Rafting in the guil "Le Queyras"

A beautiful country with diverse and spectacular landscapes, France is a busy tourist spot all the year round. Home to several renowned rivers, France is a paradise for all lovers of natural beauty. More so, the French rivers have the ideal condition for indulging into a variety of water recreational activities among which whitewater rafting holds a prominent position.
The best action, however, is observed in the French Alps, which sports the finest rafting rivers. Among the long list of waterways, there is the River Guil, a special river that takes you far away from the civilized world and brings you to the land of long gorges, canyons and frothy waves. The Guil travels through two beautiful gorges, named as “les combes”, which are built from bare rock. The first gorge figures into a natural moat and the second one, famous as “the guardian angel”, is quite challenging portion of the entire river. Right from here, the river now flows through several steep rapids.

As the waters splash at your face and the chilling air hurls through your hair, you will surely enjoy the scenic beauty of the riverside all along your rafting expedition.
