Water rafting

Chamonix Summer Holiday(s), Chamonix Activities, Water raftingOn a bad weather day or to combat the heat of high summer in Chamonix, book a trip down the river to tackle the rapids in one of these rafts. A run down the Grade II Arve river through Chamonix town centre is a thrilling experience and a great way to cool off for a couple of hours, while adrenaline seekers can head through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Italy to raft down the highest grade river in Europe for some serious rapids! The rafting experts have a base on the edge of the town centre in Chamonix, with some welcome warm showers for when you get back.

We just ask that you remember to bring your own towels to take with you, as Chamonix All Year towels should not be taken out of your accommodation. And don’t forget your swimsuits!
