Welcome to the Canadian Packraft Rendezvous! We are thrilled to have an annual event dedicated to the packrafting community in Canada. The 2019 Rendezvous will be held, once again, in beautiful Mount Robson provincial park, British Columbia, from Friday June 28 to Tuesday July 2, 2019

The rivers should be high and flowing fast at this time of year, so it should be a lot of fun!

In its inaugural year, the 2018 Packraft Roundup was a casual gathering of packraft enthusiasts. The 2019 Rendezvous will be similar and we therefore ask that participants be over 18 years old (unless with a parent or guardian) and have some prior packrafting or whitewater experience as there will be no course or professional guiding at the Rendezvous.

All participants are expected to be familiar with basic whitewater rescue, self-rescue and paddling techniques. Participants will be limited to 50. Online registration will be available until June 25th or when we hit 50 registered participants.

Since the organizers are all volunteers and want to have a fun weekend too, we would like for every participant to come with a “ready-to-help” mindset. We see this event as a fun way to meet other like-minded packrafters and outdoor-enthusiasts and as a basis to plan more trips and gatherings in the future.

See you in Mount Robson Provincial Park in June!
