Whitewater sports

There are lots of whitewater activities in Chablais: canyoning, rafting, canoe-raft, hydro-speed, and many more. The River Dranse has 20 kilometres of whitewater rapids.

In calm or racing waters, whitewater sports let you discover the Chablais landscape from another angle.

To participate in whitewater activities you must be in good health and be able to swim at least 25 metres and to go underwater. Minors require parental authorisation.
