Nunayak presents: White-water rafting in the Haute Savoie region

Are you tempted by a white-water rafting adventure on an inflatable boat? You won’t be left to yourself!
A guide can lead a boat with a maximum of 8 persons so, get ready and… jump on the boat!

White-water rafting in Samoëns on the Giffre river in the Mont Blanc region, a magnificent surrounding landascape in the French Alps mountains.​

White-water rafting is an activity, which is practiced on an unsinkable auto-bouncer boat, designed for the running water. A rafting session allows an approach of the river in team under the directives of a guide who will make you maneuver in the rapids for a maximum of sensations and adrenaline !

White-water rafting is a great sport if you want to share a beautiful and funny aquatic stroll or even a sensational descent on the Giffre river. We welcome families, friends, couples and single persons ! We adapt ourselves to your desires !

This is above all a friendly team spirit: so, the sturdiest at the back, the more relaxed in the middle and the most fearless at the front, which allows everyone to enjoy the rafting adventure and to live the true river emotions.

We propose the descent of the Giffre, the river located in our Giffre Valley, but we also offer the descent on la Dranse or even l’Arve.

White-water rafting information

Rafting Haute Savoie on the Giffre

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?
