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

It became a recreational activity, the first traces of this 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 wanting to introduce your toddler to navigation...
