Switzerland kayaking

Buzzards,

I am heading to Switzerland for the last two weeks of June and am wondering if anyone knows what kind of whitewater kayaking might be available at that time. Any places to check out or people/guides to contact?

Thanks,

Mark

Yes look up Toro, aka Thomas Rogenmoser, I can't remember if he just runs a rafting company there or does guiding as well but he will know what's going on. Super nice guy and solid paddler.

extremely dependent on where in Switzerland you are -- it's a tiny country but super-mountaineous in parts and therefore hard to cross, except when it's not. A whole lot of Italian, French, German, and Austrian rivers might be in play depending on which side of the Alps you're on, or if you're actually in the flatter parts. Once you're in the Schengen Zone, crossing borders is not that big a deal, just be careful to know how much value in consumer goods, or rather, how little, you're allowed to bring into Switzerland

The 4-paddlers map might be just one place to start to give you an idea of what's out there: Flussführer Flusskarte Paddelregionen Wildwasser - Paddeln, Kanu, Kajak -

I had a memorable grand trip with a bunch of awesome Swiss kayakers from Versam. It blew my mind how well paid & well respected white water professionals are in Switzerland. The owners were Markus & Kazi & all their guides were super fun. Good luck translating their website tho
