A two-seater canoe-raft will allow you to feel every wave on the Giffre river and offer you a new white water experience. From 12 years old, you and a crewmate will sail down the river, along with a state-certified guide on their own boat. If you want to increase or lower the difficulty on your boat, your guide will know just how to do it. Come and tame one of the wildest rivers in Haute-Savoie!
