Our rafting tours are some of our best rainy day activities, however they can still be affected by weather conditions and water levels. It is difficult to predict exactly how a trip will be impacted until the day of the activity, and we carefully monitor conditions to stay within our safety limits.

Please make sure we have good contact information for you so we can reach out if your trip is changed or cancelled due to poor conditions. If you have not heard from us, it means we are still planning to run your trip as scheduled, or we have not yet made a final decision based on the forecast.

If we are not able to run your trip, we will try to accommodate you on another date, another activity, or we will issue you a full refund.

For detailed advice on how to prepare for (and enjoy!) bad weather days in Interlaken, check out our weather blog 

Cancellation requests must be made at least 48 hours before trip time to be eligible for a refund. For more details regarding our cancellation policy, please see our full Terms and Conditions
