Bourg-Saint-Maurice Whitewater Base

Our hearts and headquarters are at the Bourg-Saint-Maurice Les Arcs international whitewater base. The reason is simple: the Haute-Isere is a perfect river for whitewater navigation and all the other sports that go with it such as canoeing-raft which we also run from Bourg-Saint-Maurice..
Of course we also paddle the best white water rivers in the rest of France and Europe, and even organise expeditions to Morocco, Quebec, Nepal and Chile.

Our services:
Rafting, hydrospeed, canoeing and canyoning

We offer various whitewater activities of varying levels of difficulty depending on your experience, your ability and how much time you have.
These activities run from a half day to a whitewater weekend at Bourg-Saint-Maurice Les Arcs La Plagne Tarentaise, a 5-day course or even an expedition for the keenest among you.

On rafts or hydrospeed, you will run the best rivers in the Alps one after the other, including the famous three Savoie and Aosta Valley rivers: the Doron de Bozel, the Haute-Isere and the Dora Baltea (unforgettable).
It goes without saying that with our multi-activity programmes you will be able to enjoy all whitewater disciplines, from rafting to canyoning, plus hydrospeed and canoeing.

THE MOST POPULAR WHITEWATER COURSE

The most popular whitewater course is, without doubt, the run down the Haute-Isere which winds past Landry, Gothard and Aime all the way to Centron.

It is always in great demand and always greatly appreciated. Our base camp in Bourg Saint Maurice Les Arcs provides the rendezvous and start point for this trail. Your river guide will be there to welcome you and provide navigation and safety. Then it’s time to change into wetsuits and paddle the River Isere as far as Centron, navigating past Landry, Gothard and Aime.

BESPOKE WHITEWATER COURSES

Starting from Bourg Saint Maurice, the 5-day whitewater course gives you a chance to discover the best white water and canyoning routes in the Northern Alps.

River Runners Rafting Organisation (Coureurs de Rivières), specialists in navigating rivers in France, organise à la carte whitewater programmes. There is a flat rate per river guide, whether for a half-day, full day, weekend or longer stay.

In the "Multi Activities" section you will find a few ideas for weekends, courses or whitewater trips so you can join in our set programmes, whether you are on your own or part of a group.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us so that together we can draw up a white water plan covering the rivers, seas and canyons you would like to explore or revisit in the ideal season.

Canoeing is a whitewater experience to share.
