Discover the river “La Guisane” during your rafting descent:
A tributary of the Durance, La Guisane is a river that has its source at the Lautaret pass. With a length of 27.7 km, La Guisane is fed by the waters coming from the glacier of Casset and Monêtier.
It is during the months of May to August that La Guisane offers the largest flow, as well as it is the ideal time to practice rafting in Hautes-Alpes.
The turquoise and clear waters of this river associated with the wild and preserved nature of Briançon’s surroundings will ensure a change of scenery.
