Rafting base with ecological welcome – Eco place

Solar energy stored during the day of Rafting on the Ubaye will be returned to you in the form of hot water and light.

You will also be able to follow the natural cycle of water regeneration: from its recovery (rainwater), to phyto-purification through a bed of reeds.

The mystery of dry toilets will no longer hold any secrets for you when you place sawdust and shavings in our composting toilets. You will thus participate, with us, in the protection and respect for our natural environment of the Southern Alps.

More details on our dry toilets, to protect our nature in the Southern Alps

Called here, the “Crazy toilets”, the dry toilets are toilets that do not use water. What acts as a flush is in fact sawdust, which we collect from the Méolans Revel sawmill, near Barcelonnette. Just drop a ladle of sawdust and it's over, nature does its work. Once the bin is full, it must be emptied and it goes into the compost and turns into soil.

Our “Crazy toilets” are equipped with a urinal and a urinette. The urinette allows women to pee standing up, an ingenious and very practical system.

Our toilets are installed in the middle of our flarch forest, this allows you to admire the lush vegetation of Lauzet-Ubaye. These are incredible toilets, not to be missed on a rafting base during your stay in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence!

And our one-of-a-kind solar shower

Come and discover the most beautiful ecological shower of the Barcelonnette valley, not to mention the world! The water from the shower is connected to the drinking water system of the village of Lauzet-Ubaye.

The word solar means that you need sunshine, logic! In fact, our shower is heated by the powerful sun of the Barcelonnette region, thanks to a water heater and a well-oriented solar panel. In about 4 hours, the water temperature becomes very pleasant and it is a pleasure to take a shower heated by mother nature.

Our shower is located in the middle of the forest, in a small barrel cabin, which makes this moment of relaxation a bit unusual and rejuvenating. And believe us, back at the Rafting base, after your activity in the river, taking an outdoor shower heated by the sun is an extraordinary moment.

Our unusual accommodation in Ubaye

In order to complement our passion for originality and our love for nature, we have installed bubble accommodation in the trees within our Crazy Water Rafting whitewater base. We called them Crazy Bulle accommodation.

Those are transparent tents suspended through the larch trees. It’s an incredible experience of unusual accommodation where you sleep in a floating bubble in the trees. In this completely atypical place, you can enjoy a unique moment as a couple, with friends or family.

Our unusual accommodation is located above the Crazy Water Rafting base and blends into the original world of the place and the mountainous landscape of the Barcelonnette valley. Les Bulles being close to the Ubaye river, you will be able to hear the sound of the rapids which will await you the next morning after breakfast.

Come and discover our Rafting base in Ubaye, and treat yourself to a stay of adventure and total disconnection!

We offer you an original experience on our Ecological Rafting base, of the whitewater activities breathtaking and a completely unusual choice of accommodation.

Wat een geweldige ervaring, raften over de Ubaye! Prachtige natuur, mooie afwisselende tocht (inclusief zwemmen en in het water springen!) en geschikt voor elk niveau. Onze kinderen (6 en 9 jaar) hebben een super eerste raft ervaring gehad, mede dankzij onze leuke en goede gids. Ze willen zeker nog een keer :-)

Wonderfull family rafting experience. Just a little bit too much for my sensitive eight year old, but great overall. The river is beautiful with nice surroundings. The guide was excellent (forgot his name 🙄) and the whole team was very nice. The trip down the river took about one and a half hour with some stops. If you visit this place, your're not gonna be sorry! 👍🏻
Un lieu calme et agréable, accueillit par une équipe sympathique. Mise à disposition du barbecue pour le repas du midi avant le rafting. Tout est là pour votre bonheur.

Merci @CrazyWaterRafting pour les moments géniaux en famille. Nous avons fait rafting, rando aquatique et kayak avec 2 adultes et 2 ados : génial !! Guides super sympa, très pro, Contrairement à ce que l'on entend a la télé, le niveau d'eau dans cette rivière et plus que suffisant pour s'éclater ! Nb: la rando aquatique n'est pas très connue mais super aussi, descente de la rivière en nageant, dans un secteur plus calme que celui pour le rafting. Explication sur la nature, superbe paysages, surprise à la fin... Encore merci. Jérôme, Caroline, Charlotte et Manon.

We did two descents, one by raft and one by kayak, both with Julien as a guide. He seems totally crazy when you first meet him, but he was a great guide and made our day. Really spectacular river, with a lot of rapids and great views. We got out of the boats to swim a bit in one of the rapids and they took us to a rock where we could jump in to the water. Julien and the crew of Crazy Water are real professionals, but in for a laugh and a joke. A pity we could'n do the 'sport' descent, because of bad weather. But we sure come back. One remark; their 'bar' is quite empty, so make sure to bring your own drinks and food if you're planning to stay for a day.
