Rafting

Sunday, 16th August 2020 at 11am - 2pm

Location: Uttingen railway station

Uttigen to Bern - Rafting Trip with BBQ Afterwards

Note that this event is only suitable for confident types with a sense of adventure. Theymust all be competent swimmers, You are also very likely to get at least a little wet from splashes, even if you don`t jump off the boat for a swim! The river is relatively fast flowing and cool and there are several rapids and many bridges with pillars to navigate through.

Start Point: Uttingen railway station car park, aim to hit the water by 11:00
End Point: Eichholz BBQ area, Bern, in the vicinity of the volleyball court around 14:00


What to bring: Swimming clothes, towel, something to change into (dry clothes) and a swim bag is recommended to keep your stuff dry! Refreshments for the trip and the BBQ afterwards. Lifejackets are optional.

Boats: If you have a boat then please bring it with you and let us know how many free seats there are. If you don`t have your own boat, please organise a space on another boat, or you can hire a boat from one of several oparators who oparate from Uttingen station (it is advised to do this in advance).

Transport: If you are driving, let us know if you can help transport people, boats and BBQ stuff. Otherwise join the front carriage of the 10:16 S1 train from Bern to Uttingen, arriving 10:39.

The Rafting will be followed by a BBQ at Eichholz. For this we have a separate event.
