Useful information

Where are rafting and hydro-speed swimming?

Whether you have booked the Discovery, Plus or Integrale rafting or hydro-speed swimming, you will start at our whitewater base on the banks of the Isère River in Bourg St Maurice. You’ll leave all your things in your bag which will go in our bus. The bus will come to pick you up at the end of the activity and bring you back to the whitewater base.

What is hydro-speed swimming?

In this activity participants lie on their fronts on inflatable small inflatable rafts which are as long as their torso. Their arms sit inside the raft and they hang on whilst leaning on the raft and swimming with the help of fins. The aim is to follow the path swum by guide in front of them as they know where the obstacles such as rocks and whirlpools are and how to avoid them.
