Arc Aventures welcome cabin at the crossroads next to the Isère River. Arc Aventures Rafting
In rafting you go down the river on a large inflatable boat. There are 4 to 9 spaces for participants and a guide sits at the back to steer and instruct everyone. Participants sit on either side and paddle as the guide tells them to.
We have two types of rafting to be able to accommodate adults and children during the activity.
The Discovery rafting is shorter and doesn’t include any rapids so it is perfect for children from 8 years old (they need to have had their 8th birthday before or on the day of the activity) and from 12 years old everyone can do the Integrale rafting which includes the rapids and gorges.
If you have mixed ages in your family, we can usually find a solution where you do the first part of the activity together and those who aren’t 12 yet get out just before the rapids and return to the whitewater base with the guides while the others finish the activity.
