Activity description

Come and discover the exceptional rivers of the Hautes Pyrénées with Tom Rafting! You will learn how to manoeuvre and position yourself correctly in the water.

In pairs, with family or friends, get on board a 2-seater inflatable canoe, better known as a hot dog, and discover the thrill of white water rafting.

You will be supervised by a state-qualified guide, who will paddle alongside you in a separate boat and open the way for you to navigate.

You will explore 1 river which offers 2 very different routes.

In July and August Tom Rafting offers half day trips, giving you the opportunity to do 2 different trips, one discovery and one thrill for the more adventurous.

During this period the river is class II to III. Class II is perfect for beginners, class III is a bit more physically demanding.

And from May to June and from September to October, depending on your level, you can plan to do both trips interspersed with a picnic in the middle of nature to get the most out of the experience.

Come and row in sync and avoid falling in the water!
