White Water Rafting

Experience the thrill of alpine rapids as you hurtle down a river route with an instructor and guide, this group activity is a social high-point, always enjoyed with other Alpine Elements guests and will have you wanting more!

The Alps are famous for their rapids and this is our most popular activity, promising exhilarating fun for all ages and a sociable day out with other guests. It’s such a great activity, which is why we include it for FREE with our holidays to Morzine and Les Gets. You will join one big raft for eight to ten people with a guide at the stern steering you down the rapids. Every rafter will be armed with a paddle as your guide drives the raft downstream, using the rocks and swells to heighten the sensation!

Exhilarating fun for all ages

Rafting is a half-day excursion and the actual session lasts for about 2½ hours. It’s great for all ages and offers a thrilling day out, run by a very professional, local rafting centre. They will brief you on kit use and safety before you go off to the rapids with your instructor and guide.

You will start off after a safety briefing and an introduction to using paddles and correct rafting technique. You guide will use the rocks and swells to heighten the sensation and every so often the raft will stop for a break in a calm patch of water where passengers can get out and go for a swim or jump of rocks into deep pools if conditions allow.

Perfect for Families & Groups

Rafting is great fun for groups and you’ll bond with your family and other Alpine Elements guests. You will join one big raft for eight to ten people, with a guide-cum-instructor at the stern steering you down the rapids. Every rafter will be armed with a paddle and the rest is just great fun!

Everyone gets a free session of rafting and the under 8-year olds will have an alternative activity. If parents wish to raft without their kids then we can sometimes arrange an extended Kids Club or nanny care.
