Water activities for everyone

Sports & fun on the lake

In Geneva, the lake is a vast playground for lovers of water sports, fun and relaxation. Why not rent a paddle board at the Tropical Corner or at Plage du Reposoir for an escapade on the water? If you’re more of a windsurfer or a wakeboarder, you can take lessons at the Tropical or rent your own board. For wakeboarding, head to Quai Gustave-Ador just after the Jet d’Eau at Wake Up for a sports outing. For pedal boat enthusiasts and sunbathers, Les Corsaires offers a range of small pedal boats for hire, including one with a slide to jump into the water and cool off.

Adventure on the Arve and the Rhône

Discovering Geneva’s rivers is a unique experience. Rafting on the Arve is not only fantastic for thrill seekers, but you will also have close and personal contact with nature, including waterfalls, rapids and calmer areas where you can dive into the water.

A slightly gentler way to explore the river is by canoe rafting with inflatable boats, which are stable and easy to handle in all situations. Choose a guide or go it alone down the Rhône for 2-3 hours (7 or 12 km).

Rent a boat for a day

Enjoy a day out by renting a boat in Geneva. Sailing boat, motorboat, fishing trip, the destination offers many boat rental possibilities, whether you’re your own pilot, or a professional takes you on a getaway.

How about spending an evening on a private boat for dinner or the whole night? Rent the Homeboat and enjoy a boat as if it were your own! All details on https://www.homeboat.ch/.
