White Water River Rafting

Swiss Sports Travel offers this exciting half-day tour (4 hs) in partnership with Frogs Rafting. We will drive you around one hour from Geneva to the meeting point on the river, where you’ll be fully kitted out for your time on the river.

Before the trip, Frogs Rafting will provide you with helmets, full wetsuits (no worries about being cold), boots, life jackets, and given a paddle. When you arrive at the take-off point, you will be given a safety briefing explaining the river and good practices while you’re on it.

After your briefing, we will take you to the take-off spot (it varies depending on the water level and rafting level chosen).

With a maximum of 8 people in the boat, your bi-lingual guide will be with you during your descent. He will take you down rapids and through gorges, pointing out any wildlife on the way and suggesting novel ways to go down the river.

At the end of your ride on the river, we’ll take you back to your vehicle. We advise everyone to bring a towel and bathing costume with them.

Rafting Options

1st timers

This option is ideal for those who want to get a feel for rafting without committing to the whole trip! It starts just below the start of the Classic trip, missing out on one rapid that can make people anxious. There’s plenty of time to get used to the equipment and have a swim so that you can feel the water. It’s a fabulous introduction for anyone uneasy in water but keen to push themselves! Also, it’s a good choice for families with kids.

Rapids – II / III
Distance to the start – 5 km
Start – Drossage
Finish – Frogs Rafting Base
Approximate time on the water – 1h15
Level – Green
Minimum age – 8 years

Classic Trip

The Classic Trip is an excellent option for families with kids looking for a bit of adventure. After a quick briefing about safety procedures and paddling techniques, you start playing on the river. The trip goes through big rocks, characteristic of the River Dranse, creating a unique ambiance. You will have the opportunity to challenge yourself in the river by playing and swimming in the many currents and jumping from the rocks if you wish.

Rapids – II-III(IV)
Start – Dependent on water level, normally Cassine
Finish – Before bridge D 902
Approximate time on the water – 1h15

In-between Trip

For people who feel more adventurous and confident. Looking for a thrill, but not quite up for the Pro just yet! It’s a bit longer ride, having more time to enjoy the river. We start slightly above the Classic starting point but below the Pissette Rapid. It allows participants to enjoy some grade iv obstacles without doing the big rapid.

Start – 50 ms above the Cassine (Classic departure)
Finish – Before bridge D 902
Approximate time on the water – 1h45
Difficulty – 3/5

Pro Trip

Adrenaline! That’s what you’re looking for. Maximize your time on the river: more swimming, more (and higher) jumps, and bigger rapids! The Pro Trip starts as far up the river as possible. You’ll experience the upper Dranse: cliffs and narrow passes. The first part is a scenic warm-up for the second part! We’ll have a short drive to avoid the un-navigable part of the higher Dranse. We’ll get back in the river just above the grade IV rapid called La Pissette. It’ll be the first rapid on the second half of the trip, and the whole crew must be working together. After the crazy rocks, we come to the start of the In-between Trip and continue downriver and back to the base.

Rapids – II-IV
Start – the Romain Bridge, by EDF Hydroelectric Plant
Finish – Before bridge D 902
Approximate time on the water – 2.5hrs
