Activity description

Come and try canoe rafting, an original watersport activity with the pros of AN Rafting who will help you sail the magnificent Dranse river!

The Dranse is one of the nearest whitewater rivers from Geneva and Lausanne.

It's ideal to learn the basics of the activity and the canoe rafting specific techniques. This boat, basically an inflatable canoe, is particularly stable and fun for whitewater descents!

You will use the shuttles from the center to reach the pontoon. From there, you'll go down the rapids which are accessible for all levels and your itinerary brings you back to the center. The water is quite cool (between 7 and 8 degrees throughout the summer season), but no worries! You wear a wetsuit and the ambiant air is warm so your swim will be a relief!

Offer Description

You'll meet your instructor at the AN Rafting base and he will brief you on the activity.
You'll take the shuttle bus for a few minutes and reach the pontoon. There, you'll analyse the descent and the difficulties before getting onboard your canoe rafting.
You'll be the master of your boat but don't worry, your instructor is there at all time to help you pass the rapids and advise you on the paddling technics.
