White-water activities

 Serre Chevalier is the paradise of rafting, kayaking, hydrospeed and canyoning in the french Alps

A little technical something for your delectation!

With its source at the Col du Lautaret, the Guisane follows the Serre Chevalier valley. The Guisane doesn’t have any steep-sided gorges or raging torrents, and this makes it the ideal place for an introduction to mountain water sports or simply as a refreshing change. But beware: for all its placid and calm appeal, it is still an Alpine river and you will be surprised by how fast and strong it is as it reaches Briançon.
