Your entry into the adventure of multiday packrafting: travel independently with backpack and packraft.

In this course we teach the basics of what packrafts were created for: Being independently on the road with a lightweight boat. Unlike the four-day Multiday courses, however, this course requires no prior experience in camping, outdoor living, or food preparation on the road.
