This is the ideal boat for the first practice of an individual boat. The sensations are almost the same as in a kayak, but the navigation technique is greatly facilitated thanks to its shape and design. If you have already practiced paddle sports you will be able to quickly enjoy yourself and develop your technique.
You are guided by a guide from his own boat. He will guide you on how to handle the paddle, how to start in the current, how to evolve and how to stop.
Fun, gliding and rapids, this challenge is made for you !
We give you an appointment at our base (map below) to equip you.
Then we transport you by minibus to the boarding.
Your guide will give you a briefing and you will be off on your adventure. You will first pass a few small class 3 rapids to get you started and, after passing the village of Chantemerle, you will start the most technical part with a series of beautiful class 3 rapids up to the Saint-Chaffrey slide.
From there, you will go up by minibus to Monêtier-les-Bains to change your clothes.
We will also propose you to see the slideshow of photos of your descent.
