White Water Rafting in the Portes du Soleil

Published on June 11, 2018 by Jo Miller

White Water Rafting on the River Dranse

White Water Rafting is one of the most popular summer activities in the Alps!  It is something everyone should try at least once and is a perfect activity for all the family as they can children from 8 years old.  The boats can take up to 7 people and all the equipment is provided; wetsuits, booties, life jackets & helmets.

There are various companies based in the area who all offer a similar service and routes down the River Dranse.  Their bases are located along the river, about a 20 minute drive from Morzine.  Most of the proposed routes take around 2-2.5 hours including the safety briefing, but there are also more advanced routes for the real adrenaline junkies!

 

 

The guides on the rafting trips make it a really fun experience, and stop frequently getting you to jump in off rocks and small cliffs, capsizing the boat and swimming through rapids.

You can also try hot-dogging and hydrospeeding.  Hot-Dogging is a smaller inflatable canoe which seats 2 people, and you are guided in groups down the river.  Hydro Speeding is swimming though the rapids in a padded wetsuit using a float - definately for the more adventurous!

Prices start from €39 per person for the 'Classic Route' and make sure you book in advance.
