The International Rafting Federation (IRF) is recognised as the legitimate world governing body for rafting. Since 1997, we assist the global rafting community – sport, recreational, commercial, environmental and sustainability organisations – to advance all avenues and concerns of rafting.

We are a non-profit, democratic, global affiliation of national federations and sporting entities. Together we are responsible for fostering fair, credible and legitimate international rafting competition at all levels, and leading in raft guide standards the world over.
