This is a very special year and even if the Meet-up happened at a different time and place than originally scheduled, we are stoked that it was still possible!

It was the 3rd edition of the European Packrafting Meet-up, and it feels like it just keeps getting better and better every year :-) The 2020 Meet-up united around 50 participants from 10 nationalities at Salza river in Wildalpen, Austria, which turned out a to be a perfect location for running different workshops and clinics right in front of the campground.

Packrafts are highly technical crafts that are super stable, manoeuvrable, and durable – the perfect tool for the part time paddler.
