The family rafting

The family rafting tour will give you the chance to explore the gorges du Verdon from an unique way, in security. This tour is adapted to the family with young children (from 6 y.o - 20kg). It's also for the persons who want to discover the activity. This tour is really easy. The landscapes are amazing ! 

 

The departure is at the place called Pont de Taloire, about 7 km downstream from Castellane (on the road of the gorges). We choose this place to start to be more quiet on the river. Almost all the companies of rafting start at Castellane in the same time, it's why we prefer to be downstream, almost alone on the river ! We go down the river until the "bridge of the sun", about 7 km downstream from the starting point. During this trip, we will go down some rapids (easy rapids), there are places to jump (not an obligation). In total, you will be with us for 2h30 (equipment, briefing, rafting, shuttle).

All the raft are guided by a professional guide with french certification. 

For the family with children, you can also discover the gorges with the family floating tour ! It's also a really nice activity to do with your family. 

If this rafting tour is to quiet for you, or if you want to see more landscape, you can check the page of the  Legendary Rafting, a trip bit more sporty, but really beautiful. It's going until the end of the Gorges, where the canyon starts ...
