The mini-raft is a craft for four people. You are in control so you have all the excitement. Fun guaranteed!

Description

Get the full Haute-Savoie experience, from Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval to Samoens, through the beautiful Tines Gorges... Maybe you've already been rafting and you thoroughly enjoyed it? Come and try out the smaller version: the 'mini-raft'!

These rafts are suitable for 3 or 4 people and you will be sailing it almost on your own down the river (your guide will be there but in a separate raft).
A sporting challenge where coordination between participants is paramount!
One of you will 'take the helm' and will guide the raft while the others will be rowing!

An 8km-descent on this lightweight group raft. You'll need to be able to count on each other and keep the same pace to be able to take on the river Giffre and its white water rapids!
Nobody will be able to just sit back and let the others do the work. You'll all need to do your part. What about the surroundings? Yes, the setting is very beautiful! But you'll need to have your eyes on the water, to anticipate the movements and the current... A very different way of exploring this beautiful place in our region.

The guide will give you a briefing beforehand and give you some tips on how to manage the river and some rafting techniques before you 'take the plunge'.

What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and make a booking!

    Upon arrival:
    Respect the directions to avoid contact with too many people. The directions will be indicated and explained so everyone understands the organisation.
    Hand sanitiser is available for everyone in 4 different places throughout the premises.

    Changing rooms:
    Our changing rooms are inside a 40 m2 chalet. Each group has a specific area with 1m distance between each group, separated by furniture.
    There are different entrance and exit doors and a central walkway to avoid contact with other people.

    Wearing masks:
    While being equipped, every visitor should wear a mask.
    Masks are compulsory on the return shuttle minibus.
    Each participant should therefore make sure they arrive with a mask.
    Our welcome staff will also be obliged to wear a mask.

    Shuttle service:
    The number of people per vehicle will be limited to 7 at the rear (according to recommendations from health authorities).

    Activities:
    - Rafting: the boats will only be used by groups who book together (families or friends travelling together). The number of people in one boat is limited to 6, so that social distancing with the guide can be respected.
    - Canoraft-airboat and mini-raft: semi-autonomous activities will be given priority, wherever possible. Groups of 8 maximum for one guide. For these activities, social distancing rules can be respected.

    Equipment:
    All our equipment is individual. Everything is completely disinfected after each use (Wetsuit, socks, jacket, helmet, life jacket and oar). We also disinfect the boats and 'dry-box' after each group.

    Let's take good care of each other!
