Route de Grenoble - Villars-sur-Var

Take advantage of the Var River rapids to try an action-filled white water activity ! Located between the sea and the mountains, under the sun of the Savel Plateau, you will be equipped and briefed before arriving at the departure point located higher up the river where you will board your canoe either alone or with a partner. The canoe's are rigid or inflatable rafts that are sturdy and easy to navigate whether in autonomy or accompanied by a guide. Enjoy a 90 minutes descent (or 2 hours and 30 minutes if you have selected this option) rich in adrenaline-fueled emotions in the heart of one of the most beautiful valley's in the region. You will come across a number of rapids on this active and lively river. At the end of the descent, take some time to relax by taking a refreshing swim in the heart of nature before heading back to the departure point by mini-bus.
