“Make a friend happy, offer them a rafting descent around Annecy!”



With RAFTING ANNECY, outdoor sports enthusiasts, rafting enthusiasts, or casual explorers for a day: discover the world of whitewater. This spring, we offer rafting descents at locations around Lake Annecy.

For whitewater enthusiasts, numerous international competitions take place. The rafting sites are located approximately 1 hour from Annecy on the Dranse River above Thonon and Evian, and on the upper Isère River between Bourg Saint Maurice and Centron.

Rafting can be practiced even on rainy days. Despite that, the conditions were not favorable for whitewater. However, you can still enjoy the wonders of Annecy: its old town, its lake, and its other outdoor sports such as canyoning, mountain biking, paragliding, hiking, or even climbing. Annecy is a magical place for your holidays!

Listen carefully to the take-off instructions:
It’s quite simple: when you hear the signal, you should start walking in the direction of the lake (and the void). At this point, the glider will inflate and exert a backward pull that you will have to resist a little.

Once the canopy is overhead in the flying position, you’ll feel that it’s easy to move forward again. At this point, you should accelerate and above all not stop when you feel the glider starting to take off: you need to run a little in the air!

That’s it! To sum up, you have to walk and then run a few metres towards the lake!
Under no circumstances will you have the sensation of jumping or falling!

The Annecy rafting team will do everything in their power to make sure you enjoy your descent !
