Rafting on the Arve river

Thrilling water excursion in the middle of Geneva.

An absolutely unexpected way to discover a different facet of Geneva. Take a raft and discover a truly unexpected side of the City…you won’t believe your eyes!

The Arve river has its source in the Mont-Blanc massif. It flows through France and becomes, after seven kilometres through Swiss territory, a tributary of the Rhône. After a short briefing on equipment, technical details and safety, we plunge our rafts into the river in the midst of a nature still unspoiled, and approach the city. Alternating calm waters with moderately difficult, fast moving sections, we are protected from the hustle and bustle of the city by a curtain of trees along the riverbank. Rafting on the Arve river provides the opportunity to experience whitewater sports safely, under optimal conditions.
