Soak in the panoramic alpine views that line the Aare River as you drift down its pristine waters on a floating raft. Led by professional river guides, make your way from Thun to Bern atop a smooth, crystal-clear current, taking dip whenever you need to refresh.

Get picked up in Interlaken and ride to Thun, where you meet your friendly guides and review safety basics before setting off. As soon as you depart, the stunning beauty of the alpine terrain becomes apparent as you glide past nature-laden banks and majestic cliffs on impeccably blue waters. Though you receive a life jacket and paddle, the naturally swift flow of the river carries you by itself, so paddling is barely required. Your guide also takes care of navigating the light rapids along the way, leaving you to enjoy a safe and leisurely ride down the Aare.

If you get hot under the sun, just slip into the cool water and drift alongside your boat—though the Aare is fed by glacial meltwater, lakes at either end of the river can warm the current to a refreshing temperature. Pause to enjoy an optional barbecue beside the water, where you can take the time to explore the lush greenery on the banks. Get an unforgettable impression of Bern as you arrive in the historic city on its beautiful winding river.
