The Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix offers you the chance to enjoy an unforgettable summer inflatable canoe experience. Also known as canoe-rafts and mini-rafts, these two-person crafts are designed for river navigation with double paddles. Manage your own descent of the Arve, that legendary playground of the Mont Blanc region, in complete autonomy as your instructor accompanies you in his or her own canoe.

Try out some audacious moves over 45 minutes and along 6km of river for some serious extreme excitement! With its inflatable structure and self-draining base, inflatable canoes are half way between rafts and canoes.

We meet at the Compagnie des Guides’ inflatable canoe water sports base, with its warm showers and lockers, in the heart of Chamonix. The only requirements to be able to participate in inflatable canoeing are: you must be able to swim 25m, to put your head under water, and be over 1.4m tall.
