The descents

52 km navigable of 80 km inland waterways

The Ubaye River, the wild and mythical emblem of the French Alps, has given its name to the Valley. From its source at the Col du Longet, at 2655 meters above sea level, close to Mont Viso and the Italian border, it runs almost 80 km before emptying into Lake Serre-Ponçon whose waters flow into the Durance.

Preserved and mysterious, often considered one of the most beautiful in Europe, it offers a stretch of ten, class II, the easiest, to class VI, regarded as "insurmountable" descents over 50 kilometers between the Riou Sec, in the municipality of Saint-Paul sur Ubaye to Roche Rousse, at the entrance of Lake Serre-Ponçon.
