A Fresh experience

Wonderful Location

The Ubaye Valley’s beauty attracts tourists from all over the world. The lush, green landscape creates a sense of tranquility, which makes it the perfect place for relaxing.

In the winter months, it becomes a winter wonderland where you can go skiing and snowboarding, but in the summer, when the river is no longer frozen and it’s lovely and warm, the white-water rafting starts again.

Our rafting takes place on the Ubaye River, which originates on the Italian border by the Rubbren Mountain. It winds its way over the landscape until it reaches the stunning Serre Poncon Lake. With more than 50km of winding rapids, fun lies around every corner. The route that we take down the river offers great diversity with some easy sections running into much more technically difficult areas.

Safety First

Our goal is to provide you with a thrilling, unbeatable and unforgettable experience, but not unforgettable for the wrong reasons! That’s why security is always at the top of our minds here at Fresh.

We’ll make sure that your trip down the river is adapted to you and we will never make you do anything that is beyond your capabilities. Each route is carefully planned, taking into account health and safety procedures.

We guarantee that your experience of white-water rafting will be everything that you imagined it would be and more. We cater for individuals, couples, families and even larger groups. You will be suitably equipped and then guided in your raft through the rapids by one of our friendly and skilled guides. If you have never been in a raft before, you have no need to worry. We will show you how to paddle, sit in the raft and feel at ease and comfortable during your journey.
