White Water Rafting

The mountain rivers provide a wonderful playground in summer with stunning scenery all around. There's a range of great white water sports available from beginners to advanced, children and adults. Read on if you fancy getting your hair wet...

A summertime favourite, white water rafting is something we'd recommend everyone should try whilst in the alps in Summer. The rafts take up to 7 people plus your guide, and our local river is called La Dranse. You enter the river just outside Morzine, for the 7 kms (beginner) or 12 kms (advanced) paddle downstream towards Thonon and Lake Geneva.

The qualified guides will provide you with everything you need - wet-suit, buoyancy aid, helmet and paddle! White water rafting is available for all ages, and makes a great family day out. They have several rafts so if you are a large group you can still go down the river together.

Prices and timings:

A beginner's trip takes a half day and costs 38 euros per person. It's available to all ages.
