White water swim with Hydrospeed Ubaye

HYDROSPEED - Presentation of this whitewater swimming activity


What is hydrospeed ?

Hydrospeed or white water swimming is practiced lying on a foam float called hydrospeed. Equipped with a thick wetsuit, you propel and orient yourself with the help of fins. The guide who will accompany you on the water will teach you how to surf your first waves!

Two courses are possible to adapt to your desires. The descents represent approximately 10 km for 1h30 of navigation and a total of 2h30 for all the activity (to equip yourself : wetsuit & neoprene shoe, helmet and vest provided).

What better way to get into the heart of the action than diving directly into the torrent? Swimming in a mountain torrent is not usual… Memories guaranteed!
