More about Rafting in France

France has literally hundreds of rivers, but those most suited for whitewater rafting trips tend to be concentrated in the South. “Departements” or regions like Pyrennees-Atlantiques, Ardeche, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, and the Rhone-Alps offer opportunities for families and novice rafters as well as challenging runs for more experienced river runners.
