    The canoe-raft is an inflatable boat for two people in which you can navigate our rivers. You will therefore embark in pairs, with the guide at your side.
    A briefing before departure will allow you to acquire the skills required to perform the descent.
    During the course, the guide will guide you on the route to take in order to navigate safely.

    The section through the Gorges de Tines is full of thrills and breathtaking scenery!

    Closer to the water and with a more aerodynamic shape than the raft, the canoe-raft lets you feel the river, its twists and its strength!
    Let yourself be tempted and come and discover the Giffre's rapids as you have never seen them before!

    This route is recommended for participants who already have experience in white water navigation.

    For adventurers who like a challenge and who have no experience yet, we offer a discovery course. On this route, we start just after the gorges (the most technical section of the river). This allows you to get the hang of the navigation techniques and sensations offered by this boat!


    So, what are your waiting for? Experience the adventure, share our passion and dare to challenge the Giffre!

      Special measures have been adopted this year due to the health situation.

      Base:
      A one-way system has been created for visitors, to avoid meeting others. It will be displayed and explained so that everyone can understand the organisation.
      Hydroalcoholic gel will be available to everyone at 4 points in our premises.

      Cloakrooms/changing rooms:
      Our cloakroom is a 40 m2 chalet. Each group will be allocated a section, which respects a minimum distance of 1m between each group, indicated using furniture.
      A separate entrance and exit, as well as a central aisle will allow everyone to enter and leave without meeting others.

      Masks:
      We invite each holidaymaker to wear a mask as the equipment is allocated.
      Masks are compulsory on the return shuttle bus.
      Each participant will therefore be asked to bring a mask for the activity.
      Our reception staff will also wear masks.

      Shuttle Buses :
      The number of places in the shuttles will be limited to 7 people in the back (according to recommendations by the health authorities).

      Activities:
      • Rafting: only pre-established groups (families or friends travelling together) will be accepted. The number of people in the boats will be limited to 6, allowing a physical distance from the guide.
      • Inflatable canoe and miniraft: our semi-independent activities will be encouraged, as much as possible. Groups will be limited to 8 participants maximum per guide. In these activities, social distance guidelines can be respected.

      Material:
      Our equipment is individual. It be fully disinfected after each use (coveralls, socks, jacket, helmet, life jacket and paddle). We will also disinfect the boats and 'locker box' at each rotation.

      Let's look after each other!
