The upper part of the Saane is a temperamental alpine river with rapids, boils and waves. The two gorges of Vanel and Gérignoz provide an adrenalin kick: the heart beats faster and the commands of the experienced rafting guide become more definite! And then – peaceful drifting downstream again… Cows on paddocks, beautiful alpine panorama and a cruisy river section. Another paddle stroke – done! It was incredible!
More action? Try also hydro speed (river board), canoe and kayak trips as well as canyoning.
