State-certified professional guide who is independent of white-water sports (Rafting, Hot-dog and Air-Boat inflatable kayaks) - You wish to discover the high Alps and its landscapes, to share memories and emotions, with family or with friends during a fun activity ? So do not hesitate and throw yourself in the water with Rav'eaux Rafting !! A very experienced guide, I would be happy to take you aboard my raft or inflatable kayaks (called Hot Dogs) to share magical moments. Always accompanied to be safe, I would be your guide for half a day of activity in a beautiful setting. Being attentive to your expectations and your desires, I will adapt to your requirements to offer you a personalized descent. In addition, the courses offer a multitude of possibilities for everyone, from the smallest to the largest, to have fun and find happiness. The only condition to come : to know how to swim ! Here is a brief description of these courses : For families, the "classic" course on the river Durance is ideal : From Saint Clément / Durance to Embrun : 17 km of river for 2 hours of activity on the water (Class 2/3) - Unmissable rapids such as "Rabioux wave" or the "Iron bridge", or "the wave of the hut" will spice up this beautiful course (8 people max / raft, 2 people minimum for the hot -dog). For the more athletic, it is the course on the Guil. 7 km of high river rapids. Class 4/5 - This is one of the 10 most beautiful rivers in Europe ! But beware, its beauty is misleading. It's really intense sports rafting. Not recommended for beginners and under 16 years. There too, the rapids of the "Tunnel" or "molosses" which are rapids of class 4/5 (on a scale of 6 max !) Will make you tremble… - 6 people max / raft - For particular requests (group rates, cohesion courses, seminars) contact me directly by email or phone. I'm waiting for you to start the adventure ! See you soon, Calou de Rav'eaux Rafting.

Rafting with Pascal
Hi, we had a fantastic 2 hours on the river with Pascal and would highly recommend him and this trip to any family. Pascal (or Calou as he is known) is a brilliant, fun, calm and wonderful captain and guide. We were all total novices and aged from 12 to 19 amongst the kids and two middle aged adults and we all came away exhilarated and inspired. For our beginner state the 14 km Durance river trip was the ideal level - not too much, but never boring. And with great variety and quantity of rapids. For me though it is the quality of the person leading the trip that completely governs whether it is a success or not, and sometimes you get lucky. And we definitely got lucky. Pascal / Calou is a total gem. Utterly in command of his business so safety was never an issue but moreover he made everyone feel included and valued and made it great fun for everyone. We loved it. Thank you Calou!

Access itinerary

Since Guillestre take the direction of Gap. After 2 km of a long straight, you will turn left before crossing the bridge of the Durance at the entrance of the village of Saint Clément / Durance. A large billboard showing the boarding of kayaks and rafts is positioned at the entrance of the site. Take the second entrance to access the parking at the bottom where my room is located at the foot of the building and a few meters from the river. From Gap, cross the village of Saint Clément sur Durance then pass on the bridge which is at the end of the village on the river Durance and turn immediately right. Then again right to access the car parks that lead to the boarding. My local is located right there, by the river on the largest car park.
