Rafting en Ubaye

The Ubaye Valley 

Nestled between the Hautes Alpes and the Alpes de Haute-Provence, the Ubaye valley is one of the most beautiful destinations for rafting.

In spring, when the snow melts, the Ubaye becomes a gigantic torrent with huge rapids. From then on we go rafting on ephemeral courses such as the Haute-Ubaye between Italy and Jausiers or the Bachelard at the gateway to the Mercantour Park in the commune of Pra-Loup.

When the conditions become milder, rafting between Barcelonnette and the Serre-Ponçon lake is available to all. From the age of 5, it is possible to go on an adventure on this wild river in complete safety.

For thrill-seekers, 2 steep sections are available if conditions permit

Join us in the Ubaye valley to try the amazing experience of white water rafting down the Ubaye.

This river in France is one of the most beautiful rivers in the Southern Alps. Its natural course, without any dam, lends itself perfectly to the practice of unusual descents in the middle of nature. 

Whatever your level and experience, we can offer you a discovery or sensational trip with the activity of your choice.

The most beautiful part of the Ubaye to go rafting in spring or canoeing in summer is at our base in Méolans-Revel between Barcelonnette and the Lac de Serre-Ponçon.

Each guide, passionate such as Nicolas, Charles or Guillaume will accompany you for the discovery or the improvement for the most beautiful descent of the Ubaye in raft.

Whatever the number of people, in family or between thrill-seekers, the descent of the Ubaye in rafting is practiced from the age of 4 years. Jumps and swimming in white water are part of each rafting trip.

It is a great gift idea for a day or weekend in the Alpes de Haute Provence.

If rafting on the Ubaye is not enough for you, try canoeing, hydrospeed or canyoning.

For a day or a weekend, organise a family holiday in Provence near Barcelonnette. Many white water sports activities on the Ubaye will be possible.

When you get off the raft, you will find some wonderful photos that you can offer as a gift with a sliding scale of charges depending on the number of people.
