Embark on a fantastic journey on one of the most beautiful rivers in the Southern Alps! Raft down the Durance river in Embrun with a state-certified instructor.

A Raft is an inflatable boat that can accommodate from 4 to 12 persons. Rafting is a very fun and friendly activity and also the best way to discover whitewater sports.

The Durance River
The Durance flows in a large sun-drenched valley. It offers thrilling grade 3 rapids and calmer zones to make the most of the landscape and play with the currents.

Programme
You arrive at Hakuna Matata Rafting in Embrun and gear up (wetsuit, helmet, life jacket), you head for a few minutes ride by minibus to join the starting point of the course. Before boarding, you are briefed on the different techniques and safety rules. Then you board the raft with your teammates and raft down the river for 1:30hr (8km) from Chateauroux or 2:30hrs (16km) from St Clément. Finally back on land and dry, your instructor invites you to share a cool drink at the center.
