Rafting weekend : the programme
- First day :
The morning is taken up by the full descent of the Haute-Isere from Bourg St Maurice to Centron, 18 km and 2h15 of non stop rafting . First of all, we glide down the easiest part of the course which is the introduction section. This enables you to gently discover the techniques and sensations of rafting. You then move on to the more sportive section of the river, with the famous rapids of Aime and then the magnificient gorges of Centron.
After lunch, we join the valley of Bozel and the river of the Doron, one of fastests rivers of the Northern Alps. The course is 6 km long, takes about 1h15 to paddle down and is very different from the Haute Isere: quick sequences, tight bends, small jumps, navigation under trees, leaving you unforgettable memories!
- Second day :
Depending on where you are staying, we set off, either late evening or the next morning over the pass of the ' Petit Saint Bernard' (2300 m with great views of the Mont Blanc) to join the Valley of Aoste. We embark on the Dora Baltee and paddle down the best part of the river, through the rapids of Pré-Saint-Didier, finishing with the crossing of the famous dam barrier.
We also discover the gorges of Leverogne with the 'Moby-Dick' passage, the crowning piece of our navigation!
End of activities at 17H00.
Period: from June 1st to September 30th (depending on the opening of the pass) ).
