Château-d’Oex’s own organisation, “Rivières et Aventures”, offers one of Switzerland’s finest rafting trips: 15 km on the River Sarine through the breath-taking Vanel and Gérignoz Gorges. You can also try riverboarding (hydrospeed), kayaking or canyoning with them.
Specialists in river sports for twenty-eight years, Château-d’Oex-based “Rivières et Aventures” are perfect for guiding you through the waters of the River Sarine. Awarded the “Safety in Adventures” label and employing only highly qualified and experienced guides, the organisation offers a variety of descents by white-water raft, riverboard (hydrospeed), kayak or canyoning.

The 15 km raft descent from Saanen to Château-d’Oex, through the Vanel and Gérignoz Gorges, which is considered one of the finest in all Switzerland.
