The rafting was great! After the flood on the Inn, CanKick was very concerned about safety. Because of this, the tour has been postponed a few times. I thought it was great! One thing I didn't find so great was the strenuous way of carrying the boat to the Inn. But everything else was great!

We found the rafting tour very nice. Many thanks to our guide (Bezi) who created a great atmosphere on the tour and also gave us a lot of information about rafting. We would recommend the tour and will definitely come back for an advanced rafting tour.

Great fun! The rapids were perfect for me and my two kids, the guide was entertaining, really beautiful stretch of the river. Would highly recommend this activity with CanKick.

It was a lot of fun and Peter was a great guide. Thank you very much and see you soon.

fantastic!! Marco, our guide was great and we had a lot of fun
