Open Kayak information

Open kayak on the Giffre River

The Giffre River is located in the Haute-Savoie Region and more precisely in the Samoëns Valley. It takes its sources in the  Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval (classified “national park” as a natural reserve). The Giffre River flows in the very heart of an exceptional Valley that is surrounded by an incredible ancient geology. 

You’ll get to know the Tines Gorges, which are a 40-meter deep canyon in which only rafting and other white-water sports can access this spot.

So, let’s get started with Nunayak !



1 – Please arrive 15 min before the activity starts at our rafting base at Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval

2 – Our guides will equip you and make a little briefing before going out

3 – You’ll then be able to go on the river for an unforgetable moment !

4 – Our Nunabus will pick you back up to our base

5 – Our guides will collect the equipment that was given to you

6 – Why not drinking a cold beverage at Nunabar after your session?
