Rafting & white water sports in Serre Chevalier (France) Created in 1998, Rafting-Expérience welcomes you on the rivers of the Hautes Alpes in Serre-Chevalier and Briançon. With over 20 years experience our qualified and experienced instructors offer a superb range of white water activities such as rafting, hydrospeed, air boat, canoe-raft and kayak. Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experts, and we cater for all levels of ability by offering safe and quality adventures from easy to more challenging. Also, as every little bit counts in the fight against climate change, with our 2 small coaches of 16 and 28 seats, we have opted for a public transport system for the shuttles which is a simple and efficient way to limit the carbon emissions during our activities.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff very friendly (thank you Elo) and helpful and had good time bobbing down river. Hugely appreciated the time taken by staff to explain everything twice for the ignorant Brits (us) whose French is truly appalling. Thank you all!

Was first rafting experience for my wife and I as well as our friends. We chose the XL with Nelly. The descent was beautiful with a series of easy going and trickier rapids. At the start and because we never did rafting before, we were not all comfortable but Nelly did an excellent job to reassure us with a mix of clear instructions, explanations and loads of fun. With 13 years experience, she knew every rock and was relaxed when possible but also serious when required. We got stuck a few times, we did not always follow well the instructions but she kept calm the all way!
To sum up, great first experience, beautiful surroundings in very competent hands!

We took the "Family Raft" of "Rafting Experiene / Riviere Experience". Rafting is in itself a very nice activity. However when on one side the team of young people was not peddling well, and the boat got stuck, the guide started to blame and shout at them. The good atmosphere was completely gone! I would expect a guide to be able to remain calm in all conditions. A pity.

Cannot recommend these guys enough! We came for a week with our 11 year old as he is finally old enough - both me and my partner had rafted and done hydrospeed before but it was our sons first time. We chose these guys because the price was so reasonable for 3 activities, but in the end the service was of such high quality we dont think any of the others could have been better.
Instructors were knowledgable and patient but allowed our son to try things out and take risks. We had 'Elo'for hydrospeeding and air boats and she is just brilliant! Excellent company, a must visit!
