Is it possible to undertake a unique adventure that starts outside your own front door? That was the question that three friends asked themselves. To find out, they hike through the Alps and then take a raft downstream back home under their own steam. This includes hauling their rafts over the mountain! 

This is an entertaining documentary about an original and multifaceted adventure in the mountains. After climbing several Alpine peaks of approximately 2,500 meters, the happy-go-lucky threesome continue their journey down the river Lech with boats (for the experts: whitewater level 3). 

Their journey looks spontaneous, yet the adventure has been well-thought-out and planned. 

The film makes you sit up and think: I can do that too! It doesn’t have to be a trek in the Himalaya: there are plenty of other ways to your own special adventure.
