What is rafting ?


Rafting  comes to us initially from the territories of the Great American West and means the action of crossing or descending a river in a raft.

First of all attached to the utilitarian practices of trappers or explorers to go down rivers and rapids .

It became a recreational activity , the first traces of which were found in 1934 in the United States and arrived in France in the 1980s, to experience the first commercial services in 1984.

A raft is an  unsinkable, self-emptying, paddle-operated boat led by a qualified guide . Both playful and sporty, it allows a great moment of conviviality!

Whether you are an experienced athlete looking for thrills, a family wishing to share a moment of conviviality, or whether you want to introduce your toddler to navigation...
