Details

This beautiful route from the Bernese Oberland to the canton of Vaud is accessible to all, even if the river is wild. It leads us to two superb gorges: those of Vanel, situated 1 km before the village of Rougemont, and those of Gérignoz at the entrance of Château d'Oex. You will admire the magnificent landscape where the walls play with the light, creating shimmering magical reflections.

Tour programme
You arrive at our base at the scheduled time where you first have time to equip yourself (we have private facilities where you can change). After the bus ride to the departure point, your guide gives you a theoretical introduction on safety. We start the descent with a small starting ramp that will not leave you unmoved. During our route we pass by two gorges, the second of which, located towards the end of the route, will make you experience river level IV. When arrriving at our final point, you will be taken back to our base where a small aperitif with cheese tasting of the region is offered.

"We had a great time on the river with Greg, our guide. The scenery is beautiful. The rafting was great - exciting and fun with one class IV rapid and others that were class II-III. The big hit with the kids was going down the rapids by "swimming' in the water."
