Fancy some fresh air?  
Breath-taking landscapes in the heart of the Haute-Savoie region, between Sixt and Samoëns...  

The river inspires, the river intrigues… It brings together young and old!  
A place to marvel, observe, discuss, bathe… Who doesn’t have a great memory to share from the water’s edge?  
It’s never a bad time to go for a walk along riverside paths… But have you ever noticed those inflatable boats which float along it’s bed? Thanks to these, you can discover the river’s secrets by entering wild areas reserved for those with the will to go and find them!  
Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval and Samoëns will change your outlook if you decide to take to the Giffre...  
Thonon will surprise you if you embark upon the Dranse de Morzine!  
Let yourself be guided… Hire a raft, a mini-raft, a air boat or a cano-raft with David and Bastien (our guides) and dare to adventure! There is something for everyone: Sporty or simply curious, we adapt to your desires and will be able to advise you on the choice that suits you best! Alone, with family or friends, this outing will give you the chance to strengthen bonds and create new ones: you will have to paddle together, in the same direction! An ideal experience for summer camp or businesses looking to create cohesion and a group dynamic. For the most adventurous and active, we offer you a descent rich in sensations and emotions! David and Bastien will take you through the rapids of the Giffre or the Dranse and will make you take exhilarating routes. Your challenge: stand up in the raft, swim, climb on the rocks, jump in… Adrenaline, concentration, laughs, and maybe a bit of muscle stiffness to top it all off!

We are located 40 minutes from Les Gets, 50 minutes from Morzine and 1 hour 20 minutes from Annecy via the motorway to Cluses. The river is worth the detour! You won’t be disappointed!  
See you soon!  

Captain of the ship, this Breton has made a career out of his passion!  
Since the age of 8, he has kayaked through different rivers to reach Haute-Savoie ! We expect the temperature of our rivers reminds him of the coldness of the channel!  
He moved to Haute-Savoie four years ago and, seduced by the region, he expects to stay here! Meanwhile, his boat grew…  
Aim: to help others experience adventure! From the 2-person canoë-raft to the 8-person raft, David will impart on you his passion for navigation and white water in a magnificent setting! His motto: have fun in complete safety!  
He will put his knowledge of the river at your service to ensure you an exceptional descent!

Bastien will also sail at your side!  
You may have already come across him on the winter ski-slopes: he’s in the red uniform teaching you to ski!  
As you may have realised, this sports-fanatic doesn’t keep his passions to himself! Nothing beats the mountains, and he hopes to help you discover this!  
Originally from Ventron in the Vosges, in Haute-Savoie he has found the perfect combination to align his passions for gliding, both on water and on snow.  
You will love his smile and gentleness : Bastien will guide you along the Giffre for an unforgettable descent!
Whilst this sports-fanatic prefers keeping his feet dry, he doesn’t shy away from hikes, mountain biking or skiing!  
His greatest pleasure: helping you to have an exceptional holiday. In the winter he prepares your skis and, in the summer, alongside us, he leads you safely on an adventure!  
He is also the one who you will speak to on the phone when making reservations! You will also find him in the base ensuring the upkeep of the equipment in order to offer you optimum conditions for our activities!  
We are waiting for you! Let yourself be guided!

The Raft is an inflatable boat seating up to 8 people. It is designed for hurtling down rapids in complete safety, with a guide behind you who gives instructions and directions. The crew play a key role and follow the guide’s directions, it requires teamwork, and everyone learns to move forwards together: as if one single person!
The cano-raft is a small 2-person boat. It hugs the waves allowing for increased sensation, and for you to be more daring. You have more independence, after the guide has given an explanation at the base, you will be able to choose the direction and propulsion of the boat as a team to avoid obstacles and best take on the rapids.
The little brother of the raft holds a maximum 4 people, you paddle independantly, and the guide will be in a canoe to show you the routes and help you to master the mini-raft.
Great adventurers, you who seek out sporting challenges and wish to take the river on head-to-head… This activity is for you!  
The air-boat is a boat which most closely resembles a kayak. It will open you up to a world of sensations. It offers you stability and speed of manoeuvre: this boat adapts to any water conditions of the river!  
You are alone on the boat and benefit from the advice of a guide who will be at your side.  
It is easy to manage, and you will discover the dizzying rapids of Gorges de Tines, followed by the tranquillity of the calmer waters of the Vallon plains. A fun and exciting boat!
For those who perhaps don’t have sea legs and prefer taking trips in trainers...  
Canyoning is the sport for you!  
A top rope sport, you will experience sensations mixing climbing and water rambling.  
On foot, we will descend the riverbed – this will be our playing field! Erosion has created slides, jumps and basins for us, reflecting our mountain.  
Come and enjoy yourself with us and discover the Giffre valley in all its glory.  
The 3 routes we offer allow you to find what you are looking for !  
Conditions: you must be at least 8 years old and know how to swim.
