to get wet anyway so you may as well go rafting when it rains. However extended periods of rain may cause the river to rise and force us to change planned trips…if you have any questions you can call us at +41 81 861 14 19
