The Ubaye River is a wild and intense alpine torrent that attracts white water sports enthusiasts from all around Europe every year. It flows through the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the water level in it largely depends on the season. So in spring, the flow is really intense and vigorous whilst in summer it decreases and makes the ride more technically complicated. The specialty of the river valley is that it mixes both Mediterranean and Alpine landscapes which make the slower and calmer parts of the ride really exciting.
The best time for white water rafting is between April and September which is when most of the companies offer their services. Aside from the rafting itself, the trips may include camping, swimming, biking, hiking, barbeque, and lots of mixed activities. Don't miss this great opportunity to spend an active and fun weekend in the great Ubaye valley.
