Presentation

A raft is an inflatable, unsinkable boat, paddled and led by a qualified guide. Both playful and sporty, it allows a great moment of conviviality. You will sail on the Ubaye river, one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe for white water sports! Expect a succession of impressive rapids, which will follow one after the other without any false note. Your guide will be with you to steer the boat, and he knows the river like the back of his hand!

THE route from Le Martinet to Le Lauzet (class 4 & 5), about 10 km of navigation, offers you varied and sumptuous landscapes. You will cross the Lauzet gorges, pass under the old stone bridges of Roman origin. This canyon landscape is truly unique, it offers exactly the right width to allow your boat to pass... An essential experience for anyone visiting Ubaye.

    First time on the Ubaye river and what a discovery! The Rapid'Eau team was on top from start to finish. The descent was thrilling, with stunning scenery all around. Many thanks to “VV” for his advice and humor. The team is not only professional, but also passionate about what it does, which is reflected in the quality of the management. Sensations, landscapes and adrenaline! Everything is by appointment!

  4. Miriam

    Wonderful experience with a thoughtful Guide. Our 12 year old was quite scared at the beginning, but Yann guided us through the rapids as carefull as possible and during the raft our son started to enjoy the experience and the beautyful environment as much as the rest of the family! We loved it!

  5. Joe

    We chose the family pack for our rafting trip, and we were not disappointed! The kids loved it, and even the youngest were able to participate. The guide was very attentive and knew how to put us at ease. I was impressed by the beauty of the landscapes. The Lauzet gorges are breathtaking. The leisure center is also very pleasant, with a snack and games to relax after the activity. A great day with the family!
