Welcome to Swiss Outdoor Training Center!

We are a training center for white water based outdoor sports and swiftwater rescue operating from Interlaken, Switzerland, running courses and workshops all across the country. We are not only offering river rafting and canyoning courses to prepare guides for the national SOA assessments, but also the internationally recognised Rescue3™ courses and white water swimming training for new and experienced guides, rescue squads, kajakers and canyoners. Most of our courses can easily be built-in external training like company specific guide training or rescue courses.

Our Goal

The main goal behind the idea of a national outdoor training center is to reach and maintain a high level of SAFETY IN SWIFT-, FLOOD- AND WHITE WATER through extended and repetitive education! To get there, we are trying to provide a high level of river rafting, canyoning and river rescue training on one side and putting a lot of effort in to collect and record knowledge in these very disciplines. A constant progression of contents and rescue techniques and with it the continuous access to current knowledge is possible only in cooperation with other associations. Thats why we are not only well integrated in an international network of professional guides and leading instructors, but also are in constant contact with national and international organisations.

Public Awareness and Safety

Furthermore, we would also like to be proactive and raise the general awareness (especially with schools, military and rescue units) regarding the hazards and dangers in swift- and white water. Courses for this matter can be found under "Swift- and white water safety" and "Rescue 3", where you will find a range of choices from basic awareness to specialised training.

Our courses usually run with a minimal number of 3 (canyoning)/ 4 (Rescue3)/ 5 (rafting) participants. We do oblige to operate under a strict safety concept regarding weather and other external factors. Therefore we do maintain the rights to cancel and abort whole courses or parts of it at any time. The advertised prices for the courses do not include food, transport and accommodation.
