Canoraft Annecy

White water specialist in Annecy
for 20 years

 Choose your thrills with the different descents!


Why come and discover canorafting around Annecy? Well, because the Isère and Dranse rivers are among the most beautiful in the Alps !

But also because canorafting is a subtle blend of rafting and canoeing that will give you new sensations.

Do you like adrenalin ? Then this is the activity for you.  Also known as a hot dog, the canoraft is a two-seater boat. So you can take on the rapids of our rivers alone or as a duo, without the disadvantages of a traditional canoe !

Climb aboard this two-seater inflatable boat, which is a little less stable than a raft. You’ll be as close as possible to the rapids and will have to manage your trajectory, alone or in pairs, under the watchful eye of our guide on his own boat.

So don’t wait any longer and embark on this new discovery for more thrills and more fun !
