Owner description: Our base is situated exactly at the confluence with the Dora Courmayeur and the Dora La Thuile.Here is the best River Rafting for those who want strong emotions. At the bottom of the rapids starts the children and family section, also for those who want to enjoy nature in a more calm way. Other activities besides Rafting are Kayak, Canyoning, Topo Duo and Tandem Paragliding. To relax Yoga by the river.

My rafting experience was excellent. I wanted to experience class 4 rapids and I think Totem was the only one who operated in that stretch. The guide was great and everyone were very friendly and professional. The river was great as well, it had non stop rapids unlike other rivers I rafted. Overall I would highly recommend Totem and this river.

We booked a 4h rafting with Totem Adventures.
The guides were nice and also the rafting itself was cool.
But that's about the good side.
For the rest we were really disappointed!

At the beginning we received a very long briefing and then had to wear some stinky wetsuits and carry the boat to the water. We recorded the rafting with the gopro and the first part was 1h20min. Then we had to take the boat out and go to another place where we continued for 25min! There were 2 other persons who had only booked 2h and were asked to pay the difference to the 4h package as they wanted to continue for the second leg.

After the rafting we had to carry around the boat again (really heavy!) and even wash our wetsuits in some dirty water. That also explained the bad smell... Also if you pay as a customer, you should not need to do these things...

In the end we started the whole action at 2pm and finished at 5pm, so I asked Eve, one of the managers, what happened to our 4h trip. She first tried to explain me, that from 2 to 5 it is 4h but luckily I can count to 5 and showed her that is only 3h. And that was the whole time, inclusive washing clothes, carrying the boat and briefing, the rafting itself was only 2h!
So I asked to get money back and she got very mad at me, really impolite and asked us to leave immediately although my boyfriend still wanted to buy the fotos.

Really sad to have such an unprofessional woman working for the company and destroying the event!
The guys were really nice and good and I felt sorry for them having to work for such a boss!

They also recommended us a restaurant but Eve told us it was closed which it was not! Ridiculous that behaviour!

There are many rafting companies in the Aosta valley, so just feel free to chose another one where you don't get cheated and they treat you with respect!

The trip today was unbelievable! All of the staff were extremely knowledgeable,friendly, fun and very well versed in the section of the river we paddled on. The rafting debrief was very thorough, and all safety instructions were clear. We enjoyed being out in a small group of three (just the two of us and our guide). It felt like we were out on the river amongst friends! Pictures were ready as soon as our raft was complete, and easily shared with us. The trip and pictures were very affordable and we Would highly recommend this company to anyone wishing to raft in this area! Grazie!!

A must try rafting experience with this amazing team from Totem Adventure. We spent 4 hours in their company of which 1 hour of them was a safety induction course and precautions of how to handle situations on the river. Safety is a must for these guys, they also sent 2 extra people with the kayak in front of each team to lead us from a safe way and be first aiders in case of emergency. They are really experienced and ready to deal with every situation. It was really fun. Probably the best adventure activity I have ever done in my life. Highly recommended. The river level was high because we found hot temperature and the snow melted quicker so the level of the river got higher. Also they have got a really detailed and helpful website. 10+ for these guys. Well done and thanks for everything. I will definitely come back to try canyoning and paragliding with you. God Bless xxx
