Do you fancy an individual challenge? Then start your adventure at Altitude Rafting! In an Airboat,an inflatable kayak, follow the winding river and experience the thrill of a sports activity in the great outdoors!


Are you just passing through our region? Here on your holidays again? Or have your been here forever?
This activity allows you to get as close as possible to nature... The Haute-Savoie, from a whole new angle, from the river bed!

And what a river... Le Giffre! It rises in the heart of the Sixte-Fer-à-Cheval nature reserve... It is a natural river, which can only be discovered by boat...
So, this is your opportunity!

The airboat (an inflatable kayak) is our smallest boat, which provides the biggest thrills! You're closer to water, closer to nature and closer to its strength...

Before setting off, you have an important briefing from the guide: how to read the river, safety instructions and navigation techniques; everything to be able to start with confidence. The guide will be by your side throughout the descent to show you the route to take and ensure your safety.

You get a unique experience through the Gorges de Tines... Look up and admire the 30m cliff around you! There are surprises throughout the 8km descent, from Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval to Samoëns. It's a feast for your senses, and you'll definitely leave with fantastic memories, and maybe a few aches!

Come and discover our passion and share the experience with us!
