General information

For 1 hour and over 8 km, this active itinerary will bring you through the Arveyron, the stream where the waters of the Mer de Glace glacier flow. Before falling into the Arve, the Arveyron includes several restless sections, typical of mountain streams! You will then continue with a classic descent of the Arve.  This challenging descent is the dream destination for people having previous experience with rafting and who love to be shaken !

We meet at the Compagnie des Guides’ rafting water sports base, with its warm showers and lockers, in the heart of Chamonix. The only requirements to be able to participate in rafting are to be over 15 years old and be over 1.50m tall.
