IRON RAFT was born out of the urge to explore the world and experience adventure on a budget.

We are a small, independent, UK business dedicated to making packrafting in the UK affordable for everyone.

Originally interested in bicycle touring for it’s small budget travel abilities and versatility to go almost anywhere, we first stumbled upon these awesome little boats around 2014. (Yes we are quite new to the scene!)

For us, a packraft was the perfect partner for the touring bike. A must have for adventurers. And essential for anyone wanting to explore real wilderness independently.

The only downside with packrafting in the UK  is the price.

With no UK based manufacturers and almost all commercial brands priced between £500 and £800 plus shipping and often import tax on top, packrafts are certainly not cheap.

Even if you can find the money to purchase one, the chances of having a buddy with you to share the adventure are slim.

IRON RAFT wants to make packrafting affordable for everyone. By supplying customers with high quality material and the knowledge to build your own homemade packraft, we aim to give everybody the chance to experience what packrafting can offer.
