Rafting on the Arve river

One of the most original and unexpected ways to discover Geneva. By rafting, experience the city in a completely different won't believe your eyes.

Rafting-Loisirs proposes you to descend the Arve: a river which arrives from the Mont Blanc glacier and crosses Geneva on a course of 7 km until the Rhone at the point of the Jonction.

The Arve River arrives from the Mont Blanc glacier and crosses Geneva on a seven kilometer course to finish its course in the Rhône. After a short briefing on equipment, technique and safety, we dive with our boats in a still wild nature approaching already the city. Alternating between calm and fast waters of average difficulty, we are protected from the tumult of the city by a curtain of trees along the banks. Open to all, the Arve will allow you to discover white water sports in the best conditions and in complete safety.
