Our Story

How everything started

Our CEO and Co-Founder, Mariana, grew up in Lima-Peru and was not a big outdorsy person while growing up. When she moved to Colorado in 2015, she immediately fell in love with the outdoors. But she always wondered, “why aren’t there more people like me out there?”.

In terms of ethnicities, by 2046, people of color will be the majority of the population of the United States. Yet, we represent less than 15% of outdoor enthusiasts.

What we do

Thus, Alluvia Packraft was born! We make lightweight, packable, inflatable boats for adventurous explorers who want to include water sports to their outdoor activities.


What is packrafting?

Packrafts are like inflatable kayaks that can be packed small enough to fit in your backpack, making them easy to store and transport.

You can take them everywhere with you. From a short trip through town and floating on that alpine lake you’ve always wanted to go, to backpacking, car camping, fishing, canyoneering and more!

Why we do it

3% of our profits will go towards making the outdoors a more inclusive, diverse, and safe space for everyone.

We are not here to only write a check down, we want to take the extra step and be involved while allocating our resources and efforts.

We want to become the outdoor exploration company that provides you with the gear to reduce the barriers of entry so we can all enjoy being outside in any way that we love.
