Activity description

On this thrilling whitewater adventure, you and your team will conquer the river Dranse in the Chablais Alps between France and Switzerland. The name Dranse comes from the Celtic language and means "torrent" – so be prepared for an action-packed day on the river with adrenaline guarantee!

But first, you are going to meet your personal guide for this tour at the meeting point at the port in Le Bouveret. Here you will be introduced to the activity and you will be briefed on the safety instructions. In Switzerland, rafters need to wear a helmet and life jacket which will be provided by the guide. Safety first!

Once you are ready to go, you will drive to the starting point which takes approximately 45 minutes by car. Now it's time to get serious! Starting in Pont de la Douceur, you will spend the next 1 and a half hours on the river and master descents and rapids from range 2 to 3.

At the end of the tour, you will be returned to the starting point.
