White Water Rafting

Half-day white water rafting excursions around Chamonix

featured in Watersports

Experience the perfect way to see areas of the valley that are otherwise inaccessible with Evolution 2. Are you looking for the ride of your life? Because these beautiful alpine rivers will turn into exhilarating playgrounds for fun!

Are you ready for an amazing white water rafting experience? Take on the swirling rapids, the beautiful scenery and churning waves of the alpine river with expert supervision and full safety equipment! Rafting is the ultimate white water team sport. The rafts can take between 4 and 10 people; it's an excellent way of sharing the thrill of a river descent with others and exploring otherwise inaccessible countryside.

There are two rafting trips available of varying duration and difficulty:

Passy Discovery - 1hr15 on the river & 2hr30 total time including briefing & transfer

Suitable for families with kids from 8 years old. 8km of navigation with 6 rapids with views of the Mont-Blanc, it's ideal for a first approach of the white-water rafting.

Chamonix Action - 45min on the river & 2hr total time including briefing & transfer

The 6km course in Chamonix is the sportiest on offer - also on the Arve River (same as the Passy), but starting from Chamonix, it's narrower & faster with more rapids! Children have to be 10 years old to take part.

The above activities are restricted to summer months only (usually May to mid-September, weather dependent).

Child policy

  • Canoeing & Air-boats: 12 years upwards
  • Rafting: Children over the age of 7 can take part in rafting with gentler routes in Passy. More difficult routes have high age restrictions.
