Canoeing down the Arve River

Rafting Loisirs

A real river rodeo because it is smaller and therefore less stable than a raft, the Canoe Raft will give you sensations and total autonomy.

The Arve flows down from Mont Blanc's glacier, travelling through Geneva for 7km before joining the Rhône at the Pointe de la Jonction.

After a short briefing on the equipment, technique and safety, we dive into a still wild natural environment, clearly leading us into the city.

Alternating between calm and medium-difficulty rapid waters, we move with the speed of the current, protected from the urban turmoil by a wall of trees lining the bank. Open to all, you can safely try out white water sports on the Arve in the best conditions, under the supervision of our guides.



Every day at 1.45pm and 5.45pm
