Rafting in the Verdon at Castellane
Team Spirit !
A raft is an inflatable boat, which can seat up to 8 people as well as your guide making it the ideal activity for groups and families.
It is perfectly adapted to sail down the river, allowing you to enjoy 100% of our beautiful landscape and experience all the fun of white-water.Buena Vista rafting invites you to share in our passion of the river by offering you various programs:
"Discovery" : 35€/pers
An 8km descent through the landscape that leads to the ‘Canyon du Verdon’, this trip lasts 1h30 and is available for children over the age of 10, granted that they can swim.
The Program:-reasonably calm waters to begin with, enabling you to settle into the rhythm of rafting which will then be followed by choppier areas with small rapids and one class 4 rapid (“La Barre St. Jean”) ending at the beach of ‘Chasteuil’.
An 17km descent between Castellane and Pont de Soleil, which the more daring of the group can attempt to swim in.This 2h30 trip will take you down the beautiful green waters of the Verdon, passing through some magnificent landscapes to finally arrive at the entrance to the Grand Canyon.
A 23km descent that lasts 3 hours to finally arrive at the entrance to the Grand Canyon, where the Point Sublime will surely take your breath away with its incredible landscape whereby you are surrounded by imposing cliffs, and if you are very lucky you may spot a ‘griffon vulture’!
