The Annual Packrafting Meet-up for Europe was created as a way for the European and International packrafting community to come together to share their passion for the sport. To share safety knowledge and to help protect the rivers we all love. It is organized and run by packrafters, for packrafters and was never intended to be a commercial event. That said, many of the people involved including the organizers own and run packrafting businesses, without their time and support the event simply would not be possible.
The event is organized and run on a volunteer basis, 100% of all monies raised are donated to help support the NGO’s fighting to protect Europe’s Rivers. The “Save the Blue Heart of Europe” campaign, Balkan River Defence, and River Film Fest EU.
The main organisers for the event are Seon and Michaela Crockford-Laserer who own and run Packraft Europe.
