Come with me for an exciting adventure in Minakami, riding the rapids of Tonegawa river in a pack raft!
Packrafting consists on using a single inflatable raft that can easily fit inside your backpack. Unlike rafting, it doesn’t involve big cars to transport kayaks or rafts. Besides, you can choose your own starting point on the river.
This is a fun activity that allows you a great amount of freedom, as you can have full mobility and flexibility: you can go as far as you want and then take a train back home!
I propose to take you on a 1-day trip in Minakami, a town in the Gunma region, surrounded by beautiful mountains. It’s an ideal opportunity for beginners, as you will learn how to control and operate the rafts as well as actually rafting down a river.
We’ll be rafting on Tonegawa river or one of its small branches. Here, you can find sections with different difficulty levels. However, we’ll be traversing parts with a Class 2 or so difficulty, because the main objective is for you to learn how to control the rafts.
