Activity description

Get away for an aquatic moment in the wilderness and choose between rafting for groups or mini-rafting for sensations!

Rafting is an inflatable boat for 4 to 8 people, particularly suited for beginners. Practicing in a group makes it really more fun and the younger ones can experience their first sensations on the water safely. Rafting is excellent for teamwork, whether you ride the rapids gently or in sport mode!

The mini-rafting is a perfect mix between rafting and canoe-rafting. It is a rather sporty craft that accomodates 3 or 4 people with your instructor in another boat to guide you. You are lighter, faster and it's all the more fun!

You will sail on the Giffre river in Haute Savoie, an easy river with passages for all levels! You will evolve in a splendid environment in the gorges of Tines!

Several courses are possible depending on the water levels, from Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval to Samoëns or from under the Gorges des Tines to Morillon.

You'll have a 1.5 hour descent of 10 kilometres. Those of you who are rather adventurous can enjoy a jump proposed to you at the exit of the Gorges des Tines!
