Informations sur l'organisation des activités :
Tout d'abord, nous commencerons par une présentation rapide de notre structure. Puis, c'est le temps de l'équipement. Nous vous fournirons votre équipement : combinaison néoprène intégrale, bottillons néoprènes, gilet de sauvetage, casque, et une pagaie ou une paire de palmes en fonction de l'activité. Une fois équipés, nous vous conduirons sur le lieu d’embarquement de la descente. Ensuite, nous vous exposerons un briefing concernant les principales consignes de sécurité, techniques de pagayage, tout ce qu’il est nécessaire de savoir afin de bien profiter de votre descente. N'hésitez pas à nous interroger, il n'y a jamais de mauvaise question. Au cours de la descente, nous réaliserons plusieurs pauses afin d'agrémenter la descente de sauts et nage. N'hésitez pas à interroger votre guide sur l'environnement de la rivière, l'organisation des courants, etc. A la fin de descente, c'est le moment du retour à notre base pour se changer en affaires sèches. C'est pourquoi nous vous conseillons de venir avec votre serviette et votre maillot de bain.

Les activités sont d’une durée moyenne de deux heures.
L'âge minimum pour la pratique du rafting est de 8 ans, et de 12 ans pour l’airboat et le canoraft..
Il est obligatoire d’être en mesure de savoir nager 25 mètres sans être assisté (bien souvent la longueur d'une piscine).

This trip goes through gentle rapids and is great for families with younger children, people who are new to the sport, or nervous around water. During the trip you’ll learn how to use your paddle, how to swim safely down rivers, how to get in and out of the boat with control and ease: everything to make you feel at home on the river and hopefully encourage you to do it again !

Rivière Giffre

Advanced Trip

Rapids - II-III

Difficulty - 3/5

Approximate time on the water - 1hrs 30

Minimum age - 14

This trip is slightly longer than the ‘Mini-descent’, and requires a little extra confidence in the water. Ideal for older children and people looking for a bit of an adrenaline rush!

Kitted out in thick, reinforced wetsuits, and after a briefing designed to prepare you for swimming in white-water and negotiating rapids (which appear larger when you're in the water!), you're set to head down the river with your guide.  You're in the water for about 2hrs.  It's important that everyone taking part is confident in water, and a capable swimmer: you will get splashed
