Inspired by the famous raft “Kon-Tiki” by Thor Heyerdahl’s raft, this raft is half this size. Be believe that the water raft is indisputably unique. The raft is 8 meters in length and 3 meters in width, it offers a cabin that comfortably sleeps two people. The raft has a large deck outside with a seating area where you can eat, sunbathe and enjoy being at the water’s edge. This little house on the water offers all the amenities for a pleasant stay with us. The raft is moveable and you are able to weigh anchor elsewhere on the river. Extremely smooth waters direct your attention from your daily routine and provides you the opportunity to put your worries overboard.

If you haven’t ordered any linen when booking then you must bring under sheets, pillowcases and a duvet or sleeping bag!

If you want to enjoy the views, the quietness of the area, the sunset and the water sit outside on the deck available with oak table and chairs. A refrigerator is provided centrally on the site.
