Packrafting in Venice

Packrafting in the secret channels of Venice

Sometimes pictures can tell more than words. Have a look at these Venice Impressions.

Discovering the lagoon city works best from the water side. In contradiction to a touristic gondola ride we paddel off the beaten track.
In about 3 hours we explore the secrets of Venice and understand how the "Serenissima" was built. Furthermore we gain some insight which would normally be impossible. Guaranteed!The tour passes through San Polo and ends in the jewish quarter. There on the Campo di Ghetto Nuevo we enjoy a sweet little reward for our efforts: kosher pastry.

Ask for booking dates!

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
