Dora Baltea river rafting full day trip (Italy)
A rafting trip with big memories on the mythical Dora Baltea river in Italy !
16 years old
From May to August
1h30 drive from Annecy, we propose you to spend an exceptional rafting day in Aosta valley in Italy.
With its source at the foot of famous Mont Blanc, the Dora Baltea has kept all the power of the glaciers that feed it; a unique RAFTING experience if you are in the area and a thrill seeker!
From our rafting center in the Tarentaise valley in Savoie, we cross the border to navigate in RAFTING on the prestigious Dora Baltea in Italy.
Depending on the water level, several sections can be paddled: we paddle at least 3 differents sections during the day with the possibility to paddle some of the best whitewater sections for RAFTING in the Northern Alps.
The day usually starts with a warm-up on the upper sections before considering the upper section (Champex-La Salle) or the Avise Gorges (Canyon de l’Inferno). The lunch allows us to rest a bit before considering the afternoon’s programme: either we will discover another part of the river, or we will repeat the most technical sections. The guides decide which parts are interesting according to water levels.
Note: to fully enjoy this trip and to be able to paddle the most technical sections, it is advisable to have already practised rafting before bookingthe Dora Baltea river rafting trip. It is possible to program this river over a weekend with a first day of training on the Isere and the Doron de Bozel rivers (see the program Week-end rafting in the Northern Alps).
To practice rafting, it is mandatory to know how to swim.
