Packrafting Tours in Leipzig

Packrafting on the channels of Leipzig

Sometimes pictures can tell more than words. Have a look at this video.

On this tour we discover the western part of the town for about 3 to 4 hours.

We start at the Sachsenbrücke ("Saxony bridge"), one of Leipzigs most attractive venues and paddle through the trendy areas of Schleußig, Plagwitz and Lindenau. We pass by creative centers, old industrial architecture and follow the paths which brought Leipzig the nickname "Hypezig".
Of course, a stop at one of the cafés in Plagwitz should not be missed. The way back we either paddle on the water or walk - just as you like.

Booking is available in April, May and June 2018! Check out the dates in the calendar.

About us


Chris Marx

packrafting guide, climber, traveller, teacher, media educationist

Packrafting Tours is an experiment. An idea.

With Packrafting Tours we wish people to take part and truly participate in our idea: Imagine yourself exploring, wherever your feet and water can carry you. Just set off to new shores, on new paths. Discover secrets off the beaten track. All you need is a backpack filled with a few essentials and a tiny, lightweight inflatable. Nothing else.

Our Idea is for you to enjoy every single moment and to be wholly present. To be outdoors and find tranquility. To experience this certain slowness which is really rare in everyday life.

Packrafting Tours is an idea. And much more: living.

Inga & Chris
