Full description

From May to September, the Dora Baltea is the most beautiful and water-rich river in Europe. Rafting enthusiasts know this and there is not a year when they miss out on experiencing the river at its most beautiful.

The Classic Top Programme is our most exciting proposal for thrill-seekers.

The sporting descent will take place on three stretches of rivers in Valdigne, of increasing difficulty, with fourth-degree rapids, to fully experience the adventure and beauty of this sport.

The teamwork of the group is a fundamental prerequisite to make the experience unforgettable.

What we will do

We set off from our base. The first three kilometres we practise trying out manoeuvres and coordinating the crew by assimilating the instructions given during the theory lesson.

On arrival at Lake La Salle, we will take a dip to test how cold the water is and how nice it is to be carried along by the current.

Afterwards, we will transfer with vans and carts to navigate the Bombardon rapids (third degree) and, to conclude the experience, after getting familiar with this new medium we will navigate a third section of fourth degree with the Fontine rapids.

Who it is aimed at

Ideal route for rafting enthusiasts. The minimum age is 14 years and everyone can participate as long as they have good aquatic skills and are not afraid of water. You can participate with a weight under 125 kg.
