The Isère, one of the most beautiful rivers in the Alps, invites you to experience an incredible descent, during which you'll ride the famous rapids of Aime – 'la salle à manger' [the Dining Room], 'la machine à couper le Jambon' [the meat slicer], and 'le Dessert' [dessert] – and discover the magnificent Gorges of Centron and the Roman Bridge. As a family, on your own or in a group, this river offers a range of thrills and unforgettable memories to suit all tastes and for all ages!

Anyone over the age of 8, who can swim, can enjoy the discovery course. The minimum age for all other rafting descents is 12. To ensure your safety, a state-certified guide will accompany you during the descent.
