    Whether you're looking for a slow-paced or exciting rafting experience, we have the outing for you: our guides are experienced and will adapt to your needs!

    Climb aboard our boats, alone, as a family or with friends. Our goal is to make your experience an unforgettable one!
    Come and discover an exceptional area of the Haute Savoie: the Giffre and Tines Gorges. Our small but passionate team will be delighted to share their passion for sailing down the white water rapids with you.
    The activity will begin with a safety briefing, and some of the basics of sailing, to ensure your descent is a comfortable one.
    Our rafts are suitable for 8 people maximum, accompanied by a guide who will give you simple and clear guidance along the way. For those coming as a group, we can set off in several rafts! Row together, through the rapids, in the same direction! The more daring can stop off for jumps, swimming and challenges, under the watchful eye of our guides. This outing is sure to make a mark on your stay in the Yaute (Haute-Savoie in regional dialect)!

    For those who would like to discover another, more sporty river, we can also take you down the Dranse.

    Family rate applies from 4 people. Sliding scale pricing when several activities are booked. For groups contact us.

    This year, there are some specific sanitary measures in place, due to the health epidemic.

    Upon arrival:
    Respect the directions to avoid contact with too many people. Directions will be indicated and explained so everyone understands the organisation.
    Hand sanitiser is available for everyone in 4 different places throughout the premises.

    Changing rooms:
    Our changing rooms are inside a 40m2 chalet. There will be a specific area for each group, with 1m distance between groups, separated using furniture.
    Visitors will enter and exit through different doors and there's a central passage so that people can come and go without coming into contact with others.

    Wearing masks:
    Visitors should wear a mask while being equipped.
    Masks are compulsory for the return journey on the shuttle minibus.
    Each participant must therefore come equipped with a mask for the activity.
    Our team will also be obliged to wear masks when welcoming participants.

    Shuttle service:
    The shuttle buses can transport 7 people at the rear maximum (in accordance with recommendations from the health authorities).

    Activities:
    - Rafting: the boats will only be used by groups who made their bookings together families or friends travelling together). The number of people in each boat is limited to 6, to allow for social distancing with the guide.
    - Canoraft-airboat and miniraft: our semi-autonomous activities will be given priority, wherever possible. There will be a maximum of 8 participants per group with a guide. For these activities, social distancing rules can be respected.

    Equipment:
    Our equipment is individual. It will be completely disinfected after each use (wetsuit, socks, jacket, helmet, life jacket and oar). We will also disinfect the boats and the 'dry-box' after each use.

    Let's take good care of each other!
