The INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION (IRF) is about bringing the world of rafting together, whether it is competing at the World Championship level or being part of a local grassroots event. Or it could be that once-in-a-lifetime experience of going on a commercial raft trip locally or around the world, whether it be for 1 hour or 16 days. The IRF is in the forefront of raft safety worldwide. Through our various courses and certifications, we can ensure a global standard of guides while continually evolving raft techniques to keep everyone safer. We are also about the environment and conserving the rivers we raft. It’s about educating others to ensure the sustainability of our rivers.
