Rafting in Corsica

We love Corsica for its beaches, its mountains, its charcuterie... But you can also discover it from another angle: rafting!

Navigate in the heart of the Tavignano Valley, and you will discover that from the lowest point you can see just as well what makes the charm of the splendid landscapes of this magnificent island.

In the spring the river is unleashed and releases its waters to allow us to slide on board the rafting on the most beautiful rapids of the Tavignano between Corte and Aléria.

Rafting in Corsica is an activity that can be done with a guide for half a day. From mainland France, the trip to the island is by boat to the ports of Bastia, Calvi or Ajaccio.

The Tavignano river rafting is one of the rare rivers such as the Asco near Monte Cinto or the Golo at Ponte Leccia to be possible in excursion with a guide only at the beginning of the season. Experience this fabulous descent with its thresholds and steep passages in the Tavignano canyon. Strong emotions and laughter guaranteed during this white water rafting activity in the Tavignano canyon.

Only 30 minutes from Corte and 1h15 from Calvi or Bastia, it is recommended to book for a family discovery trip or, depending on your level and the length of time you wish to spend, an outing accessible to people with a sporting character. Discovering Corsica by Rafting or Cano'rafting is to appreciate the adventure through unsuspected landscapes while taking advantage of the perfect but ephemeral water level of early spring. 
From June onwards in Corsica the water level of the canyons is too low to be accessible by rafting. To do sports, there are only canyoning, hiking, diving, kayak rental or jet skiing. If not, you will have to make another boat trip to join us on the Ubaye at Méolans in the Alpes de Haute Provence.
