I don’t have a car in summer

Each activity has a specific time-slot and meeting point, these are given upon booking.
– If you are staying in Les Arcs and would like to participate in rafting or hydro-speed swimming you have two options:
Everyday, you can use the free shuttle buses to get to Arc 1600 and from there use the Funicular train (see the Les Arcs website for prices) to go down to Bourg St Maurice whereupon we will pick you up in our private bus that will take you to the white-water base. At the end of the activity we will drop you back at the Funicular train station in Bourg St Maurice for the return journey.
On Tuesdays and certain Wednesday morning, take our free bus directly from the Villards village in Arc 1800 down to the white-water base. At the end of the activity we will drop you back to the Funicular train station in Bourg St Maurice where you can get the Funicular back up to Les Arcs and use the free shuttle buses to arrive at your chosen destination within the resort.
Don’t forget to tell us if you need any of these options when you book.
– Unfortunately it is not possible to participate in canyoning without a car as the meeting points are at least an hour’s drive from Les Arcs and they are quite out of the way so there are no public transport options.
