If you want to experience the sheer pleasure of an exhilarating river rafting expedition, then you are welcome to the Isere River. Originated near the famous Val d’Isere ski resort of the Graian Alps region, the Isere River is an approximately 290 kilometer long waterway located in the southeastern part of France. Recognized as one of the most popular rafting destinations of France, Isere River is also the venue for conducting intercontinental kayaking championships.
Attracting hordes of rafting aficionados each year across the globe, this captivating river comes up as an ideal choice for river rafting. While Arly, Arc and Drac are some of the prominent tributaries of the watercourse, the upper valley of the Isere River is known as Tarentaise. After flowing through some of the most distinguished French cities and departments, Isere ends up in the illustrious Rhone River near Pont-de-I’Isere.
The mesmerizing glaciers of the Tarentaise Valley coupled with the stunning Mont Blanc Massif make this waterway the ultimate haven for all rafters. During summertime, the flow of Isere River reaches its peak as it becomes completely full. Regarded as a paradise for white water journeys, the tumultuous Isere River can offer you amazing rafting delight, if you paddle down this spectacular river sitting on an inflatable canoe.
You will obtain a never-before thrill while crossing the valleys. The stretch of 22 kilometers between the places of Centron and Bourg Saint Maurice offers all rapid lovers a regaling experience. Aime, which rafters face at the half way mark, is one of the most notable rapids of this region. The fabulous Gorges de la Pucelle as well as the rapids of Centron can be found towards the end of the enticing river-course.
