Rafting-canoe, also called hot dog or airboart is a whitewater sport that is practiced in rivers particular on the Dranse. Solo or duo, it looks like a big inflatable canoe, made of the same material as the rafts for rafting, so they are unsinkable and therefore allow you to navigate without the constraints of rigid plastic kayak (for contact aganst rocks, for example). Equipped with a single paddle and protective equipment (jacket, vest, helmet, neoprene suit), discover a unique sport with sensations that are not reserved to initiates. Master your descent, the cano-raft offers you an easy and affordable progression.

The Dranse is the perfect place for airboat. Well known in Rhône-Alpes, located just above Thonon-les-Bains, it was born from the meeting of 3 rivers from the mountains of Chablais: Dranse of Bellevaux, Dranse of Morzine and Dranse of Abondance. It then flows into Lake Geneva forming a large delta that is now a natural reserve. The 53 hectares of the reserve located east of Thonon-les-Bains offer biodiversity, both wildlife and flora, that is incomparable.

The best time to do rafting is during spring and just before the summer (April to July), when debits are high and the Dranse offer good sensation.

There are 5 main providers in the region to allow you to perform these activities. Use the tabs below to navigate through them and check their information. Happy sailing!
