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!

It's up to you to manage your trajectories, the difficulties of the river and your crew, all under the watchful eye of a professional guide who supervises you from another boat.
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.
