White water swimming is a sport practiced in rivers
You are lying with your head forward on your foam sled which allows you to slide and therefore navigate. The Isère is the Savoy river best suited to whitewater swimming or Hydrospeed. The course of the gorges, from Aime to Centron which is offered to beginners, is a sporting descent which allows from the first session to feel the pleasures of sliding in the rapids and surfing on the waves (7km descent, about 1h30 in water). After having acquired the technique of swimming in white water on the course of the gorges, you can then do the improvement course much more technical and longer (14km, about 2h30 in the water).
