White Water Rafting & Canyoning
Rafting is a 'white knuckle ride' and with the River Arve running through the centre of Chamonix you don't have to go far! Further afield, near Morzine, is the exhilarating River Dranse and over in Italy the formidable Dora Baltea. Only for those wanting a real adrenaline rush! This is a popular activity with our summer Corporate groups.
Hydrospeeding is an extreme form of surfing or white water swimming and is offered by a number of the rafting companies. Decked out in thick, reinforced wetsuits, crash helmets, flippers and board, it is the perfect way to harness the true power of the river!
Combining climbing, abseiling, swimming and diving, canyoning is a true dare-devil experience. Fully equipped with wet suit, helmet, harness and boots, canyoning takes you through the river's course with exciting water slides into deep pools. From gorge walking to caving, canyoning covers a wide range of obstacles with the common theme of getting wet and having fun.
Easily the best place to view a picturesque mountain stream...in it.
