Wat een geweldige ervaring, raften over de Ubaye! Prachtige natural, mooie afwisselende tocht (inclusief zwemmen en in het water springen!) en geschikt voor elk level. Eleven children (6 in 9 years) have a super eerste raft ervaring gehad, mede dankzij onze leuke en goede gids. You will not be able to do anything :-)

Wonderful 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! 👍🏻

Thanks @CrazyWaterRafting for the awesome family times. We did rafting, water hiking and kayaking with 2 adults and 2 teenagers: great!! Super friendly, very professional guides. Contrary to what you hear on TV, the water level in this river is more than enough to have fun! Nb: the aquatic hike is not very well known but also great, descending the river while swimming, in a quieter area than that for rafting. Explanation on nature, superb landscapes, surprise at the end... Thank you again. Jérôme, Caroline, Charlotte and 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.
